Is this really the Google Pixel 4?

Is this really the Google Pixel 4?”

Hands on with Google Pixel 4, Google Pixel 4 XL metallic mock-ups pointing at a design similar to the iPhone 11 (iPhone XI rumors, leaks).

Previous year the Google Pixel 3 leaked so much we knew everything about it long before it was announced. The last model is only a mid-range phone but the Pixel 4 is expected to be a major flagship upgrade.

The first thing to notice is Google's departure from using a single rear camera to a multi-camera setup.

The Pixel 3a XL is certainly a good deal at US$479 with its excellent cameras and its decent battery life, but Google has made some compromises to keep the price down.

Also, the square glass enclosure on the back would make it resemble Apple's reported efforts for the next iPhone. Opting to punch-hole display on the front of the Pixel 4 device seems to be a quite interesting move from Google as we have seen on the Samsung Galaxy devices and Huawei/Honor devices launched this year.

Another render showed two speaker grills on the edge at either side of the USB-C port, OnLeaks said - which means the front-face speakers could be abandoned in the next Pixel flagship. We aren't so sure of that one but after introducing wireless charging and their Pixel Stand a year ago it would be odd for the rear of the device to not be glass and support Qi charging once again. The phone may already run on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and at least 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage plus Android Q. Google always installs the newest Android dessert on whatever new Pixel phone is released so expect this to be powered by the new "Q" platform.
