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

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

T he Pixel 4 is Google's latest flagship phone, and lots of details about the device have leaked online during the last few months. The feature, however, may not launch in India at all.

A new Google support document explains that although three-button navigation is still available in Android 10 (and can be activated through System Gestures System navigation), if you select it, you won't be able to use the new Assistant.

Google's flagship Pixel series smartphones are known for their cameras. However, the company did talk about using Project Soli's MotionSense tech to start the process of unlocking the phone as soon as the user reaches for the phone. When in fact there are tons of exciting new AI and machine learning features, camera controls, and cool things the Pixel 4 has to offer.

"It will get there", Rakowski said, "but now is not the right time to buy a 5G phone".

Reddit user stephenvsawyer, has found out that if you save your photos taken on an iPhone as HEIC/HEIF will get free unlimited storage of their pictures at the original resolution with Google Photos. The two pack option can cover up to 3,800 square feet, and it's scalable, so you can add more units to cover more space.

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker tickets now available for preorder
We learned in the initial teaser trailer that we'll see the return of Emperor Palpatine, but he didn't show up in the second look. The hype for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker can't be understated.


With the announcement of its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, Google is showing that flagship can still sit in the same thousand-dollar category it has been a resident of for so long, holding on with premium looks and features without the hefty cost.

Even with the Pixel 4 available in more places, Google's going to have to convince people its phones are worth at least $799. All you need to do is make sure you're signed in to the Google Store with the same account used for Google One, and within 30 days of your shipment, the credit will be automatically calculated and issued without any heavy lifting on your part. Pixel 4 will be powered with a 2,800mAh battery whereas Pixel 4 XL will provide a 3,700mAh battery.

Google One trial and Pro Sessions for Pixel 4 buyers.

"By the end of September 2019, Samsung was the dominant player with 44% market share, followed by Huawei at 26%, while Apple was sitting in third position with about 15% market share".
