- Google teased a picture of its new Pixel 4 phone on Wednesday.
- Google typically launches its Pixel phones in the fall. It launched the Pixel 3 last October.
- The Pixel 4 will likely be joined by the Pixel 4 XL and will run Googleâs new version of Android that is currently called Android Q.
GoogleÂ on Wednesday teased its next phone. A Google spokesperson confirmed itâs called the Pixel 4.
Google doesnât normally publish early images or tease unreleased products, but it may have decided to do so following several recent leaks. It appears to have a unique camera set up on the back, though itâs unclear what sort of new functions it will add. Googleâs Pixel phones have regularly been considered to have some of the best phone cameras on the market.
The picture looks almost identical to that published byÂ OnLeaks and Pricebaba. The former is a Twitter account run by Steve H. McFly that has accurately leaked information about phones well ahead of launch.
TheÂ Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were announced last OctoberÂ and were followed by the more affordableÂ Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, which launched in May. The Pixel 4 will likely be joined by a larger XL model as well.
Itâs unclear when Google will launch the Pixel 4, but it typically releases its new phones in the fall after Appleâs September iPhone events. Thatâs also when Google usually releases its next version of Android.
Android QÂ is currently in developer testing and does not yet have a final name, but will succeed last yearâs Android 9 Pie release.
Alphabet Inc. Cl C shares were unchanged in after-hours trading Wednesday. Year-to-date, Alphabet Inc. (GOOG - Get Rating) has gained 4.00%, versus a 15.90% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
