Despite the official announcement on Tuesday, Best Buy in Canada has already listed the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL for pre-order. The special product page notes key features and specifications, while allowing customers to deposit.
The official marketing copy for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL strongly emphasizes that this is a Google phone:
Built around the Google user software you know and love, the Pixel 4 is a Google-made phone.
There are four "pixel perfect" dots. Starting with the camera, Google is reviewing "Pixel 4 software" to help you shoot "similar to a studio anywhere" in image and shooting mode. The redesigned Google Camera 7.1 with a cleaner interface is displayed.
There is nothing new to learn and no editing is needed. Just point out what you want to capture, and your Pixel will help you have a fantastic shot every time.
The next photo tag suggests unlimited storage of "original quality" on Google Photos, but unusual shows a pixel 3a that only offers "high quality" compressed backups not in full resolution.
Meanwhile, Soli Quick Gestures are considered "a new way to control your phone".
Pixel 4 has quick gestures, allowing you to do things without touching the phone. Which is actually pretty great when you cook or enjoy your favorite taco.
The last item is Assistant, which is available via Active Edge or Google Hot Keyword. There is no explicit reference to the Next Generation Assistant, though the functionality calls for: "Send texts, get directions, and even plan the day, all from the palm of your hand."
The full specifications are listed by direct comparison with the Google Pixel 3 XL. Dual rear cameras come in 12 and 16MP with 4K video recording, while there's an 8 MP front-facing factor of 1080p. The 90Hz "Smooth Display" is available on a 5.7-inch Full HD + or 6.3-inch Quad HD + OLED. There is a difference of 900 mAh between 2,800 mAh pixels 4 and 3,700 mAh 4 XL. The Snapdragon 855 is also certified with 6 GB of RAM, though only 64 GB of pre-order capacity is available. It should also be available in 128 GB.
This expiration of Best Buy's Pixel 4 specifications is likely to be removed, but customers this evening are able to deposit a $ 50 CAD deposit to book a local store from six different carriers. The Canadian retailer only offers black and clear white, but not oh so orange. While the full price is not listed here, details have been leaked previously.
