This week in Android: Pixel 4 leaks flood in, underwhelming iPhone competition
Another week, another long list of Pixel 4 leaks. At this point, we’ve seen just about everything there is to see about Google’s upcoming flagship phones, including new color schemes, motion gesture details, camera features, gaming performance, picture and video samples, and more. Keep up with the latest leaks (it’s hard, we know) at our Pixel 4 rumor roundup.
Android’s biggest competitor had a big week, with Apple unveiling the iPhone 11 series, plus a new iPad, Apple Watch, and several subscription services. The new iPhones feature improved performance and for the first time multiple cameras, which isn’t anything unheard of for Android fans. We weren’t impressed with the lack of fast charging in the box and abysmal storage options, starting at just 64 GB on a flagship phone.
On the review side, this week we published our reviews of the realme 5 Pro, the Google Nest Hub Max, the Fitbit Versa 2, the vivo Z1x, and the Android 10 update. Also be sure to check out some of our continuing coverage from last week’s IFA, where we listed our favorite new audio products, laptop computers, and mobile accessories.
