Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: What’s New?
The smaller of the two Pixels comes with a 5.7” OLED display with 1080p+ resolution. The 4XL offers a 6.3″ OLED QHD display. The aspect ration in both phones remains 19:9. The active edge feature is back in Pixel smartphones as they can now be squeezed to perform certain actions.
Both the phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor from Qualcomm and would feature 6GB of RAM. The base model for both the devices would offer 64GB of storage space while another 128GB model is also available. The new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones have an aluminum frame along with a matte finish and come in new exciting color variants (Just Black, Oh So Orange, Clearly White).

A Detailed Look at the Google Pixel 4 Camera
The camera is the biggest highlight of these Pixel smartphones. 12.2 MP f/1.7 main, 16 MP f/2.4 telephoto and 8 MP selfie cameras are what you would be getting if you decide to go with either of the Pixel 4 smartphones! Google called the phone’s camera a ‘software-defined camera’, which basically means that while the lens and the sensors are important, the software is equally important!
The cameras even come with an astrophotography mode where you can easily capture the stars, planets, and galaxies using just your smartphone camera! SLR-styled bokehs will also be possible on the Pixel smartphones. The new and improved HDR+ mode will allow the users to increase detail in both, the dark as well as the light parts of the image.
Pixel 4 Now Comes in 3 Colors White, Black and a limited Edition Orange
