Last month, we caught the first glimpse of the first credible renders of the upcoming Pixel 4. Now, the first credible renders of the Pixel 4 XL along with a 360-degree video has surfaced online. The renders are published by popular leaker @OnLeaks with collaboration with PriceBaba.
The previous Pixel 4 leaks were so bad that Google interfered to showcase its own official renders. While we don’t expect the same to happen for the XL variant as we already have the official design and the renders just fill in a couple of blanks. From previous renders, Google confirmed the Pixel flagships to come with a square bulge that house the cameras. But the new renders suggest a different design assuming Google chooses this for the final product.
The renders reveal the Pixel 4 XL to ditch the notch design and instead go for a large forehead and a small chin that reminds us of the iPhone XS without the display notch. The chunky top bezels have a speaker grill and the dual cameras. Although the official specifications are not available, the front units could be a Time of Flight (ToF) that is rumored to be included in the Pixel 4 XL for a gesture control system. Also, it might be there to aid the biometric face unlock feature hinted in Android Q Beta.
The renders show no front-firing speaker or any other bottom speaker on the tiny chin. The device will sport a bottom-firing speaker with a USB Type-C port on the lower edge. The rear of the handset shows a square bump with a triple camera setup with one of the sensors rumored to be a 16MP telephoto zoom lens and other a ToF sensor. It also matches with the recently leaked real-life photos of the Pixel 4. There is no fingerprint scanner on sight which means the Google would include an in-screen fingerprint reader or one embedded on the power button.
The back of the phone will still be made of glass ensuring that wireless charging feature is retained. The device reportedly measures 6.25 inch with OnLeaks claiming the measurements of the Pixel 4 XL to be 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2 mm with an additional thickness of 9.3mm with the camera bump.
According to a Version release schedule timeline, the Google Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL will bb arriving on October 4 following a keynote. Google has a good history regarding leaks of Pixel phones, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see more in the coming weeks.
