Last week, Google did one thing wholly un-Googley: It officially teased the Pixel 4, the subsequent model of its flagship phone. We now have some theories about why Google teased its fourth Pixel — from eager to get out first with a design resolution to retaking the facility from leakers — however we would prefer to suggest another. In confirming a square camera array on the back of the Pixel 4, Google is telling the world that it is ready to compete against the iPhone, Galaxy S10 and even sleeper hit OnePlus 7 Pro.
The Pixel 4 is Google’s flagship phone and is anticipated to launch in October, assuming Google follows previous launch patterns. The Pixel phones are the primary to obtain updates and usually attraction to Android purists. However, regardless of Google’s model enchantment, they’ve didn’t seize the eye of patrons on the same degree of Samsung and Apple’s telephones.
Google has admitted that Pixel sales have waned year over year. And whereas slow sales are an ailment felt by phone manufacturers throughout the board, the Pixel’s exclusivity agreement with Verizon surely shoulders much of the blame, leaving informal observers underneath the impression that the Pixels had been out there solely via Verizon and never for each provider when ordered from Google’s online store.
What’s particularly stunning about Pixel’s battle is Google’s incapacity to this point to turn its massive effect in search and software program providers, from Gmail and Google Maps to Google Photos, to Google Assistant on each system and Google Drive, right into a rising Pixel following. The success of Google Home, the model’s sensible audio system, towards Amazon’s more established Echo, demonstrates that Google can efficiently make hardware work.
