This leaked Pixel 4 XL video better be fake
Google’s Pixel smartphones are never best-sellers. In fact, top flagship phones from the likes of Apple and Samsung outsell Google’s Pixel lineup each year by an order of magnitude or even more. Pixel phones also aren’t the most powerful smartphones around, and they have never featured the most modern designs. Instead, they’re often far behind the times when it comes to smartphone design trends, and they launch so late in the year that it’s only a matter of a few months before flagship phones with next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors begin hitting store shelves. So they’re not best-sellers, they’re not the most powerful phones on the market, and they have always featured designs that are behind the times… and yet they’re always among the most talked-about smartphones of the year among hardcore Android fans.
The explanation is fairly simple: Google’s Pixel smartphone lineup is the only smartphone lineup to offer a pure Android experience that’s free of vendor add-ons and bloatware. It’s also the only smartphone lineup guaranteed to have instant access to all of Google’s new Android software updates the moment they’re released. That’s why hardcore Android fans are so excited about the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones that Google is readying for release, and now a new video claims to be the first to offer hands-on footage of the unreleased Pixel 4 XL flagship phone.
