A month ago Google launched the budget-friendly offering of their flagship pixel series, the Pixel 3a &3a XL in Google I/O 2019 held at California. Apparently, now all eyes are on their upcoming flagship, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. According to the latest reports, the schematics of these upcoming Pixel smartphones have been leaked online. However, since the renders are based on prototypes, there might be changes in the original product.
Looking at the leaked renders, the first thing that will come to our mind is the unusually large square camera bump similar to that on the leaked renders of Apple iPhone XI, and the absence of a physical fingerprint sensor. The large size of the camera bump indicates that there will be multiple cameras in the rear. Guessing from the size of the square, we are expecting a triple camera setup in the rear, for the least. The Pixel smartphones are known for their camera performance, and looking at the render it seems Google will be stepping up its game in the camera segment.
The missing fingerprint sensors in the leaked render indicates that Google might skip the physical sensor for either an in-display fingerprint sensor or 3D face-unlock. There are also chances that the new Pixel devices will be coming with both the before mentioned unlocking features.
In the render, the earpiece is placed on top of the screen, which indicates that Google might retain the notch. Coming to other details, there are two speaker grills on both sides of the USB Type-C port, which means that the upcoming Pixel 4 smartphones will be ditching the front facing speaker design. The volume and power button is placed at the right edge while the left edge is bare. Also, there is no 3.4mm audio jack according to the render.
While there isn’t much information available about the specs of the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, some reports suggest that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Google usually launches their flagships in October and it is expected that they will be doing the same with the Pixel 4 too.
