Wait For An Even Better Display
In 2018 Google delivered a massive 6.3-inch screen with the Pixel 3 XL, it's biggest yet. And while we thought we'd get a bigger screen in 2019, it looks like they'll simply make it better instead. Keeping the screen the same size, but adding a 90 Hz display.
It sounds like buyers will get the choice between a 5.7-inch 1080p display on the smaller Pixel 4, then 6.3-inches (Quad-HD) with the Pixel 4 XL. Both devices will have a new 90 Hz "Smooth Display" refresh rate, similar to the popular OnePlus 7 Pro.
We're not sure where they're going to put the speaker grill, but my guess is angled and buried in the top of the frame, and something similar on the bottom. A recent patent by Google (image above) shows how this could look with an edge-to-edge screen. We do know that early reviews claim the speakers sound excellent, better than before, even though they aren't forward-facing.
All we really know is the screen will somehow be better, maybe a little bigger, have smaller bezels, and look great. They'll ditch the notch and opt for a small forehead to house all those sensors.
