Another retailer accidentally posts its Pixel 4 product page

Another retailer accidentally posts its Pixel 4 product page
The other day, Best Buy Canada posted its Pixel 4 pre-order pages even though the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL won't be officially unveiled until tomorrow. While Best Buy eventually took down the page, it didn't do it until screenshots were taken and images disseminated. Today, the U.K.'s Carphone Warehouse joined the "oops" club by posting its Pixel 4 product pages. The pages include a place to register your interest in the new handsets; fill it in, submit it and the retailer will email you information once the new phones are available for pre-order and purchase.

One of the pages mentions the next generation of Night Sight. This is the feature that allows users to snap viewable photographs in dark and low-light conditions. Night Sight 2.0 will add a longer exposure time for astrophotography. The latter, by definition, includes the process of snapping photos of the night sky. As one of the product pages states, "Night Sight is now faster and easier to use. It can even take photos of the Milky Way."

The latest rumor calls for the Pixel 4 line to be priced at $799 and up


One of the pages shows the specs of both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (and the Just Black, Clearly White and Oh So Orange color options). It also lists the specs for the mid-range Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Interestingly, the specs listing spotted on Best Buy Canada compared the new phones with last year's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.


While the combination of leaks and Google's own confirmations has left very little information unknown, pricing of the new models has yet to be nailed down. While one rumor had the 64GB Pixel 4 XL priced at a hefty $999, the latest speculation calls for that phone to have a more reasonable $899 price tag while the 64GB Pixel 4 will cost you $799.  The 128GB version of the latter could set you back $899 while the 128GB Pixel 4 XL would be tagged at $999.

The Pixel 4 series will feature Motion Sense, which uses the radar-based Soli chip that allows users to skip through songs or other streaming content, dismiss alarms/timers and silence phone calls by waving their hand above the display. Face unlock will use secure facial recognition to unlock the new devices and will also verify mobile payments made through Google Pay. The 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch AMOLED displays on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL respectively will both refresh at 90Hz. This is 50% faster than the rate found on traditional smartphones and will result in smoother scrolling and more fluid animation on video games. Another new feature, Ambient EQ, automatically adjusts the white balance of the display based on ambient lighting.

Both phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, and for the first time on any Pixel handset, the new models will sport 6GB of memory along with 64GB or 128GB of storage. Another Pixel first will be seen inside the square camera module in the upper left corner of the rear panel-a second camera. While once again the latest Pixel handset will feature a 12.2MP primary camera, this year's version has a slightly wider aperture at f/1.6 to allow more light to enter the lens. The new second camera will weigh in at 16MP and feature telephoto capabilities.

The Pixel 4 will carry a 2800mAh battery while the larger Pixel 4 XL will be equipped with a 3700mAh capacity battery. A leaked retail box belonging to the Just Black Pixel 4 reveals that an 18W charging brick will be included in the box.

The fun and festivities start at 10 am EDT (7 am PDT) tomorrow, October 15th. You can watch all the excitement live streamed right here. Don't forget to keep checking in throughout the day for our coverage and analysis of the Made by Google event.

More hype for the phone that hardly anyone cares about. Tech fanboys care and almost everyone else ignores this bezel monster.

Agreed. 90hz on 2800 battery? Companies are announcing 4000-5000 batteries in smaller chassis - 2800 is an utter joke. And 64GB is butned so quick and no microSD. But almost as bad.. is it really that brutally hard to give people wireless charging in 2019? People need to get over the hype of this phone man it's laughable. But thank God it comes in a nifty coral color

Totally agree. Batteries for both models are too small, built in storage is too small not to have expandable storage, no fingerprint sensor, and they will be priced too high and don’t bring enough to the table those prices. Google has to realize that they can’t compete with top tier Android OEM’s and Apple with pricing....that’s a losing strategy for Google. They need to undercut the competition by a large margin price wise in order to sell units in meaningful numbers. Flagship Pixels are all hype and no substance, except for the camera, and even that isn’t the best anymore.

If they have a great promo at launch I’ll pick one up. I have my Pixel 2xl I would trade in for this phone. I just finally traded in my 7 plus for the iPhone 11 pro Max, since I got $650 off it, and I’ll admit it’s a good phone but I miss my fingerprint sensor. Hopefully Google and Verizon have something great for preorders.

Let's agree to disagree it's not leak its deliberate hype. Prices ridiculous so the the base storage. Eat my toe.

I'm just here waiting for the Pixel 4A. The 3A has served me well and I don't think I'll be giving it up for the 4 simply because I want a fingerprint scanner and I still have a headphone jack. I do wish the memory was higher to at least 128gb. Actually the 4A should be at least 128gb since the Nokia 7.2 has upped the memory in it while still also having expandable storage.
