In what can be termed highly unusual and a very very rare occurrence for a device manufacturer, Google has sort of just confirmed the recently leaked Pixel 4 render by OnLeaks is genuine. It not only did that but also released an official render alongside.
The confirmation was made on Twitter by the official Made by Google (@madebygoogle) account. The attached render shows the Pixel 4 in black with its square-shaped camera module. This render also gives us a clearer look at the camera module and we can confirm it houses two cameras.
The Pixel 3 (and Pixel 3 XL) is one of the best camera phones out there and it has a single rear camera. Now that Google is adding an extra sensor, we can’t wait to have our minds blown. Google knows we are excited and even teases us by saying “Wait ’til you see what it can do”.
The rear cameras are on opposite sides of each other while the LED flash is at the bottom and what should be the laser focus module is at the top. There is also a smaller hole a few millimeters to the right of the flash. We are not sure but that might be a hole for a secondary microphone.
There is no fingerprint scanner on the rear which might be a hint that it will have an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Pixel 4 is also shown to have a white power button that sits above the volume rocker which is painted black.
However, Google is keeping the design of the front of the phone a secret. OnLeaks’s render shows there is a small slit at the top of the screen for the earpiece and presumes the phone has a notch. We don’t know how wide or deep it is but we hope Google has learned its lesson with regards to the ridiculous notch of the Pixel 3 XL.
Snapdragon 855 processor and run Android Q out of the box. It should also have wireless charging like its predecessor.
The Google Pixel 4 is still months away from release. If we are to go by last year’s release date, then we still have to wait four more months. Nevertheless, Google seems to be bad at keeping its devices a secret (the Pixel 3a leaked months before release) and if it still hasn’t plugged those leaks yet, we might have more leaks before the official launch!
Google isn’t the only one adopting a square camera module this year, the 2019 iPhones are also coming with the same design. Interesting times we are in, interesting times.
