Google Pixel 4 launch is just a day away, and the leaks refuse to stop. The phone has been spotted on Best Buy Canada revealing specifications, design, and more. The new Google phone's retail box has also been leaked revealing internal accessories inside the box. The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, according to the Canada listing, come with Google Camera 7.1, 90Hz display, Snapdragon 855 SoC, and a feature called Quick Gestures.
9to5Google spotted the Best Buy Canada listing, which has now been removed. The pre-order listing confirmed that the phone will include Google Camera 7.1 that comes with a cleaner interface and a ‘point-and-shoot' feature. There's also something called as Quick Gestures that lets you control the phone without touching it - probably the Project Solo based air gestures that have been confirmed and leaked multiple times. The Pixel 4 series will also integrate the next-gen Google Assistant as well.
The listing leaked full specifications as well, and the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are listed to pack dual rear cameras - with 12-megapixel and 16-megapixel sensors, and 4K video resolution support. The phones are listed to pack 8-megapixel front cameras with 1080p video resolution support. Both the phones are powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. They will support Face Unlock as well.
The Pixel 4 is listed to sport a 5.7-inch full-HD+ OLED Smooth display, while the Pixel 4 XL is listed to feature a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ OLED display. The Pixel 4 packs a 2,700mAh battery and the Pixel 4 XL packs a 3,700mAh battery. The renders attached to the listing suggests thinner bezels than predecessor and a square-shaped camera module at the back. The Canadian retailer listed the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in Just Black and Clearly White colour options.
Separately, the Pixel 4 Just Black retail box photos were leaked on Reddit, and the box has the photos of the phone on the front and back. Inside the box, Google adds an18W USB Type-C power adapter, charging cable, and Quick Switch Adapter.

While the Canadian listing didn't show the ‘Oh So Orange' variant, the new colour option was spotted in the hands of Awkwafina. The Pixel 4 Oh So Orange variant was spotted on Ali Wong's Instagram, as she posted a photo of Awkwafina and her, taking a selfie. The photo was posted on Wong's story, which has now expired. It was spotted by 9to5Google.
A user on Reddit has leaked a small video of the Soli-powered Motion Sense feature in action. Using air gestures, this video shows how a simple swipe on the Pixel 4 XL changes the songs on Spotify easily. 9to5Google also reports that the Pixel 4 XL Verizon and Sprint models will be priced at $999 (roughly Rs. 71,000). The report cites Best Buy employee as source, and claims that this may be the price of the 64GB option. This means that the price will be increased by $100 as compared to the previous variant. The smaller Pixel 4 should be priced lower than $999. The report also suggests that the Nest Mini will launch alongside, and it will be priced at $49.99 (roughly Rs. 3,500).
Lastly, a new leak has detailed the price of the Nest Wi-Fi and Nest Hub Max as well. Citing a Canadian retailer, 9to5Google reports that the retailer has referenced the codename Mistral and prices the 1-pack at CAD 229 (roughly Rs. 12,300). A two-pack is priced at CAD 349 (roughly Rs. 18,700) and the three-pack is priced at CAD 459 (roughly Rs. 24,700). The Canadian retailer also references ‘Newman' as the Nest Hub Max. It is listed in Charcoal and Chalk, and will be priced in Canada at CAD 299 (roughly Rs. 16,000).
An earlier report by Nikkei Asian Review also suggested that Google is working on a Pixel 4 5G variant as well, and will announce it on October 15. This phone is still in test production and should launch in spring next year, alongside the release on the budget Pixel series, the report states. This would put Google ahead of Apple, who is reported to bring 5G to its new iPhones in the fall of 2020.
The Pixel 4 series launch event will begin at 7.30pm IST tomorrow.
