9 Reasons to Wait for the Pixel 4 & 5 Reasons Not to

Wait For More Information

Wait For More Information

We know Google's new phones later this year will be great devices. We know it'll have the latest Snapdragon processor with the best performance on the market, 6-8GB of RAM, more storage, more cameras, a bigger screen and everything else people love. We know all of that. 

What we don't know is all of the specifics. Will Google be able to offer a bezel-free screen, in-display fingerprint scanner, and its signature front-facing speakers? If not, what will they do differently? Maybe the patent images that leaked this week are of the Pixel 5 coming in 2020. Who knows. How will it be different from the Pixel 3, compete with the Galaxy S10, and compare against the iPhone 11 Pro? Those are important questions.

Will 2019 finally be the year that Google offers more than one camera on the back? Even if they have software that makes the single Pixel 3 camera nearly as good as the triple camera phones available throughout 2018. Who knows. We might even get a Google Pixel Ultra in 2019. 

Wait as long as you can until we get more and more info. You'll thank me later. 

Perhaps the biggest reason to wait, for me, is because of the OnePlus 7T. This year OnePlus released two phones and the Pro was incredible, but expensive, which made it worth waiting for the Pixel 4. But now, we're also thinking it's worth waiting to see what the 7T looks like too.

Basically, one of the biggest reasons to get a OnePlus phone over a Pixel is the price, but this year that gap isn't as big as before the justify some of the shortcomings.

    One of the things I wish to see in the next-gen pixel is the dual camera for better Bokeh and also the minimal front. I dont want to see them copying. Hoping they will bring a few changes and be pioneer in the design bringing something which we have never seen.

    This was a really thoughtful article. Been reading up all morning and this made me both look forward to the Pixel 4 and also confirm to me that I shouldn’t wait for it this time around. I would also mention that the Pixel 3/3XL Lite is rumored to be dropping in a month or so. Great cost effective alternative for a brand new Pixel albeit a plastic-bodied version of last year’s model.

    Pixel might only be 3 generations in but Google had 6 generations of Nexus phones before it. I’m sure the only reason they renamed is that Nexus 7 was already taken by their 7″ tablet.
    They’ll be releasing their 10th generation phone too this year. Noob.

      Well.. Kind of, but I disagree completely! Nexus phones were made by HTC a few times, LG, HTC again, and even Motorola made one. Even the last-gen Nexus 5X and 6P were made by LG (5x) and Huawei made the Nexus 6P. Obviously, they ALL looked completely different.

      So while this is “technically” the 10th phone from Google, it’s honestly the 4th where Google’s actually making the majority of the choices, decisions, designs, etc.

    Please do not curve the sides of the google pixel 4 xl. It makes it easier to play word search puzzle without losing your place while using the stylus to get the correct answer

    Jesus Christ talk about grading on a curve … pretending all the previous efforts of Nexus didn’t exist

    Whenever I saw those patent drawings, I could only see one thing: The Pixel 2 XL without the screen outline. I don’t know when these patents were filed (which could potentially, technically rule that out), but I don’t know how no one has mentioned this (on the articles and posts I’ve read so far anyway)…

    I believe it is in fact the Pixel 2 XL due to the placement of the speakers, flash, and camera lens. But mostly due to the glass section design.

    By the way, Flame is a fish. The flame angel is a bright red marine fish and one of the most beautiful in existence.

    I really really hope that they dont remove the fingerprint sensor from the back. It is my favorite unlock from any phone ever and I love it on my pixel 2.

      Almost positive this phone will have no fingerprint scanner. If it does have one, it’ll be under the screen. positive.

    Another reason for waiting on a future Pixel device is 5G connectivity. I’m planning on holding onto my 2016 Pixel XL until a few months after the first Pixel 5G is released, when the price should have depreciated quite a bit.

      Oh absolutely. It’ll get released near the end of October. Then a few weeks later see discounts, not to mention more discounts for Black Friday. Combine a trade-in deal with BF and you’ll score a sweet deal!
