We're no at that point in the year when both Apple and Google have unveiled their flagship smartphones, so we know what the hardware landscape will look like for the next year. So let's take some time to compare the iPhone 11 and the Pixel 4, and see how the technology packed into reach one stacks up.

What you'll notice is that going through the specs is that the two devices are both very similar and quite different. Both focus heavily on photography, and both pack high-performance cameras capable of excellent low-light photography.

The biggest and most noticeable difference is price. It's clear that Google is looking at putting a price pressure of Apple with the hopes of both keeping Pixel users using Pixel hardware, and perhaps poaching some iPhone owners who might be sitting on the fence in terms of which camp they want to be in.
