  • Google Pixel 4 may get dual SIM support like the iPhone

The report underscores some of the rumors that have already been floating around regarding the search giant's product plans for 2019.

Other industry-specific details in the report are also interesting. The smartphone is likely to be a part of the rumoured Pixel 3 Lite-Series that is expected to debut as the inferior smartphone range alongside the Pixel 3 family that was launched a year ago. Exactly how cheap the Pixel 3 Lite might end up being is unclear at this stage.

That means both are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset, have 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 630 GPU.

It's reported Google's new phone will be its first non-high-priced model for price-sensitive consumers and emerging-market users, and its price is expected to be lower than the Apple iPhone XR, which costs $749 Dollars. It uses the same curved bezels around the display, instead of the chunky notch that appeared on the Pixel 3 XL and was publicly mocked by Samsung.

Pixel 3 Lite purportedly has the same 5.5-inch screen size as the Pixel 3, but will carry a lower resolution 2,220 x 1,080 IPS panel compared to the FHD+ OLED on the latter. In addition, we know it plans to release its flagship Pixel phone. Google will hold its annual developer conference - dubbed Google I/O - from May 7 - May 9, 2019. If you didn't get a chance to vote, now's your time to sound off in the comments on what you would have chosen. It's also been a while since the original Google Home was released, and Nikkei pegs it as getting an improved refresh - though I'd still love to see a water-resistant unit for the bathroom.

Elsewhere, the unconfirmed report mentions "an updated version" of the Google Home. Unfortunately, there's no additional details around what these updates could entail, but it seems likely that we'll a new smart speaker from Google. Apart from the new smartphone, Google is also reported to expand its hardware lineup by introducing a smartwatch to take on the likes of Apple Watch. However, it failed to materialise during the launch. The sources claim that the new hardware direction from the company has been behind Google's hiring activity all the way back to its deal with HTC in 2017. A new Nest Cam.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, while the current entry-level Pixel 3 starts at $799, only fifty dollars more.
