Google Pixel 4 Latest Leak Suggests Huge Front-facing Bezels, ToF Sensor, Dual Cameras: Report


Last month, Google released an official teaser of the upcoming Pixel 4 series smartphones that gave us a decent look at its rear camera design. This image, however, did not show what the phone looks like from any other angle. Now, newly leaked 360-degree renders have emerged for the Pixel 4 courtesy of iGeeksBlog in partnership with reputed leakster OnLeaks. These renders finally give us our first clear look at the Pixel 4 smartphones in incredible detail.

Google Pixel 4 Leaked Renders Reveal Improved Screen-To-Body Ratio

According to these renders of the Pixel 4, the phone will come with a 5.6-inch display and measure in at 147.0 x 68.9 x 8.2 mm. The rear camera bump extends out to 9.3mm in total. Google seems to have somewhat gotten on board with the modern design cue of extending the display closer to the edge of the device. The chin has certainly been reduced to an acceptable amount, but the top bezel is still a bit broad. At the end of the day, however, this is still better than the atrociously large notch we got with the Pixel 3XL (review).

Then again, the increased screen-to-body ratio of the Pixel 4 means there isn’t enough space to house dual front-firing speakers. The renders confirm the presence of two speaker grills at the bottom of the phone. We just hope the bottom speaker works in tandem with the top earpiece for some stereo effect.

At the back of the handset, we don’t see a fingerprint scanner. It is possible the extra bump at the top is used to house dedicated sensors for facial recognition. Previously, OnLeaks has also suggested that the space at the top of this screen might be used to house Soli Radar components.

Pixel 4 XL Leaked 360 degree Render

Just like its predecessor the Pixel 4 lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack. We do see a USB Type-C at the bottom for charging. Then there is the large camera bump at the back of the smartphone that houses two imaging sensors alongside an LED flash ad a ToF sensor. The top bezel at the front also seems to house dual selfie cameras.

ToF sensors are used to calculate depth information that helps with accurate portrait shots. The presence of such a sensor at the back of the Pixel 4 suggests the secondary camera could be either a wide-angle or a telephoto zoom camera.

While the accuracy of these renders cannot be determined, OnLeaks has a proven track record when it comes to leaks such as these. Regardless, it would be wise to remain a little skeptical.

Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4XL Expected Specifications

Going by what Google has offered with the Pixel 3 lineup, it is expected that the Google Pixel 4 will be provided with an OLED display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The Pixel 4XL is expected to feature a similar design as what we have seen in the above renders, and that phone will also come with an OLED panel but with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. Both phones will most likely be powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset.
