New leak confirms Pixel 4 will have a taller display and 6 GB RAM.



GOOGLE’S UPCOMING Pixel 4 handsets will finally see an upgrade in the RAM department, according to a new leak.

As per “reliable inside sources” speaking to BGR, Google will equip both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL with 6GB RAM, a welcome upgrade over the measly 4GB stuffed inside last year’s model. Still, perhaps someone should probably tell Google that most modern flagships now ship with 8GB, or in some cases even 12GB RAM.

The tipsters also claim that the Pixel 4 handsets will feature larger screens than the Pixel 3; the regular model will sport a 19:9 1080×2280 display, while the Pixel 4 XL will feature a 19:9 1440×3040 panel. Last year’s models features 18:9 and 18.5:9 screens with 1080×2160 and 1440×2960 resolutions, respectively.

Elsewhere, this latest leak suggests that both phones will be offered with 128GB storage, though BGR notes that it’s still unclear what other capacities will be available.


“It’s also not clear if higher-end Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL models might come with additional RAM, but that’s not something Google has done in the past,” it adds.

Reports also suggested that the phones would either have an in-display fingerprint sensor or a 3D face unlock module at the front, or both. The bottom edge of the phone may feature two external speakers with a USB-C port in between.

In addition, the Pixel 4 device would not feature any front-firing speakers like the previous Pixel models.

The device would be powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset and run the upcoming Android Q operating system (OS).











Canon finally makes the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM official




NEW YORK– B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of Canon’s RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm f2.8L IS USM lenses for its full-frame mirrorless camera system. Event and street photographers will find much to appreciate in the 24-70mm workhorse, while landscape and architectural photographers will appreciate the reach of the 15-35mm in such a compact package. Additionally, Canon has released a firmware update for EOS R and EOS RP mirrorless shooters that improves the accuracy and speed of Eye Detection AF as well as the ability to focus on moving subjects from a distance.

The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8 lens is equally equipped for composing street scenes in the city as it is for rendering sweeping landscapes in the desert. Its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is supplemented by up to five stops of shake correction to ensure sharp image capture even in low-light conditions and shooting handheld. Canon’s Nano Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology makes autofocusing fast, quiet, and smooth. A minimum focusing distance of 0.92′ (0.28m) makes it possible to get up close and personal when composing your foregrounds.

Three aspherical elements and two Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations while Air Sphere Coating (ASC) minimizes lens flare and ghosting, keeping images sharp and clean. Like other RF lenses, the 15-35mm includes a customizable Control Ring to easily adapt to your shooting style. A weather- and dust-resistant build, coupled with fluorine coating on the lens itself, means it can handle less than ideal weather. Weighing 1.85 lb and measuring just under 5″ in length, it is easily portable without weighing you down.

The Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8 lens shares many of the same impressive qualities as its wider partner, including its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, Nano USM autofocusing, and five stops of shake correction. One of the most adaptable zoom ranges, the 24-70mm is an ideal everyday lens especially popular among event photographers who must quickly capture groups and individual portraits without fussing with multiple lenses. A minimum focusing distance of 0.69′ (0.21m) when shooting at 24mm and 1.25′ (0.38m) when shooting at 70mm gives you plenty of room to work with.
