Google to unveil next Pixel phone on August 3

Google's next Pixel smartphone will be unveiled on August 3.

The firm posted their own leak on their website, with the outline of a phone and a paragraph of 'lorum ipsum' placeholder text to tease their next device in the line.

And now, many have taken this as a sign that they will be launching the eagerly-anticipated 'Pixel 4a', a more compact version of the Pixel 4, next week.

The same graphic was shared on their social media pages and some of the words were uncovered to reveal: 'The Google Just What You've Been Waiting For Phone'.

The device is rumored to go on sale for around $399, and benefit from exceptional photography capabilities.

Meanwhile, last year, the company updated the Pixel 4's Face Unlock feature to allow the smartphone to "recognize" the owner's face "better over time" thanks to an improvement in the Pixel Features Drop.

Google stated: "When it's on, face unlock images are occasionally used to create improved face models.

"This helps recognize you better over time."

The Face Unlock works even if a person has their eyes closed.

While, earlier this month, Google officially discontinued the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.

The tech giant announced the inventory of the handsets was "completed" and they would no longer be selling the midrange devices on the Google Store.

In a statement, Google said: "Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3A.

"For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 3A, the product is available from some partners while supplies last."
