Google Pixel 4 XL launching on October 15 with SD855+


The leaked video surely confirms much of what we knew about the Pixel 4 already but still hypes up the level a notch higher. Now, a new leak has emerged online revealing the potential launch date of the new smartphones.

Well-known leaker Evan Blass tweeted an image of the Pixel 4 with a date prominently displayed on the screen: October 15th. Therefore, it's hardly a surprise to hear that Google might be aiming for an October 15th event date.

We also get a look at the display specs for the phone, and the leaked image shows that the phone comes with a 6.23-inch display, instead of the rumoured 6.3-inch. The image in question corroborates everything previously reported such as the larger upper bezel that's home to a variety of sensor, the impressively slim chin, and the thin side bezels. This might be because of the sensors embedded on the upcoming smartphone. A new leak now gives out more information about the Pixel 4's motion gestures facilitated by the Project Soli radar.

The video also showed some glimpses of new Google's Night Sight feature, which is now improved. A new video via This in Tech Today changes all that and shows the actual Settings menu on a Pixel 4 unit used to set up so-called Quick Gestures. Several details of the highly anticipated Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have been leaked over the past two weeks.

We can see Quick Gestures for skipping songs by waving the hand left or right and another one for silencing interruptions like calls or alarms. This time, it's the alleged hardware specification of the Pixel 4 XL. So, if this information does turn out to be true, then it falls perfectly in line with the October time-frame during which Google usually announces its flagship Pixel smartphones.
