Google just tweeted image of the Pixel 4, a smartphone that is not expected to ship until October. The tweet comes after the renders of the device were published in recent days, revealing a change in design language from Google's previous devices. "Wait 'til you see what it can do," the Pixel team tweeted.
The official image clearly shows at least two rear cameras and a third child in a large camera bumping on the phone's back. There's another tiny dot at the lower right of the camera module, which could be a microphone. Is the secondary lens for portraits or a wide-angle perspective? Who knows. Apart from that, we see what looks like a gray power button and the company's logo. For the first time ever on a pixel, there is no rear fingerprint scanner present on this device.
The last few pixels have been extensively leaked and sometimes formally reported, so this time the company is trying to control the next major flagship.
By the time Google got to unveiling the Pixel 3 last year, it had already been photographed, featured in lengthy hands-on videos, been put through camera tests, and even accidentally left behind in a Lyft. The company has never explained how the Pixel 3 made its way out into the world. It's been reported that a batch of devices were being dumped on the Ukranian black market last summer, leading to an investigation by Google and manufacturer Foxconn.
Renders published by @Onleaks and Pricebaba offers a good preview of the Pixel 4's external design, which is clearly headed in a new direction from years past. It's expected that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will come in sizes similar to their predecessors. Unbox Therapy 's Lewis Hilsenteger said in a video uploaded June 1
1th that the larger-sized Pixel 4 XL will not feature a notch; Google wants to instead move back to a more traditional top bezel that would bring the Pixel 4 closer in line with Apple's Face ID system.
There's also been Google that wants to build its Project Soli technology into 2019's Pixel phones. Soli is a small radar that can detect the slightest movement of a person's fingers in space above the device. Project Soli could offer a new way for Pixel 4 owners to interact with the device.
Google Assistant Wants to Launch on the Pixel 4 this fall. The updated Assistant is looking for a better and better way to communicate with you.
