“Google Pixel 4 renders suggest it will come with a notch-toting display, in-display fingerprint sensor, and at least dual rear cameras”
Google’s next-gen Pixel series smartphone, likely to be called Pixel 4, has been in the news every now and then, with leaks sporadically giving us tidbits of information about what to expect from them. Interestingly, the new leak is quite different from the ones. Previous leaks had claimed that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will ditch the physical hardware buttons for capacitative buttons and sport punch-hole display to accommodate the dual selfie cameras, just like the Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphone. Now, Pricebaba — in association with OnLeaks, who has a pretty awesome track record with leaks — has published 5K Pixel 4 renders based on “early prototyping schematics.”
The images reveal that the Pixel 4 will have a rear camera module similar to that of the alleged iPhone XI. Unlike the current generation of Pixel series phone, the handset seems to have a big square-shaped camera module at the top-right corner. Unlike the Pixel phones so far, which have a single rear camera module, the Pixel 4 is said to feature at least two camera sensors, and perhaps even three, the report says. Since there is no fingerprint sensor cut-out on the back panel, it’s believed that an in-display fingerprint sensor or maybe a 3D face unlock system will be used this time around.
While the fascia of the Pixel 4 isn’t very clear in the schematics-based renders, the earpiece on top of the display suggests that there will be a notch. It’ll be interesting to see if the screen cut-out will be as wide as that of the Pixel 3 XL. The report further reveals that the Pixel 4 will not have dual front speakers, which has been a trademark of Google smartphones over the years. The speakers will be relocated to the left edge of the smartphone, while on the right spine is said to have a volume rocker and power button.
The 3.5mm headphone jack will be missing from Google’s flagship, the USB Type-C port will be at the bottom frame for charging. Moreover, previous rumours have revealed that the handset will be IP68 certified for water- and dust-resistance, sport a larger battery paired with faster charging, and the usual 4G LTE networks. We can expect wireless charging, Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC, a bump in RAM and storage configurations, and improved dual-SIM connectivity.
