Last month, Google surprisingly gave us the first sneak peek of its upcoming Google Pixel 4, confirming the previous leaks. This has been the first time by the search engine giant to give a sneak peek of its flagship smartphone three months ahead of the launch — thanks to the never-ending leaks. Despite the official confirmation from Google, leaks appear to be not stopping yet. Upcoming Google Pixel 4 XL renders have surfaced online that gave us everything on what to expect from the next Pixel device — that is likely set to launch this October.
With the courtesy of Onleaks partnered with Pricebaba, they have put up the official renders of the much anticipated Google Pixel 4 XL. The renders showcased reveals the next flagship phone on all sides and angles, starting on the front — the device features a big chunky bezel on the top, which interestingly looks outdated but is still better than the Pixel 3 XL’s ugly notch. Under the bezel, it appears to be having two front-facing cameras, similar to the previous iteration and other significant sensors as well, which are believed to be utilized for Face recognition for authentication. Apart from the notable bezel on top, the display appears to be full screen with much lesser bezels on the other three sides of the display.
On the rear, the Google Pixel 4 renders reveal two primary cameras along with a smaller sensor, which is likely to be a depth sensing sensor. In the past, Google had never opted for either dual or triple rear sensors but relied on a single camera sensor powered with computational photography, and coupled with Night Sight made the Pixel 2 and 3 series camera a significant benchmark in the smartphone industry, when it comes to camera quality. However, going by the renders, it appears Google is also making its way with multiple sensors to achieve more in photography and to take on the competition.
And, also one more significant change with the design of the Google Pixel 4 XL is that the conventional rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is nowhere to be seen — meaning the Mountain View giant might have totally ditched the sensor just like Apple. And, could rely on facial recognition tech or we can expect an in-display fingerprint sensor, only time will tell in the coming weeks of what Google is upto.
On the I/O front, the renders indicate a USB type-C port and no front stereo speakers grill like the earlier Pixel devices and the conventional volume rockers and power button can be seen. Like the previous Pixel 3 XL device, the Pixel 4 XL also doesn’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. If these renders are believed to be accurate, then we can expect a much slimmer Pixel device and preferably a good looking Google device indeed, when compared to last year flagship. Regardless, the Google Pixel 4 and the 4 XL will be up for launch in October along with the full release of Google’s latest Android Q operating system as well.
