Google Pixel 4, which can be also titled as one of the most leaked phones of 2019 is officially here. While there are some new changes and features, there is nothing new in this phone that makes it stand out compared to some of the latest flagship phones. To learn how this phone competes with the rest of its competition and the Google Pixel 4 South Africa price, continue reading.
It seems Google is in no rush to get rid of the bezels just yet as the new Google Pixel 4 showed up with not so thin bezels on top and bottom of the 5.7-inch display. The display is also surprisingly small considering most of the phones are aiming for a 6-inch screen nowadays. It’s covering 79.8% of the body and shows 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio and 444ppi of pixel density. What makes this display different is it’s 90Hz refresh rate which is not something you will get in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or Apple iPhone 11. This makes the display slightly smoother and faster. As for the design, it’s definitely one of the weakest part of the phone compared to most of the other flagship phones. There is a big square shaped camera bump on the back like the new iPhones but this one only includes two cameras instead of three. Right after the Google Pixel 4 release date South Africa, it can be found in three different colors: Oh So Orange, Just Black and Clearly White.
This is the first time Google went for a dual camera setup and the Google Pixel 4 comes with a 45mm 16-megapixel telephoto lens along with the standard 28mm 12.2-megapixel sensor. According to Google, users can expect studio like photos without a studio and can capture rich detail in the dark without using the flash. Google’s Night Sight feature was quite popular and it seems they doubled down on it in this new phone. The portrait mode also works better now thanks to the new telephoto sensor. There is a new astrophotography mode for people who are interested to take pictures of galaxies and stars but requires the phone to be fully stable to take advantage of this feature. We will be able to find out how this camera competes with the likes of iPhone 11 Pro Max and Huawei Mate 30 Pro after the Google Pixel 4 release date South Africa. However, these are not in the same price range as the Google Pixel 4 South Africa price. As for the front camera, there is an 8-megapixel one paired with a TOF 3D camera.
Most of the Google phones usually includes the latest hardware and the Google Pixel 4 is no different. It’s packing the latest Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon 855 7nm octa-core processor under the hood paired with 6GB of RAM. Google is completely depending on their version of Apple’s Face ID feature as there is no fingerprint scanner included on the phone. There are some new Motion Sensor feature along with new Android 10 voice assistant features. The battery of this phone is slightly smaller than the Google Pixel 3, a 2800mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. It will be interesting to see how it performs in real life as the new phone comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display that can make things difficult for its battery. Some of the other noteworthy features are: Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 64/128GB of built-in storage, stereo speakers, Face ID, USB Power delievery 2.0 and Qi wireless charging support.
The Google Pixel 4’s starting price is R 10800 which makes it slightly cheaper than most of the high-end phones with similar specs. As for the Google Pixel 4 release date South Africa, it will be available in multiple countries around the world on October 24, 2019.
