If Google Pixel 3 was the worst kept secret of 2018, Google is all set to continue the tradition as upcoming Pixel 4 is turning out to be the worst kept secret of this year. There have already been numerous leaks and rumors along with hands-on videos and now, we have two more Pixel 4 XL hands-on videos which are more in-depth and high quality than previous ones.
These new videos are coming from Indonesian YouTube channels named AnhEm TV and Rabbit TV respectively. Starting with the first one, it shows the Pixel 4 XL smartphone in fans' beloved Panda color variant. It is the variant where you get White-colored back panel with Black-colored front panel bezels and side frames. It has an Orange-colored power button as we saw with the first Panda variant Google released with Pixel 2 series. Lastly, you will find the square-shaped rear camera setup in Black color as well which resembles what we saw with the iPhone 11 Pro lineup. Google is also using a single-tone finish for the back panel instead of the two-tone finish it used previously.
In terms of software experience and features, Pixel 4 XL is showing running Android 10 which is expected. It has a new Smooth Display feature that will auto adjust display refresh rate between 90Hz and 60Hz depending on the content. This essentially confirms the rumors that Pixel 4 series will come with 90Hz display. This will result in smoother animations and make the device feel faster, especially when swiping through a long feed or web page.
Another interesting feature is Ambient EQ that is said to be same as Apple's TrueTone display functionality. It means it will adjust the display color temperature depending on the ambient light. It is said that the feature helps eyes get less strained, especially at night. One can also see the system-wide Dark Mode in action.
If we talk about the second hands-on video, it shows Pixel 4 XL in three color variants. It shows the flagship in complete Black and a Coral-like color option along with the aforementioned Panda color variant. You can check out both these videos below to get an idea of what to expect from the Pixel 4 XL.
