Qualcomm President accidentally confirms no Snapdragon 855+ for Pixel 4 series

Qualcomm President accidentally confirms no Snapdragon 855+ for Pixel 4 series
The Google Pixel 4 is arguably the most leaked phone ever. It’s been the subject of numerous hands-on videos over the course of the past few months in addition to camera comparisons, feature reports, and pricing rumors. Now, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon has joined in on the fun by prematurely confirming the Pixel 4’s chipset.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, Amon congratulated (via Antonio Sabán) Google on “the announcement of their beautiful, new Pixel 4 phones powered by Snapdragon 855.” He also took the time to thank the internet giant for its “great partnership” with the chipset designer. 

As was to be expected, the tweet in question has already been deleted in an effort to minimize its impact ahead of today’s announcement. But as per usual, followers of the executive and fellow Twitter users were quick to screenshot the evidence before it disappeared. 

Unfortunately for us, Amon’s short tweet doesn’t really confirm anything new but it does, at least, corroborate the hundreds of leaks that precede it. Reports suggest the flagship chipset will be accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, although a version with 128GB is to be expected. 

The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are expected to be available for pre-order immediately after today’s introduction event. Shipments will probably commence on Friday, October 25, and pricing should start at $799 for the Pixel 4 and $899 for the XL-branded model.

I just don’t think Google gets it when it comes to flagships, IMO. Taking away things the FPS, offering 64 gigs of ROM and no expandable storage option, having small batteries for high resolution, 90hz screens and hardware that’s more on the “meh” side at these rumored prices is not going to get these things moving out of the door in meaningful numbers, even with the air gestures that we’ve already seen before with LG. This seems like more hype than substance. Google needs to undercut its competitors price wise. Honestly, I think people are going to be more exited if/when Google announces a successor to the Pixel 3A line, which aren’t on par with flagships, but are good enough midrange offerings that sell well for Google while offering a Stock Android experience for much less than its overly expensive older siblings.

Only XL is QHD, with 3700mAh. Something like s10+. P4 has 1080p and 5,7" 19:9 is smaller than 5.5" 16:9.

What are you talking about? The S10+ has a 4100mah battery. A better example would've been your beloved Sony Xperia 1, 4k screen with 3330mah battery.

He should’ve compared it to the Note 10. The Note 10 has a 6.4 inch screen with a 3500 mAh battery.

Hi PA team..... Title says 855+ instead of 855.
