If you were wondering whether a Google Pixel 4 is in development, the first official references to the phone have been uncovered.

The Google Pixel 3 is not even six months old, and yet 9to5Google noticed a few mentions of Google’s next Pixel, the Google Pixel 4, by a Google employee who posted to an Android Open Source Project code change. Google’s own software engineer made three distinct references to the yet-to-be-announced device, while discussing a fix for an issue with Google's memory error detection tool (KASAN).

There's little information to glean from the post, but it suggests that Google Pixel 4 units could be in testing. It seems Google wants to begin testing a bug fix on Google Pixel 3 units before then testing on, presumably, pre-production Pixel 4 units. Pixel 4 likely won't be unveiled until October, so with such a long time to go, rumours and leaks aren't exactly common. Pixel 4 is all but unknown to us.

There's speculation it could keep Google’s two-tone design, maybe add a second camera with a wide-angle lens, and ditch the notch. We've yet to see any concrete evidence, however, so much of this could change in the coming months.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
