Despite early leaks, evidence suggests no early release for the Google Pixel 4
The entire tech world was surprised yesterday when Google leaked its own upcoming Google Pixel 4 smartphone. That early leak led some to believe that the phone could launch earlier than usual for a Pixel device.
However, according to leaked information from Evan Blass, things are still on schedule and the Pixel 4 will very likely launch in October, just like the Google Pixel 3 and the Pixels before it.
The source of Blass’ information is a leaked Verizon marketing calendar, which clearly shows the Pixel 4 launching in October. See for yourself below:
The calendar also appears to confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will launch in August (as expected) and the Apple iPhone 11 (or iPhone XI, maybe) will launch in September, which also isn’t surprising.
Unfortunately, this means that the crop of 2019 iPhones will land a month before the Pixel 4, which is too bad because of the design similarities for both devices. If Google could push out the Pixel 4 before the iPhones, it would look like Apple copied Google’s design. If this calendar is to be believed, though, it will appear the other way around.
Still, there is a possibility that Google will surprise us all again with a new release plan. It’s very possible that Google didn’t expect so many leaks for the Pixel 4 and spontaneously revealed the design yesterday in response and is now scrambling to change its strategy.
What do you think? Is this enough proof that we should expect the Pixel 4 in October? Let us know your theories in the comments.
