Google has announced the date of its highly anticipated hardware event.

Set  for October 15th in New York, the tech giant will reveal intricate details of its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL – which are set to take on Apple’s latest iPhone 11. 

Rumors have also suggested that Google could announce other devices, including new Google Home Speakers and a Pixelbook 2.

In the launch event invitation, Googled said ‘Come see a few new things Made by Google’, which has created a buzz in the tech world around what the search giant could have in- store – in terms of new gadgets

PIXEL 4 FEATURES

Google posted cropped renders of two  sleek black devices to its Twitter page.

The images appear to show a square module on the back of the phone.  

May contain a small bezel on the display, which could house front facing cameras. 

Many have predicted that Google’s newest Pixel will rely on facial recognition software for unlocking the device, as well as added security. 

 It is also said to recognize hand gestures as commands.

In the launch event invitation, Google said ‘Come see a few new things Made by Google’, which has created a buzz in the tech world around what the search giant showcase at the event. 

But one thing is for sure – the public will get a look at the firm’s family of Pixel 4 smartphones.

In June, Google shared a post on the search giant’s official Twitter account, Google shared cropped renders of two sleek black devices, along with a reference to the recent Pixel 4 leaks.

Notably, the images appear to show a square module on the back of the phone that is rumored by PriceBaba to contain three rear-facing camera lenses.

‘Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go!,’ Google said in a tweet. ‘Wait ’til you see what it can do.’ 

A video by the YouTube channel Unbox Therapy included a device the user claimed to be a mock-up of the Pixel 4. 

Leaked mock-ups initially sent out to case manufacturers seem to corroborate the module in the back of of the new Pixel 4 and also provide evidence that the phone may contain a small bezel on the display.

This bezel will likely be used to house advanced technology, including more front-facing cameras. 

Many have predicted that Google’s newest Pixel will rely on facial recognition software for unlocking the device, as well as added security.  

As a result, the next-generation device will reportedly omit the rear-mounted fingerprint detector for locking and unlocking the phone – a feature that was included in the Pixel 3.

Other leaks have provided little evidence of a rumor that circulated over the summer about Google’s inclusion of a new ‘Project Soli’ chip.

According to 9to5Google, Google is considering equipping its new phone with the chip which, using radar technology, would allow users to control their device using hand gestures.  

It’s unclear exactly how that technology would be integrated into phones. 

Users can safely assume that the Pixel 4 will run on Android Q, Google’s latest mobile operating system, which recently released its fourth of six total betas, inching it closer to an official release. 

If the new Pixel 4 images look slightly familiar, that’s because the design, particularly a back module containing multiple lenses, are substantially similar to leaked images of the iPhone 11.

A three or four-camera system is speculated to be featured in the iPhone 11 as well as the next models of Apple’s iPhone XR, the XR2. All of the devices are rumored to come equipped with the company’s high-end OLED displays.  

It’s unclear what the ultimate cost of the Pixel 4 will be, but prices are likely to be significantly higher than the Pixel 3.
