Google will release Pixel 4 on AT&T, widening Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint's Pixel line availability

Google will release Pixel 4 on AT&T, widening Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint's Pixel line availability
Google may be prepping a veritable onslaught of its phones on US carriers this year, as we got tipped that the Pixel 4 will be released on AT&T for the first time. The Pixel 3 had the widest availability of any Google phone before it, and still was not present in AT&T's portfolio.

Starting this year, however, America's largest carrier will be hugging the best computational photography algorithms with its warm, heartening embrace, it seems.

Pixel 4 release on AT&T

While T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint are the usual suspects when it comes to Pixel phone releases, AT&T store managers have been getting emails to provide employees who would be carrying the Pixel 4 as a "seed" device.

The practice is typical for big brands and popular phones so that each store has someone who will be using the gear as a daily driver and can answer questions or troubleshoot problems with more in-depth knowledge. 

Needless to say, the employee proposed can't moonlight as an "Apple Master" or a "Samsung Pro" at the same time, or can't even have been one of those brainwashed individuals, and should be devoting themselves solely to Google's Pixel line. 

We kid, but the arrival of the Pixel 4 on AT&T is kind of a big news, and a stepping news for Google in combating one of the biggest disadvantages of the Pixel line - its fairly narrow US and global availability. We can't wait to pit the camera of this phone against the Samsung and Apple juggernauts in AT&T's portfolio.

Thanks for the tip!

Haven't all Pixel releases been times exclusives though? I thought T-Mobile only got the Pixel family with the launch of the Pixel 3a even though it was compatible on the carrier's network.

From what I remember the pixel line was a Verizon exclusive until the 3a and 3a xl came out then they opened to Sprint & T-Mobile

Very confusing. My friends has had every Pixel phone to date, not counting 3a, that not an upgrade, all on the AT&T network. Bought phone unlocked through Google. So are we just stating that the Pixel Phones will be sold in AT&T stores now...

2800mah battery? Is that a typo? Please tell me that 2 is supposed to be a 3

lets hope so :| Last years Pixel 3 had a lack luster 2915mah. So with LESS capacity in the Pixel 4 (2800) + Soli + 90Hz, may god help us all.. You could say that Android 10 will 'optimize' better battery but thats what they said last year, and the year prior, and the year before that.

Except those stats are the first that show in Google with Wikipedia as the source.

Wikipedia is not the source, but the operational and financial reports from the two providers IS. Wikipedia is an aggregation site for information, not science fiction. But you can google it for yourself.

A little while ago I went into an AT&T store to check out the note 10+ because I am considering upgrading and I asked the store clerk that was helping me if the pixel 4 was going to be carried and he said no. But now this news has been released, I will wait for the pixel 4 to be released before making a decision.
