Only hours after Google stunned everybody by halfway uncovering the design of the Pixel 4 months ahead of schedule, affirming a large number of the leaks that had jumped up in recent weeks in the process, a release date for the phone may have developed. On Thursday morning, VentureBeat’s Evan Blass shared a screenshot of what seems to be a leaked Verizon marketing calendar containing the release dates of multiple “tier 1” mobile devices.
Notwithstanding highlighting the May launch of the Pixel 3a, the calendar likewise proposes that the Galaxy Note 10 will launch in August, the iPhone 11 will debut in late September, and the Pixel 4 will arrive in October. These dates line up with desires essentially to a tee, yet increasingly proof never stings.
Albeit nothing on the calendar is particularly astounding, it drives home exactly how out of the ordinary Google’s tweet was on Wednesday, uncovering the final design of the Pixel 4 four months ahead of launch. This is an unexplored area for Google (and for most other major cell phone producers), however as leaks become progressively ordinary, a portion of these phone creators are going to attempt to discover approaches to control the narrative.
Everybody won’t attempt to gather a lot from this calendar, as these dates could absolutely change contingent upon an assortment of factors, yet it’s at any rate significant that there is only one iPhone launch listed. People may recall that the iPhone XR wound up propelling a long time after the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, yet this might (and everyone want to underscore that “might”) be an indication that every one of the three iPhone models will launch at the same time in 2019.
In any case, if all the iPhone leaks are to be believed, the designs of the iPhone 11 and Pixel 4 appear to be unimaginably comparable. It will be interesting to see whether Google’s decision to get out before the leaks (decently well) will pay off when it comes to the narratives that will inevitably arise as the year goes on.
