This week's lowdown: Pixel 4 leak and Pokemon Sleep

Google tease the Pixel 4

This week Google have started teasing their annual October phone launch – introducing the Google Pixel 4!

After some rumblings online, Google tweeted the first teaser image of the newest addition to the Pixel family. It doesn’t give much away – it’s a black phone on a black background – but here are some of the key takeaways:

  • Dual cameras for the first time! A square camera bump shows the possibility of two lenses
  • Two sensors might also be joining the lenses
  • No fingerprint built-in scanner on the back of the phone – could it mean facial recognition or an in-built sscreen sensor?

Speculation is rife, but no more info has been revealed as yet – although we’re bound to see some leaks before the October launch. Stay tuned!

What’s the opposite of Pokemon Go?

We’ve gone crazy over Pokémon Go – now it’s time for Pokémon Sleep. After all that walking, we deserve it!

The Pokémon Company – advised by Snorlax – have created a “new app that tracks a user’s time sleeping.” Joining the world of smart sleep tech, Pokémon Sleep will use your sleep stats – how long you sleep for, when you wake up etc. – in your gameplay experience.

Launching sometime in 2020, we’ve got plenty of time to hone our nap skills before it takes over our lives.
