The new Pixel 4 phones could arrive with even thinner bevels

Google made us fall in love again with its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. And the truth is that when we give the term “successful” we do not say it lightly, since by many experts it was considered the best phone in 2018. But Google does not stop there and always goes a step further. That is why the technological giant is working on what will be Google’s Pixel 4 phone. And, although it has not yet been released, in this guide we collect all the information related to this new smartphone so you do not miss any detail and be aware of everything.

We hope to see the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL again this year, which means that we will have two different phone sizes. While the underlying technology has remained the same, the two Pixel phones have often seen slightly different screen designs, with the Pixel 3 XL with a notch and a Pixel 3 without it. Will Google merge the design of the two Pixel 4 phones this year, or will they be different once again?

While details about the specific screen layouts remain uncertain, the well-known OnLeaks agent has shown us what we can expect in terms of screen size and body.

If this is correct, it would mean that the Pixel 4 will have a bigger screen than the Pixel 3, but with a body just a little bigger. That would mean that Google would have reduced the frames of the Pixel 4, although it is unlikely that they are at the level of a phone like the Galaxy S10. On the other hand, the screen of the Pixel 4 XL seems to be more or less the same size as that of the Pixel 3 XL, although with a slightly higher and thinner body. Could this indicate the end of the notch-pretty ugly, otherwise-of the Pixel 3 XL? We’ll have to wait to find out.

DESIGN

What will the Pixel 4 be like? We already have an official image, thanks to the good availability of Google to show it. But what appears to be a Pixel 4 has also been seen in the real world. Everything indicates that the phone in the following photo – in the hands of an unidentified person – is Pixel 4, since it shares the same camera module design as the Google image.

It’s wrapped in a cloth case, the kind that Google has launched for previous Pixel phones. Apparently, the phone was in use on a train somewhere in London, and the photographer managed to see the front of the phone and stated that it had a large bezel on top and with two camera lenses, such as Pixel 3.

Before this, Google surprised everyone by tweeting an image of the next Google Pixel 4, showing a square protrusion on the back surrounding the camera. The company confirmed to Digital Trends that the image is true, so what can be said that this will be the Google Pixel 4. Regarding the cameras, it seems there will be two, which marks a change in the Pixel series, Traditionally faithful to the use of a single lens. And not only this: the image seems to show that the company is getting rid of the two-tone look in Pixel 4.

A previous rumor about Pixel 4 and that it has been maintained is that it could have a dual SIM support, according to a Google engineer who posted comments for the Android open source project. In those comments, the engineer noted that the device could have better support for dual SIM cards, which probably means that the device can connect to two cellular networks at once.

It’s not surprising to see Google add dual SIM support for its Pixel 4, but the way it works could be very different from previous Pixel phones. Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 have an eSIM and a physical SIM tray, but can not be used at the same time.

In Google Pixel 4, Google could include two slots for SIM cards, or space for two SIM cards in the same tray, although that will still require some software adjustments. Most likely, Google will include an eSIM or an electronic SIM that can connect to different networks through the software, at the top of the physical tray of the SIM.

Because Pixel 2 and 3 already have an eSIM and a physical SIM, it is possible that the function can be implemented as part of a software update that brings functionality to older phones. Google seems to be testing ways for Android to store dual SIM cards. There are two ways in which the company could do it. One of these forms is called “Dual SIM Dual Active”, in which both SIM cards can be used at any time. The other is called “Dual SIM Dual Standby”, and is where the second SIM is not always active, but can receive calls and text messages as say a consultor seo.

The dual SIM functionality is relatively important for many people, especially for those who travel a lot. With a dual SIM, users can keep their regular SIM installed on their device, while connecting to a second local network to use while they are in a different country.
