In a rare move by any technology company,the existence of the several months before its planned release in October. The tech giant has not only released the news on his own Twitter account, but he has also included a picture of the phone, which represents a square camera hump, with several rear cameras. Judging by the reactions on the tweet, many were taken aback by the news – not because of the phone, but because Google decided to unveil the news at all. the in use in London.
It is unusual to drop so soon the name of a camera and an official image. Despite numerous rumors, images rendered and specifications leaked, companies such as Apple, Samsung and Google generally hold to not advertise their products until they organize official events such as the conference Apple's developers and the September iPhone event, Samsung Unpacked and Google I / O, where the company unveiled its latestand . Google declined a request for comment, but we have some assumptions as to why Google made such a decision.
Reason 1: he can pretend that he has not copied the iPhone 11
The most common theory is that Google wanted to get ahead of all the accusations that he copied Apple and his next iPhone. For several months, the nextAccording to some rumors, the camera would also have a square hump. Given that the iPhone is expected to come out in September and that Pixel phones are generally launched in October, it would be easy to conclude that . (BTW: The camera configuration is not entirely unique – the , for example, also has such a design.) To avoid such a speech, Google could have decided to release the image sooner to say that it had the design in mind well before the launch of the iPhone, knowing that Apple would remain discreet about everything. IPhone features until September.
Reason 2: Pixel 4 could come out before October
Four months, it's long enough to tease a product before the scheduled launch date. Maybe Google has released this information in June, because the Pixel 4 might not make its debut in October. Maybe the phone arrives earlier, as in September (to position itself even closer to the competition of the iPhone) or even in August. It would be a strange gesture, since the Pixel 3A and 3A XL had just been announced in May and it would be a good idea that Google leaves a little time between the announcements of its two series of phones.
Reason 3: Google does not care anymore!
When Google announced Pixel 3 last year, that was about it. make fun of this fact before launching Pixel 3 (see below). The same thing applied to Pixel 3A. Because of all the leaks, people have learned that Google is working on a more complex variant of the pixel and we even have a look at its new purple color before Google I / O.at the time. Most outlets already had a general idea of what the phone would look like (Engadget released the box three days before launch) and many of the specs that were supposed to have proved to be accurate. Google even managed to
Because we live in a time when it's so hard to keep an eye on product announcements, Google might have decided to just say "screw it up." If photos of the Pixel 4 camera were to be disclosed anyway (), the company could just as easily jump on it. At least, it can then get ahead of the news and control to some extent whatever the narrative technology enthusiasts. For my part, I welcome this energy and I would not like to have more information from Google.
