Google officially launched its pair of Pixel 4 phones overnight, after months of leaks.

Both phones run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with a Pixel Neural Core chip, have 6GB of memory, and consumers will have storage options of 64GB and 128GB.

The difference between the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL is in the screen and battery specs. The smaller Pixel 4 has a 2,800mAh battery and a 5.7-inch OLED display, while the bigger Pixel 4 XL has a 3,700mAh battery and a 6.3-inch display.

Purchasing from Google directly will cost AU$1,050 for the 64GB Pixel 4, and AU$1,200 for the 128GB option. For the Pixel 4 XL, 64GB is set at AU$1,280, with the larger 128GB to cost AU$1,430.


Thanks to the telco's recent plan shake-up, Australia's incumbent telco has the easiest pricing to work out. The phones are available on top of four plans from the carrier: 15GB of data for AU$50 a month, 60GB at AU$60 per month, 100GB for AU$80 a month, and 150GB for AU$100 a month.

The separate device repayment that is broken down over 2 or 3 years is listed below.



Vodafone is the next easiest to comprehend, with the addition of a 12 month repayment option.

The telco offers plans at 5GB for AU$35, 30GB for AU$45, 80GB for AU$55, and 120GB for $65.



In a throwback to plans of yesteryear, Optus still offers differentiated handset repayments based on the size of the plan taken up.

The 4GB plan costs AU$45 a month, 60GB is AU$65, 80GB is AU$85, the 100GB promotional plan is AU$89 a month, the first 200GB plan is AU$105 per month -- which includes 2GB of roaming data each month -- and the second 200GB plan is AU$125 per month with 4GB of roaming data included.

At the time of writing, Optus is also offering an extra 20GB for its 80GB plan.
