Google Pixel 4 is in news again. In the past couple of weeks a steady stream of rumours surrounding Google’s next flagship smartphone – Pixel 4 – has kept everyone excited about the phone. Most report so far have painted a uniform picture of the device indicating that the Pixel 4 would come with a bezel-less design with a punch hole display in the front and a dual rear camera setup at the back. But now, a new report threatens to change that perception.
According to the 5K image renders of the upcoming Pixel 4 shared by serial tipster OnLeaks in partnership with PriceBaba, Google’s flagship smartphone would look quite similar to the Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11. The leaked images of the Pixel 4 show a squarish bump on the rear side of the phone which seems to house the dual rear camera setup of the phone. The design and the placement of the camera bump looks quite similar to images of the iPhone 11 that we have seen so far.
The only difference seems to be of the camera module. While the successors to the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max are expected to sport a triple rear camera setup and an LED flash that will be tucked inside the notoriously famous square camera bump (iPhone XR succcessor is likley to sport a dual rear camera setup and the bump), the Pixel 4 is touted to come with a dual rear camera setup – first in a Pixel smartphone – that will be placed inside the bump.
The Pixel 4 renders – apart from divulging in camera design – also differentiate from previous leaks in terms of the placement of the fingerprint sensor. While some reports in the past have hinted towards a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, others, particularly from a YouTube channel called Front Page Tech have indicated that Pixel 4 would come with a button-less design and that it would come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. New report by the tipster indicates a similar possibility. However, Google could also opt for a 3D face unlock module in the upcoming Pixel 4.
In terms of the overall design, the Pixel 4 is likely to come with two buttons that will be placed on the right side of the device. While one is expected to control the volume levels, the other is likely to be the power control button. Then there is the case of the speakers. Previous reports have indicated that the upcoming Pixel 4 would come with two front firing speakers. However, the report by the tipster indicates that the Pixel 4 would come with two speaker grille that would be placed on either side of the USB-C port. And in case you were wondering what happened to the jack…I mean the the 3.5mm port… it remains missing in the Pixel 4 as well. In addition to this, the placement of the earpiece in the images indicates that Google will retain the notch in Pixel 4, which means that it might not come with a punch hole display.
Separately, the upcoming Google Pixel 4 is likely to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and sport up to 6GB RAM. It is expected to run on Android Q and come with Google Assistant Q. Having said so, it is important to note that all these details should be taken with a pinch of salt and we will have to wait from an official word from Google to know more about the device.
