Want More Early Pixel 4 XL Videos? Here!

Google Pixel smartphones may launch on October 15

You certainly fared better than you did last go around, when a bunch of Pixel 3 units started popping up all over the Ukraine well ahead of the phone's October 2018 debut.

The Google Pixel 4 will be receiving an all-new astrophotography mode, according to a newly leaked promotional video.

Another video, posted by Rabbit TV in Thailand, shows additional colours. The first video, which is nearly 7 minutes long, shows off the Pixel 4 XL in all its glory.

In the video, he flashes the CPU-Z app, which we can see specs of the Pixel 4 XL.

Rounding out the next-gen Pixel flagships will be a Project Soli radar that enables a bunch of different gestures which also leaked recently and a wide-angle selfie camera that's capable of replacing the regular camera with cropping and Super Res Zoom software. Perhaps facial recognition will play into the experience, but we'll have to wait and see. It shows off the device in three colors - white, black and coral, all with matte black borders. Those who dug the old penguin-themed Pixel 2 XL should like what they see here. Interestingly, the frame is black no matter what color you pick. The camera app doesn't work and regularly crashes, especially when the individual attempts to launch Portrait mode.

The videos confirm the rumors of the 90Hz Smooth Display on the Pixel 4 phones, with the screen being able to dynamically switch between 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rates, depending on the content being displayed. And it shows the same 6.23-inch 3040×1440 resolution display we've been seeing in recent leaks. None of the videos are in English but, between them all, there's unlikely to be any huge surprises when Google finally announces the Pixel 4 range next month.

That also includes seeing 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Once done, face unlock is stored on device only, and can be deleted whenever. Again, this could have something to do with the software on board not being final.

It's unclear what that third sensor might be, the one right at the top in the image above, but the simplest explanation is that we're looking at a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera, the likes of which we've seen on other devices. Otherwise, it won't be much longer of a wait now.
