Google Pixel 4 to launch ‘next month’ with a camera that’s even BETTER than the iPhone 11
GOOGLE’S latest smartphone is just a few weeks away, according to the latest leaks.
Rumours suggest the Google Pixel 4 is poised to earn the title of ‘iPhone killer’ with a camera that puts Apple’s new handset to shame.
The £800 iPhone 11, unveiled Tuesday, comes with a dual rear camera system.
It boasts 12-megapixel and 16-megapixel lenses that give buyers the ability to shoot video in 4K, as well as a new Night Mode that uses AI to help you take snaps in the dark.
A single front-facing cameras features a new “slow-mo selfie” tool that lets you take super slow video of your mug.
If recent rumours prove true, Google’s Pixel 4 – out October 14, according to reliable leaker Evan Blass – could take Apple’s gizmo to the cleaners.
Reports suggest it will also come with two rear cameras.
The pair will feature 12-megapixel and 16-megapixel lenses – a jump up from the iPhone – and also boast a new mode to help you take photos in the dark.
No ultrawide lens like the iPhone, but it’ll reportedly come with an 8x telephoto zoom to help you take clear shots of objects in the far distance.
On top of this, the Pixel 4 will apparently come with two front facing cameras, trumping the single snapper on the iPhone 11.
A rumoured “Motion Mode” will help Pixel 4 fans capture “action shots” while they’re moving around or being jostled.
Google hasn’t officially announced the Pixel 4 yet, let alone any specs, so take these rumours with a healthy pinch of salt.
However, if they prove true, Apple could see its iPhone 11 – which it is largely selling on its camera – trumped within weeks of launch.
The iPhone 11 comes out September 20, just over three weeks before the rumoured Pixel 4 launch.
As well as a top-end camera system, Apple’s new handset comes with an upgraded A 13 computer chip that should help apps load faster.
Apple is releasing the phone for around £796, with pre-orders opening Friday at 1pm BST. The phone ships September 20.
Earlier this year, the handset’s rear design was leaked online – prompting Google to publicly unveil the back of the device itself.
That means an official image of the Google Pixel 4’s rear end is already circulating online.
The Pixel 4 is expected to launch in October and come loaded with Android Q, Google’s latest mobile software.
It’s rumoured to come with a rapid 90hz display – much like the super fast OnePlus 7 Pro.
Last month, Google confirmed that its upcoming Pixel 4 smartphone will have face-unlocking and ‘Motion Sense’ gesture controls.
The latter will let owners control their smartphone simply by waving their hands in front of the screen.
In a video titled ‘Don’t hold the phone’, Google revealed how a simple wave could move between apps.
And similar gestures would allow a Pixel 4 owner to skip songs or pause music.
However, Google hasn’t revealed the full range of gestures that will be available.
It’s also not clear if other people will be able to control your smartphone using their own hand gestures.
Google also unveiled another feature for the Google Pixel 4: Face unlock.
This will use some kind of sensor to verify your identity by scanning your face.
It’s similar to the Face ID system available in recent Apple smartphones, including the iPhone XR and iPhone XS.
Many Android rivals have produced rip-off versions that have been far slower – or much less secure.
