This morning I was set to report on another minor leak of the Google Pixel 4, until there was an entire deluge of information leaked in the form of video reviews. The difference is the leaks provide the clearest looks at the Pixel 4 we've had yet. The hands-on videos were posted from Vietnamese and Thai YouTube channels. Several details of the highly anticipated Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have been leaked over the past two weeks.

KitGuru Says: Last year's Pixel 3 ended up launching at around the £750 mark, so we may see similar pricing again this year. The display shows the Pixel 4 XL is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset, and not the 855+.

Known tipster Evan Blass has revealed a new render of the upcoming Pixel 4. These actions are part of the quick gestures in the Motion Sense menu, as is the ability to silence interruptions (snooze an alarm or silence a phone call).

The 6.23-inch screen of the Pixel 4 XL is a bit smaller compared to the 6.3-inches of the Pixel 3 XL.

Based on what we've seen of them so far, are you interested in the Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL? In Google's defence, the forehead of the Pixel 4 series will house some of the most important sensors, including the Soli Radar chip and front camera, which will help carry out hands-free gestures in select markets (doesn't include India). But it also tells us about some new stuff, particularly when it comes to that display.

While the traditional "Pixel Window" aesthetic is gone - the back panel is one continuous texture, rather than a mix of matte and glossy - the metal frame of this white model has been coated in a contrasting matte black, with a salmon-colored power button for a little pop. The image in question corroborates everything previously reported such as the larger upper bezel that's home to a variety of sensor, the impressively slim chin, and the thin side bezels. While this is not thought to involve the Pixel 4, it's possible demo models were sent to the factory for testing and whatnot.

A curated storefront that lets players cut through the fat is a decent idea, but it remains to be seen if people will pay for it. And, in India, the subscription will cost only ₹99 per month whereas, in the USA , the cost for Apple Arcade is $4.99 (₹358.57).
