Recently, two YouTubers from Vietnam posted lengthy, detailed reviews of what appeared to be Google's unreleased Pixel 4 XL smartphone.

The videos confirm the rumors of the 90Hz Smooth Display on the Pixel 4 phones, with the screen being able to dynamically switch between 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rates, depending on the content being displayed.

The video, which comes courtesy of a YouTube channel named AnhEm TV, reveals a few interesting features. The video also offers us a look at the new Google Camera UI. It's not clear to what extent accurate 3D imaging will be featured in the new phones, but certainly gesture controls will figure prominently into the equation. This time, the company might push it a little further to October 15, according to leakster Evan Blass.

The Pixel 4 series devices are rumored to sport a dual rear camera setup, which will be a significant upgrade compared to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Sadly, though, there was no demo of the chip in action. It boasts a white colorway with a matte black panel and matte black sides, a callout to Google's "Panda" Pixel 2 XL model from years past.

There's a second leak showing the Pixel 4 as well, and it gives a better look at the phone's colors. Not only have we seen a much more bearable camera module (one that doesn't conjure tropophobia triggers), we now have an idea of how well it will run mobile games.


However, the 8x zoom feature is dicey, as it is unclear whether the camera would feature optical zoom or a combination of both optical and digital.

The first video, which is nearly 7 minutes long, shows off the Pixel 4 XL in all its glory.

Among other features, it shows a user taking a Night Sight photograph by holding the shutter button down for a long exposure, prompting the phone to display the "Hold still" warning to minimize movement between frames - which it then stacks to produce a cleaner exposure.

Finally, the video mentions a Sony IMX481 telephoto sensor, Sony IMX363 standard sensor, and Sony IMX520 front-facing sensor. The video also showed the Display settings where a new Styles & Wallpapers is added just above the Dark mode toggle.
