A series of new leaked images from Google's new Pixel 4 smartphone has surfaced on the web, showing something we expected: it will have a large bezel on top of the phone.
The leaked images come from the Ice Universe (via 9to5Google ) on Twitter and show the front of the phone. The images seem to confirm what we've suspected so far, based on the phone's rendering and dimensions: There are some larger forehead and chin-stops that are larger than comparable phones like the S10 Plus or the OnePlus 7 Pro. These covers cover the various sensors and front-facing cameras that would otherwise have been hidden with a notch or pop-up camera.

A suspicion is that the phone will be equipped with a motion detection technology called Project Soli, which uses radar, to recognize fine movements over it. Due to the size of these frames Google seems to need a lot of space for the required sensors.
In addition to the images on the front screen, @OnLeaks and iGeeksBlog have created a series of renderings for the upcoming phone that also show the larger frames.
Google officially unveiled the phone in June after leaked images surfaced on the web, but not on the front of the device. This picture showed the great camera flatness and the sensors, and the phone was discovered in the wild. With this latest leak, Google may unveil another official image.
