In what was quite a shocking revelation, it has been speculated that the LG G6 won't feature this year's flagship chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point of time and may not hold true. However, the implications of such an event are devastating for LG, should it turn out to be true. The LG G-series of smartphones have traditionally been a rival of Samsung's Galaxy S-series every year. If it misses out on the most powerful upcoming smartphone chip for Android phones which its arch-rival will be sporting, LG will lose the competition even before the sales begin.
As you know already, this year's SD 835 chip is made on Samsung's 10nm process. Rumor has it that any phone which comes out before April will not be sporting the flagship SoC as the chips will all be used in the Galaxy S8 first, before being delivered to any other smartphones in 2017. What this means is that the S8 will be the first phone to have the Snapdragon 835 inside. As the LG G6 is scheduled to be showcased at the MWC next month and the S8 has been confirmed to be delayed indefinitely, facts are suggesting that the G6 will be sporting the Snapdragon 821 SoC from 2016. Make no mistake though, the SD 821 is still the most powerful chip for Android phones right now, but by the time the G6 is released, it may just be playing second fiddle to the more powerful and power-efficient SD 835.

The Google Pixel 4 is not a secret anymore. We know about Pixel 4 design and specs because Google has already talked about it. That\'s not because the Google Pixel 4 release date is coming in few weeks - we still expect the Pixel 4 is going to launch somewhere around in October - but its seems Google doesn\'t want months of insane rumors about its next phone design or specs. It does, however, take away some of the excitement about the launch and eradicates the \'will it, won\'t it\' debate on the overly square camera bump on the back side which is first of its type. Since its launch in 2016, the Pixel line has gained more popularity and visibility among the smartphone users. It offers plenty of premium features with great AI functionality. They smartphone has done immensely great to win the adoration of the tech community.
The competition in the smartphone is getting intense with every day passing, and Google in 2019 really needs to keep its work up to the standards to meet the expectoration for this next iteration. For years now, Google has opted to release its Pixel lineup in the latter half of the year, after the usual roller coaster of smartphone releases from the first half of the year has died down. More specifically, we expect a Google Pixel 4 launch date sometime in early October based on past form, with it likely that Google will take the opportunity to launch a few other hardware options at the same time, such as the long-rumored Pixel Watch.
Following the announcement, it\'s likely that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL release date will be in early November or in late October, if we keep the past dates align. With the extra features now included and the general emphasis on a premium fit and finish, the Pixel 4 - or at least the XL model - could be the first of the line to break the $1,000 price tag.vWe\'ll probably also see multiple different storage capacities offered at different prices. More information will arrive closer to the launch, so watch this space.
