Analysts predict tough time for Google's Pixel 4 in SA

Google Officially Announces the Pixel 4 & 4XL With Fastest Face Unlock in the Industry

Made By Google 2019 – all the big announcements

Although leaked images of Pixel 4 show a requirement for "eyes open", BBC News says the feature was not available in the phones it tested.

However, unlike Apple, which uses fingerprint sensor technology for things like password and banking apps, Google has chose to work differently on the technical side. "If the Pixel 4 was to launch in South Africa, it would compete against the top-selling flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and the Huawei P20 Pro". If Big Red didn't do it for you, then you had to turn to Google, either buying the phone unlocked or getting your Pixel through the Google Fi wireless service that Google operates. However, gradually Google Assistant became one of the best AI when it comes to accuracy of answers.

A spokesperson for Google confirmed to the BBC that, when the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL ship to preorder customers later this month, the functionality will still operate as it does on initial units provided to reviewers.

Vladimir Putin said he had discussed the offensive with Erdogan, who he previously referred to as an ally. But Erdogan told journalists that he had rejected United States offers to mediate.


"But we also need to consider that Google isn't selling phones for the same reason Apple is", Nguyen added. Even if you have a maxed-out Google Pixel 3 XL that debuted just a year ago, the Google Store trade-in will only value your device at $295.

The Pixel 4's killer feature looks like an enhanced Night Sight that can actually capture the night sky and stars, plus there's HDR+, and overall improvements to RAM, memory, and speed. But for some of us filled with new phone release fatigue, looking at the specs differences between the models will be a major factor in determining whether it's worth the upgrade. "In part, Apple needs to maintain market share; while Pixels have never been about market share".
