In about six months, Google launches its next-generation Android handsets, whose specs have already been speculated for a long time now.
Pixel 4’s design has been spotted in a patent application, while many concept images have anticipated how the Pixel line will be. Googlers referred to the phone as the “Pixel 4” on forums, which proves that prototypes of the device are already available. Also, the brand provided us with a new clue: the alleged codenames of the phones.
9toGoogle, once again, found a new commit on the Android Open Source Project, concerning a labeling issue fixed with Android’s SELinux policy.
Of course, the issue is not our main concern, but this list of devices that includes the Pixel XL (Marlin), Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (Wahoo), Pixel 3 XL (Crosshatch), and Pixel 3a XL (Bonito), as well as two unknown devices – the Coral and Needlefish.
Coral is already used in the Google app code and it is not its first link with the Pixel 4. The same app pointed towards Flame as the codename for the Pixel 4 XL.
According to a Google Coral benchmark, Google might have been working on a smartphone featuring a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM. Also, it was believed that the device was running Android Q.
Now, it seems like the Pixel 4 will indeed have that major update, with the same chip used on some of this year’s best smartphones, as well as a RAM bump.
