Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are nailed on to emerge later in the year and now it looks like the phones will have the codenames Coral and Flame. 

The information has come to light courtesy of top digging from 9to5Google who looked at some information posted to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) as part of a troubleshooting effort for the security protocols on Android devices. 

The developer's information included existing Pixel codenames such as Crosshatch and Bonito for Pixel 3 XL variants but also two new codenames - Coral and Needlefish. 9to5Google then searched for the names in the code for the latest beta version of the Google search app for Android. 

The search confirmed that Pixel 4 is known as Coral but it also suggests that 4 XL will be known as Flame. That means that needlefish codename likely refers to another unknown device. Could be a long rumoured 'lite' Pixel? Or is it a totally new Google device? Since it is mentioned in the AOSP, it must be running Android. Flame is a particular type of angelfish, so could it be that it's just a variant of Pixel 4 XL? 

With Google seemingly have given up on Android tablets, it's highly likely it's another phone, anyway. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. 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.
