Google launches cheaper Pixel 4 to undercut Apple's iPhone

The Guardian 

Google has launched its latest iPhone-competitor, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL, with new radar technology, dual-camera and a lower price. Google's consumer hardware division unveiled a series of new devices in New York, led by the Pixel 4 smartphone and including an updated Nest Mini smart speaker and Nest Wifi system, among other products. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are two new Google-made smartphones that are designed to challenge Apple's iPhone with new hardware and software technologies, plus Pixel-exclusive Android features, while undercutting it on price. The Pixel 4's UK price is £669 £70 less than last year's Pixel 3, or $799 in the US, and it comes with Google's new dual-camera system, which pairs a wide angle 12-megapixel camera with a 16-megapixel 2x telephoto camera for up to 3x hybrid zoom. The new camera also comes with Google's next generation of its "night sight" technology, capable of capturing long exposures of stars in astrophotography mode and other low-light tricks.
