Google Pixel 4 and 4XL Codenames Revealed!

Google Pixel 4 and 4XL Codenames Revealed!

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL case renders have revealed two important aspects of both smartphones. On the other hand, the XL model is said to get a 6-inch display with a similar resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels.

Rumours of Google's mid-range smartphone efforts have been circulating for quite some time, but a leak from the company's own store earlier this month confirms that the Pixel 3a series is on its way. The leaked cases gives an idea about the design of both the smartphones.

In terms of power, the Pixel 3a is said to be powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset - this is the same chipset that we have seen in smartphones like the Xiaomi Mi A2, Realme 2 Pro and more. If you clearly look at the top of the device, you can find 3.5mm headphone jack.

Over the past few weeks, we have been surrounded with leaks and rumors surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL mid-range phones, and now details about the flagship Pixel 4 series have also surfaced.


Google launched the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones previous year. Another key difference is the front façade, with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL both sporting a single front camera, compared to the dual-front facing cameras on the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. Pixel 3a XL bears the same camera units from 3a. "Google invested a variety of advertising cash throughout Q4 2018 leading to strong sales of the Google Pixel 3 lineup".

The Pixel XL sports a Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and a 5.5-inch 1440p OLED.

Surprisingly, the XL Phone is codenamed "flame", but usually, the codenames of the devices were named after marine animals. This still leaves up Needlefish unexplained, but this mystery device probably runs Android as well and should show up further down the road.

Besides, back in January this year, a Google device was spotted with Coral label on Geekbench, which is said to be Google Pixel 4. There is always a chance that the company could change the codenames anytime, though it would be kinda pointless.
