Google Pixel 4 family was expected to come with one of the most 2019 features on flagships, a display with a 90Hz refresh rate. While the pixel density race has slowed, device manufacturers have looked for other ways to make their devices nicer to use. Notches, holes, pop-ups, HDR support, better-tuned OLED displays and so on. With its slightly thick top bezels, Google isn’t adopting a bezel-less display just yet, but it’s going for a high refresh rate on its devices. This would make navigating the user interface that much smoother. iPad Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro users can attest to this.
The folks over at XDA Developers have spotted an Android 10 code commit confirming the 90Hz refresh rate referring to P19 (Pixel 2019 ) devices. Barring the Pixel 3a, Google’s Pixel 4 is its only incoming 2019 models. So this does confirm the presence of that feature.
Google will be bringing 6GB of RAM, a 1440p display and a second telephoto lens camera among other new hardware features.
The firm is expected to launch the Pixel 4 and 4 Xl this October, They’ll be its second Pixel release this year alongside the 3a series. In a year of powerful ‘budget’ phones and super-flashy flagships, it’ll be interesting to see the market response to the Pixel 4 family upon launch.
