If this rumored Pixel 5 price is real, are you buying?

If this rumored Pixel 5 price is real, are you buying?

The next Google Pixel is rumored to roll with a premium tier, a device series with an "Ultra" Pixel of sorts. Details revealed by a real-deal Google survey suggest they're looking into pricing a Google Pixel smartphone well above what they've charged in the past. While it's possible they could just be raising prices for no good reason, it's far more likely that they're considering a whole new sort of premium product.

Pixel 4a benchmarks hint it could save the day yet again

Pixel 4a benchmarks hint it could save the day yet again

It seems that history will be repeating itself this year. There have already been murmurs about how the Pixel 4's lackluster reception and sales are causing trouble inside Google. That may be a bit of a deja vu when the Pixel 3 duo also did so poorly last year. The Pixel's reputation was salvaged when it launched the Pixel 3a and 3a XL around this same time last year. It seems that the Pixel 4a (no 4a XL this time), could do the same, at least based on benchmarks of a pre-release device.

Pixel 4a release date change: Lower price, ideal launch

Today a leak tipped a changed date for a phone Google's not yet confirmed actually exists. The Google Pixel 4a, an essentials-only smartphone that'll likely act as the perfect jumping-off point for the Android 11 Beta launch - that's what's coming soon. The original assumed launch date (inside May, 2020), will now more likely be pushed to early June of 2020, right in time for the public Beta of Android 11.

Pixel 4 XL prototype shows the gray option that never was

Google often has rather interesting names for its Pixel phone color options and last year's generation was no different. Not everyone, however, might be fond of the Oh So Orange, Clearly White, and Just Black choices for the Pixel 4 XL but one can always slap on a skin or a case that matches one's tastes better. Still, there's something to be said about a phone that comes in a buyer's color of choice out of the box, and for lovers of Gray, this Pixel 4 XL prototype taunts them with what could have been.

The successful launch of the iPhone SE 2020 proved that there is a strong market for affordable yet powerful phones, especially during these times.

It seems that the upcoming Pixel 4a might be the last hope for Android phones and new renders reveal the details of its mix of new and old designs.

The Pixel 4a just recently got its most massive leak yet but while it had almost everything, it was also conspicuously missing one important thing. The larger Pixel 4a XL, the successor of the Pixel 3a XL was missing and has reportedly been scrapped. That may indeed be the case but, fortunately, someone on eBay claims to have a piece of that budget Pixel phone, teasing people on what they could have had if Google hadn't suddenly and mysteriously changed its mind.

Pixel 4a leak details all the specs – and what’s missing

The Google Pixel 4a leaks aren't stopping, and just because the midrange smartphone's launch was scuppered by I/O 2020 being canceled, it doesn't mean we don't know exactly what to expect at this point. A cheaper iteration on the Pixel 4, Google is hoping the Pixel 4a can do what its direct predecessor, the Pixel 3a managed, and carve out a well-respected spot in the midrange.

Pixel 4 Face Unlock can finally require eyes to be open in April update

Pixel 4 Face Unlock can finally require eyes to be open in April update

The Pixel 4 prided itself with its fancy new sensors hiding behind its thick forehead. In addition to hands-free gestures, the Pixel 4 also made face unlock the only secure biometrics option for the phone, throwing the fingerprint scanner out the window. Unfortunately, some found it to be actually less secure in one specific situation which, months after launch, Google is finally addressing with the April security patch for Pixel devices and Android in general.
