Google Pixel 4: The Accidentally Revealed Smartphone Hints Design Inspiration From Samsung Galaxy S10?

Must Read

Google might have just given us a glimpse of Pixel 4, the upcoming Pixel smartphone, unintentionally during the company’s ongoing Google I/O 2019 keynote.

Google’s Assistant was one of the highlights of the show, with the company finding a way not only to reduce the size of the voice recognition software but make it all happen on-device. The company demonstrated how the Assistant was made to deal with voice commands successively. However, after the demonstration was over, the company announced through a slide that they were going to include the features in a new pixel phone later that year.

This begs the question, which device were they using while demonstrating the same during I/O’s keynote?

Google Not Giving Out the Phone’s Design, Yet

During the presentation, A Googler named Meggie used a prototype of a Pixel phone to demo the Google Assistant. She had in her hand the required prototype, which was covered in certain protective gear. The protective gear must be there to hide the design of the new Pixel phones from the world. But from the demonstration, it is indeed possible to deduce a few of the features of the new Pixel smartphone.

One of the most glaring ones is the front-facing camera of the device. While it is clear that there is at least one front-facing camera in the device, it is most probably a hold-punch design, much like that of the Samsung Galaxy S10. The camera is most probably placed on the left side of the screen in the demonstration. This makes it clear that the device used to show the demo is not any of those Pixel phones available for the consumers in the market.

Google looking at Samsung for design inspiration?

From the looks of it, the new Pixel is going to use the same hole-punch design as that of the Galaxy S10. The mere fact that the Pixel is going to use designs similar to one previously used by Samsung is surprising.

A recent report threw light on the fact that almost 51% of smartphone users who bought Google Pixel 3 in Q4 2018 migrated from Samsung. But this doesn’t prove that Google is blatantly copying Samsung’s design since a lot of other companies have been using the same design.

But that being said, the Pixel phones aren’t doing great in the market right now either. It is facing the same problem as that of Apple. Its devices are proving to be too expensive for consumers, even after discounts. Therefore, the next Pixel device, or call it Pixel 4, is going to prove to be crucial for the success of Google in the smartphone market.

Specifications of Pixel 4

From the looks of it, the smartphone is supposedly using a Snapdragon 855 processor which is powering the features of the new phone along with Google Assistant. While the other possible features of the smartphone aren’t released or leaked yet, we do know that Google is looking at a variety of designs to implement. We might even witness a new Pixel banded chip to use alongside the Snapdragon 855 processor. Besides, Google Pixel 4 will also be a 5G enabled as the fight to dominate the 5G smartphone market has already begun. But at this point in time, there is nothing more concrete and mostly all the specs are based on speculations. Therefore, we have to wait and see and hope that Google does get it right with the upcoming Pixel 4.
