“The leak suggests that the next Google Pixel smartphone will also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner”
A new leaked image has surfaced online that allegedly reveals the design of Google’s upcoming Pixel 4 XL. According to the image, the latest flagship from Google will feature a nearly bezel-less design on the front, with a punch-hole display. The leak reveals that the phone will use a cutout on its display to house the dual selfie cameras. The design looks similar to the Galaxy S10+ (review), but with the addition of two front firing speakers.
We have seen leaked images of the Pixel 4 before, all of them carrying a full-screen display with slim bezels. However, the previous leak did not feature a camera cutout on the screen. It looks like Google may be following Samsung’s footsteps, that is, if this turns out to be true. Therefore, take all of this with a pinch of salt. That’s not all though, as the image also shows that the device has an oval shaped camera setup at the back. This could mean that the next Pixel could feature dual-rear cameras.
You may have also noticed that the leaked image doesn’t show a fingerprint scanner at the back. This is probably because the Pixel 4 will use an in-display fingerprint scanner. Hopefully by then, the technology will be on par with the traditional biometric scanners. The folks over at PhoneArena have come up with a render that better shows the phone, and it does look nice with the slim bezels.
Also, if Google does move to a dual-rear camera setup, we can expect amazing improvements in camera. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with the single camera already do exceptional compared to dual and triple camera phones, imagine what Google can do with two cameras. The only thing that a lot of people didn’t like about the Pixel 3 XL (review), was the ugly notch. Even the punch-hole camera design looks bigger than the one found on the Galaxy S10 series, but perhaps Google will make some changes.
The leakster notes that this is the Pixel 4 XL, which begs the question. What is the difference between the XL and standard Pixel 4? Well, we should find out later this year.
