Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are Android smartphones from the Google Pixel product line, serving as successors to the Pixel 3. The phones were officially announced on October 15, 2019 and were released in the United States on October 24, 2019.
Google confirmed the device’s design in June 2019 after renders of it were leaked online. In the United States, Google Pixel 4 is the first Pixel phone to be offered for sale by all major wireless carriers at launch. Previous flagship Pixel models had launched as exclusives to Verizon and Google Fi; the midrange Pixel 3a was additionally available from Sprint and T-Mobile, but not AT&T, at its launch. As with all other Pixel releases, Google is offering unlocked U.S. versions through its website.
The Pixel 4 ships with Android 10 and Google Camera 7.1. The devices feature several features powered by their Pixel Neural Core (a successor to the Pixel Visual Core): in addition to its existing use for image processing, it is used by the new Recorder app (a voice recorder with live transcription), and the “new” Google Assistant, which contains enhancements to allow for increased client-side recognition of commands that are local to the device (rather than querying Google servers).
