The Google Pixel 4 has been subjected to numerous leaks in the past, so much so that there isn’t a lot left to be known at this point. The latest of these leaks happens to be one of the clearest renders we have seen yet. Infamous leakster Evan Blass has just tweeted an official-looking render of the fourth-gen Pixel smartphone that corroborates many of the design cues uncovered so far.
The leaked render shows-off the ‘Just Black’ color variant of the Pixel 4. A closer look reveals a white power button located just above the volume rockers on the right-hand side of the smartphone. We also get a good look at the display with curved edges just like its predecessor. Above the display is a black bar that is meant to house the Soli radar and face unlock sensors, although we can only see the selfie camera and pill-shaped earpiece grill. Apart from the top bar, the rest of the three sides posses rather minimal bezels.
The render also showcases a new wallpaper design with a large P and 4 taking up most of the real-estate. These symbols posses rather abstract patterns that make use of Google’s iconic colors along with a darker blue that was used in a previously leaked promo video and banner. The top right corner has LTE mentioned, with the bottom of the screen showcasing the Google Assistant bar underneath the Gmail, Google Maps, Google Photos, Chrome, and YouTube icons.
The back of the smartphone has a square-shaped camera module with two sensors and an LED flash. Furthermore, the entire rear panel has a single shade of black with the only exception being the grey “G” logo near the bottom. The lack of a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner suggests the phone will make use of an in-display sensor. It is also possible that Google is adopting Apple’s strategy of offering Face Unlock as the sole means of biometric security.
Google has scheduled a launch event for the Pixel 4 lineup and other smart devices on October 14 in New York. Leaks have confirmed that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be offered in three color options – Just Black, Clearly White, and Oh So Orange. The larger of the two is said to feature a 6.23-inch OLED with a 3040×1440p resolution, while the smaller is expected to feature a 5.7-inch Full HD resolution screen. Both phones will likely run on the Snapdragon 855 platform with 6GB of RAM. As for their batteries, the smaller Pixel 4 might feature a 2800mAh cell while the Pixel 4 XL is said to sport a 3,700mAh cell.
