Google took the weird step out-leaking the leakers with a render of the upcoming Pixel four, regardless that no one has been anticipated it to return any sooner than the standard October announcement. That lead us to wonder if Google is perhaps pushing its schedule ahead and getting forward of the 2019 iPhone launch, however alas that seems to not be the case.

As Ryne argued yesterday, an earlier Pixel launch would make loads of sense, however in line with a Verizon advertising calendar shared on Twitter by serial leaker Evan Blass, it will be October as per standard. He additionally factors out that the iPhone launch seems to be a bit of later this yr. We will not confirm this schedule, however Blass’ monitor report is such that it appears extremely more likely to be reliable.

It might have been good to get the Pixel a bit earlier within the yr, with Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon processor a lot brisker and concurrently the general public launch of the subsequent new Android model. If nothing else, it might have simply been good to get our palms on it sooner — we would like every part yesterday lately, who’s acquired time to attend round for stuff. Nevermind although, the Pixel four appears set to return in October, as have the final three iterations. Now when will Google share the entrance design with us, I’m wondering?
