It is finally here. The day fans like myself have been waiting for since ….well last year at this time. Today we finally (officially) have the Pixel 4 available for order. Officially because like last year we knew everything about the phone for months now. But now that it is here officially let’s talk about what we have.
So customers can purchase the phone in either black, white, or creamsicle (aka orange). And can either go with the 5.7 inch Full HD display with a 2800 mAh battery or get the 6.3 inch Quad HD display with a 3700 mAh battery. Both will come with 6GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 2 rear cameras (standard and telephoto), wireless charging, and either 64 or 128 GB of non-expandable internal storage.
As far as features it will have the Soli Radar chip that will be able to change music, silence alarms, and silence calls all by reading the gesture of your hand wave. It will also help with the other feature with is the face unlock, sensing gesture movement to wake the phone and activate the face sensors before you even move the phone to your face.
To make the phone feel smoother, it will come with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Using software to adjust when to provide that awesome refresh rate for providing a gorgeous looking display, and when to turn it down to conserve battery. It will also have wireless charging, water resistance, Pixel theme app, and more. And all this will be available at $799 for the Pixel 4 64 GB model, $899 for both the Pixel 4 128 GB model and the Pixel 4 XL 64 GB model, and lastly $999 for the Pixel 4XL 128 GB model.
Overall Google did not present us with anything we did not already know except for the fact that it will be available for all major US wireless carriers (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, & Google Fi). And the actual price, which I will admit is better than the rumors were heading, but still a little high.
Still, I was so excited that I already pre-ordered the unlocked Pixel 4 XL 128 GB model in black. I had planned on getting white but didn’t want to wait. Plus I am throwing a case on it anyway.
Overall Google managed to at least keep the price to a point that is worth buying. Especially the Pixel 4. Now it is just a matter of seeing if Google can finally have a clean launch and produce a phone free of major issues.
