Google has sent out invitations to a 'Made by Google' event it's holding in New York City on October 15, and that can only mean one thing: Pixel 4, baby. You don't have to wait until then to learn about Big G's next flagship, though – the top-end Google Pixel 4 XL has leaked more times than we can count, leaving little to the imagination.
However, the Search behemoth could have an ace up its sleeve. Some rumour-spinners believe that the Google Pixel 4a and Google Pixel 4a XL will launch alongside the Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL on October 15. Doing so will put the Google devices in direct competition with Apple's iPhone XR and brand new iPhone 11.

- iPhone 11 announced with ultra-wide camera and a smaller price tag
- iPhone 11 deals: where to pre-order Apple's latest iPhone on the cheap
It's tough to say whether that will be the case. Google released its first a-Series device in May 2019 after its fruit-named rival blindsided it with the release of the cheap(er) iPhone XR in September 2018. As such, one would assume that May 2020 is the benchmark for the refresh – but it could happen sooner. We'll have to wait and see.
The Google Pixel 4 XL will no doubt be the star of the show, with its 6.2-inch 90Hz 2K screen, Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 855 CPU, 6GB of RAM, dual-camera on both the front and rear, 128GB of storage and a 3700mAh battery. The Google Pixel 4, on the other hand, is said to have a smaller 5.8-inch display and 2800mAh cell.
