Google finally unveiled its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. 

After months of dropping details, Google lifted what little curtain was left at its Made by Google event in New York City on Tuesday. The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will come in at 5.7 inches and 6.3 inches, respectively, with starting prices of $799 and $899.

They will also feature OLED displays with a 90 Hz refresh rate, which will make for much smoother scrolling and better gaming. 

You can preorder them today, and they start shipping on Oct. 24. 

They’ll both come with Android 10 pre-installed and feature a new square camera bump on the back, which holds 16MP and 12.2MP cameras. Google’s Night Sight will also let you take photos of the stars at night, something other night modes can’t handle.

In addition, previously confirmed new features include a Face ID-like feature for unlocking the phone. A feature called Motion Sense lets you interact with your Pixel 4 with hand gestures that don’t require you to touch your phone. 

On the spec side of things, both Pixels will pack 6GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 855 processor. Both phones are available with either 64GB or 128GB of storage. (The higher storage option will cost you $100 extra.)

Rather than let leakers spoil every detail of the Pixel 4 before its unveiling, Google took it upon itself to do that throughout much of 2019. As such, there was very little in the way of genuine surprise on Tuesday. Still, we’re glad to finally know everything about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
