Possibly Pixel 4? Quite close to Pixel 3, possibly too close?

I really wish they were releasing in July, knowing what their camera efforts, and the fact that they have some ex HTC bods, I am really eager to see if this time they can get the rest of the phone right. They seemed to get more wrong than right with the Pixel 2. My wish list:
improved camera;
stereo audio recording;
wireless charging;
decent screen;
headphones included.

Sounds like a solid investment due to the versatility of those cameras..... Better portrait, better VR and possibly better AR.

Lets see if they can bring out the full potential of this technology.

for better AR maybe?
