Pixel 4 and 4 XL rumors and specs: Launching Oct. 15 with Face ID-type gesture controls and orange color

  Pixel 4 and 4 XL rumors and specs: Launching Oct. 15 with Face ID-type gesture controls and orange color Google's next flagship is definitely on its way. Keep tabs on the other rumors about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.But last year's Pixel 3 and 3XL didn't sell as well, despite their exceptional cameras and critical acclaim. This could be because the phones are exclusive to Verizon (though they work on other US carriers), plus the fact that people in general aren't buying phones as much as they used to. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL phones are also expensive, unlike the Pixel 3A phones.
