There is a single camera at the rear which is surprising for the smartphone in 2019. However, rumours point that the sensor is a 48MP one sourced from Sony.

There is no visible fingerprint sensor on the Moto Z4, which means it will likely sport a under display one.

Google Pixel 4 XL Leaked. Will Feature Dual Rear Cameras & Punch-hole Display!

Published

It’s the time of the year when we slowly start getting leaks from multiple sources regarding the upcoming Pixel devices. The rumor mill has started churning out leaks of the most anticipated smartphone of the year, the Google Pixel 4 XL.

The last generation Pixel devices indeed got leaked multiple times that the brand itself made a teaser video regarding the leaks. While everyone was expecting a Pixel 3 Ultra which apparently didn’t happen, the design language of the Pixel 3 XL didn’t really attract the masses with its gigantic notch.

If the leaked images are to be believed, the Pixel 4 XL will be featuring the punch-hole display which quite resembles the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The bezels are comparatively thinner this time which improves the overall look and feel of the device. We hope the brand does not skip on the stereo speakers for minimizing the bezels.

On the rear, it appears like there will be dual horizontally stacked rear cameras which are quite surprising considering the history of the brand which managed to achieve portrait mode with a single lens. This second lens could also be a wide-angle lens. The LED flash is mounted to the right of the dual rear cameras.

There is no physical fingerprint scanner on the device. In fact, the handset will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The unknown factor is the nature of the scanner (optical or ultrasonic). It is also possible for the fingerprint sensor to be embedded into the power button.

As of now, further information regarding Pixel 4 is not known. There is no verified information if the leaked image is legitimate or not yet. If the device actually turns out to be like the one on the leaked image, we expect it to actually get positive feedback. More leaks will be unfolding in the upcoming days. Stay tuned for updates.
