That Google Pixel 4 exclusive leak is very fake

Google Site Search
Yes, it’s already that time. The Google Pixel 4, or whatever it’s called, is more than half a year away, but very bad blogs (as they do) are already going in for the kill — shamelessly capitalizing on some sweet clicks with their “leaks”. A blog post from one of those websites today (which I will not link) has been making the rounds claiming an “exclusive” about Google’s next flagship. It’s not one. Deal: Get Pixelbook at 25% off: $750! It’s a tried-and-true traffic strategy in the blogging world. All you have to do is find a patent that describes some crazy technology that could or could not plausibly be in development for some future product, and tell your readers it definitely is. And not only is it evidence of a real technology that will come to a real consumer product someti

Google might have bought Motorola back in 2012 for a whopping $12.5 billion and sold it off to Lenovo at a loss of nearly $10 billion barely two years later, but the company’s latest patent application suggests that the search engine giant might still be in pursuit of getting its money’s worth from the ill-fated acquisition.Google has recently filed a patent application detailing a modular smartphone ecosystem nearly two and a half years after Motorola unveiled the original Moto Mods branded modular devices under Lenovo ownership.Google’s modular Lego-esque phoneTitled as “Modular Device and Methods Therefor”, the patent application (also archived at the Wayback Machine) details what could very well be a parallel design path for the existing Pixel smartphone line-up, or potentially eve

ElisaRiva / Pixabay Google is said to be working on a Pixel 3 Lite with watered-down specs. It will reportedly arrive in the next few months at a mid-range price tag.

Even though the Google Pixel 4 is several months away, early leaks and rumors have already started surfacing online. Let’s take a look at the rumored features, specs, price, and release date of Google Pixel 4. Pixel 4 design and display Smartphone design is not Google’s biggest strength. But the search engine giant has done a decent job with the previous generation Pixel phones. Just like its predecessors, the Google Pixel 4 is expected to have a two-tone rear panel.

Samsung became the first smartphone maker to showcase a foldable smartphone and is expected to launch the device later this year. However, Samsung is not likely to be the only company working on a foldable smartphone. Google is also believed to be working on a foldable smartphone that could arrive as part of its Pixel lineup. The information comes courtesy of Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, who was also responsible for all the leaks related to Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL last year. Murtazin says Google has no less than seven Pixel prototypes under works at the time. Two of them were the current Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL while one of those prototypes is said to the foldable smartphone. In line with Murtazin’s report, a new rumor points at the existence of a foldable Pixel smartphone. The in

Google Pixel 3 XL Design Let’s start from the bottom and work our way up. At the base of the Pixel 3 XL, there’s a nano-sim tray and a USB-C port — but no headphone jack. Head up the phone, and you’ll find the microphone/speaker grille along the bottom-front bezel. The grille is long, running to about a third of the width of the overall phone, but it’s slim, so it’s not too too large for its own good. The bottom bezel isn’t huge, but isn’t as slim as, say, a Samsung S9 or iPhone XS. Round the back, you’ve got a long, matte-finished pane of glass. We tried the ‘Clearly White’ version, and it looks and feels excellent – especially when compared to the slippery glass rears on Apple’s recent iPhones. Round the front, you’ve got the 6.3-inch OLED display. It has a Quad-HD+ resolution (2960×

Walmart's iPhone XS Black Friday deals 2018.Walmart Google is clearly keen to offload some Pixel units because its 2018 Black Friday deals are the biggest discount I’ve seen from the Search giant. Apple, meanwhile, remains true to form with few discounts coming directly from the iPhone maker, but the big retailers have a few deals up their sleeves. Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3XL For those of you who prefer to buy a smartphone without a contract (which I recommend), Google is offering direct discounts on both of its latest devices: the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Right now Google is offering up to 50% off either Pixel 3 if two are purchased. There’s also a square £40 off on the UK Google store if either device is bought. It looks like the US store will

Share to facebook Share to twitter Share to linkedin Pixel 3 XL: It has a display that rivals the best OLED smartphone screens.Credit: Google Need a good reason to get a Google Pixel 3 XL? Read on. [This is a very brief review focused on the display.] With the new 6.3-inch Pixel ($899), Google got the OLED display right. This time ditching the Pixel 2 XL's muted colors and blue tint. That makes for an almost perfect phone. The original sin I had the Pixel 2 XL from day one. Many (if not all) of the initial Pixel 2 XLs were marred by an inferior OLED display, courtesy of supplier LG Display. I had two Pixel 2 XLs with awful screens, i.e., muted colors and excessive blue shift (aka, a blue tint) -
