Google might announce a 5G Pixel 4 at next week’s event

Google seems to be engaged on a 5G model of the Pixel 4, and it’s attainable the telephone might be proven as early as subsequent week, according to Nikkei. The customary variations of the Pixel 4, which might be introduced at an occasion subsequent Tuesday, will solely assist LTE. But Nikkei says that Google has begun “test production” on a mannequin of the telephone that features 5G, too.

It’s not clear when the 5G mannequin might be previewed or launched, although. Nikkei says it could possibly be proven subsequent week, however its sources stated the announcement is also held till spring to look alongside a brand new price range telephone, a successor to the Pixel 3A.

If the telephone is revealed on Tuesday, it’s doubtless that it could simply be a teaser for a launch afterward. It sounds as if growth isn’t completed, and units aren’t prepared to enter manufacturing but. Such an early tease appears considerably unlikely: Pixel three gross sales have been gradual at launch final yr, and Google would threat slowing gross sales of this yr’s mannequin by previewing a higher-end model that nobody can purchase but.

Either method, the objective appears to be getting a 5G telephone available on the market inside the subsequent yr, forward of a 5G iPhone that’s anticipated subsequent September. 5G networks are nonetheless of their infancy, and for customers, there’s nonetheless not quite a lot of purpose to get one among these telephones.

A brand new model of the Pixelbook has already been rumored, however a smartwatch isn’t one thing we’ve heard about. Google hasn’t had a lot luck with smartwatches prior to now (and Android smartwatches aren’t in a very good spot proper now), however given what number of are available on the market, it doesn’t seem to be it’d be all that arduous for Google to place one collectively if it actually needed to.
