And with Google expected to announce the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL something next month, these two devices are expected to go head on.

In this article we will be looking at the announced and expected features of both of these phones. This way it will be easier for you to decide which of the two devices is a better buy.
The brandnew iPhone will be available in two different avatars, the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro. The Pro version will be available in two different sizes
The iPhone 11 Pro will have a 5.8-inch display whereas the iPhone 11 Pro Max will have a 6.5-inch display. Apple has upgraded the display to a new OLED panel, which it calls the Super Retina XDR display. This new display has a 2 million to 1 contrast ratio, 1200 nits of brightness and is 15 percent more energy efficient than the previous iPhones. Apple also claims that the glass in its new smartphone is the toughest of any other smartphone in the world,

In addition to the 2 lenses that was featured in the iPhone XS, the iPhone 11 Pro has an additional 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree field of view. The telephoto camera has also been upgraded and will now be able to capture 40 percent more light than the iPhone XS.

All phones are available for trade in, where you get to buy the new phones for a cheaper price in exchange for your old iPhone. A great incentive for iPhone owners to upgrade. The new iPhones will be available starting September 20.
Unlike with the iPhone 11, we haven’t had an official revelation from Google regarding the new Pixel phones. We will most likely be introduced to the device next month. But in the mean time, we can speculate based on leaks.
The new pixel phones are expected to have a 5.7-inch and a 6.3-inch display with an impressive refresh rate of 90 Hz.
Pixel 3 and 3 XL stood out for their impressive cameras. Google was spot on with the hardware-software integration in these devices. And we can expect them to keep the trend with the upcoming Pixel 4 devices. The major difference will be that the Pixel 4 devices will feature a dual-camera setup unlike the Pixel 3 devices, adding a new telephoto lens. A recently leaked promo video even promised astrophotography mode.
The new Pixel phones will most likely be featuring a featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM.
We’re not really sure how much Google will charge for the new Pixel phones. Pixel 3 and 3XL had debuted for $799 and $899 respectively last year. This was $150 and $50 more than the Pixel 2 devices from a year earlier. So, the prices for the Pixel 4 and 4 XL could actually end up being more than that of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro.
