Google launched the successor to the Pixel 3A this week, the Pixel 4a, and it was an instant hit! Great specs for the asking price of of only $349, of course it would be!
Now if the Pixel 4A is not your thing, and you’re looking for more of flagship experience, you might still wait on the Pixel 5 to arrive.
Looks like the team over at Google France posted the regular information that’s parts of the news release for the Pixel 4A launch but it looks like they added just a bit more. Toward the tail end of the release they added this portion to the release “Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available for pre-order from October 8, 2020.”
That post is no longer available on their website, but can still be viewed through a cached version of the site. This launch date does line up with Google’s usual dates for launch and can be considered as the actual launch date for pre-order for the Pixel 4A 5G and the Pixel 5
What do you think? Are you going to get the Pixel 5? Tell us below!
Have you been thinking about those renders of the Galaxy S20 that have been floating around and just thought, you know what, I don’t know if its real? Think again. XDA-Developers just got shared with the internet pictures of the new Galaxy S20. When taking a look at the leaked images, you can see the boot up screen showing off the new name (S20) also showing off that this is the 5G version of it. Check out these leaked image of the front:
As you can see, this is a pretty clean camera cut hole here! The screen to body ratio here is also amazing as well! Another cool thing is that it looks like Samsung finally gave up in trying to force Bixby down our throats and took the button away.
This phone is looking pretty hot, are you going to get the new Samsung if it looks like this?
With the release of the Pixel 4 this past October, many people were left wanting some more and different from Google. Before the Pixel 4 was announced, there were many renders that had many (including myself), for the new Pixel 4. Here is one of the leaks we all wished was the actual Pixel:
Everyone was super excited after seeing this render, since this design language is actually really nice. But once the Pixel 4 was actually released, it did not look as good as some of the renders showed. But maybe there is hope!
Thanks to 91Mobiles which published some renders based off of the information from Onleaks, this is what the Pixel 4A is going to look like when it comes to the market:
From the looks of it, it looks like Google will be shrinking the bezels on the display, which means maybe no Soli, and going with the punch-hole display that Samsung went with on their Galaxy S10 series. The back of the render also has the fingerprint scanner, which means more than likely no Soli on board. Taking a look at this though, Google should’ve used this design for the Pixel 4 and skipped on Soli, because this looks so much better!
Based off of the report of Onleaks, the Pixel 4A is also going to carry a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. If you ask me, the 4A is actually looking more attractive than the 4 right now. Here is a video of the render below:
Other specs that the Pixel 4A is said to have are a 5.8″ inch screen and speakers fire out of the bottom. The Pixel 4A is set to be released around Google IO time, which is May 2020. We can’t wait to see more leaks of the Pixel 4A!
Out of the many features that the Pixel 4 has to offer, one of the most popular features is the “Smooth” 90Hz display that Google now offers on both of their flagship devices. We began to see phones with smoother displays beginning with Razer Phone, and then became main stream when it hit the iPad Pro. More mainstream phones began to carry higher refresh rate screens as of recent, with the OnePlus 7 Pro being one of the most recent Android phones to carry that type of screen.
Google knew this would be something that people wanted on their phones, so they added it to their new Pixel 4. Google has made many surprising decisions when it comes to the Pixel 4, like the battery size and no wide camera, and it looks like the display has another surprise as well! Kellen over at Droid-Life.net, has been noticing while using his Pixel 4, the screen drops from 90Hz back to 60Hz when using the phone under 75% brightness.
This isn’t great for the Pixel 4 at all, since the older OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t with its display no matter what level of brightness you have it on, which proves that it is not a hardware limitation. Hopefully Google is able to fix this through a Software Update, being that Google doesn’t need any more negative slack for their Pixel 4. For now, check to see if when you Force 90Hz through developer settings, it doesn’t drop.
As you all might already know, Fortnite has taken gaming by storm and changed the way many games are being played and produced nowadays. Fortnite really began to get popular at the end of the Summer in 2017, and has made little cosmetic changes to its game to keep players enticed. As many people might say, if it ain’t broke, DON’T fix it!
Now when it comes to small cosmetic changes to the game, Epic Games has change things like points of interests, skins and guns. The most recent season of Fortnite, Season X, has had many points of interest change. We saw Tilted Towers go to Neo Tilted, to Tilted Town and now Gotham City.
With Season X come to an end, there has been a lot of speculation that Epic would be bringing a new map to Fortnite, and it looks like the App Store of Italy has confirmed that for us. If you take a look at the image above, you can see that it shows an image of three characters overlooking a landscape, and the top says “Fortnite Capitolo 2”, which translates to Fornite Chapter 2. When taking a look at the image, it looks nothing like what is available on the current map, which leads us to believe that a new map is definitely coming.
Do you think that a new map for Fortnite would get everyone engaged again? Leave your comments below and let us know what you think!
It looks like Google will finally be able to be available on all four major carriers in the U.S.! Ever since the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL were made available on Sprint and T-Mobile, we’ve known that Verizon’s exclusivity deal for the Pixel phones is finally over. And now it looks like AT&T wants to join in on the Pixel fun!
According to Phone Arena who got an email provided to them with this information, AT&T store managers were contacted to give their employees a chance to “seed” (test the device and represent it in store) the Pixel. If this is true, this means that Google will finally have a launch year where all four major carriers carry their device and can get their device exposed to more people.
Do you think the Google Pixel 4 being available now at AT&T will help with Pixel sales? Leave your comments below and tell us if you’ll be getting the Pixel 4 on AT&T!
