We’re expecting the Google Pixel 4 to make an appearance later this year, and now we finally have a glimpse of how the Pixel 4 XL will look like.
A new render of the phone is out and, based on both official news and leaked information, it looks quite different from the Pixel 3 XL. According to the renders, the gigantic notch blighting the 3 XL’s clean lines will not be making an appearance on the Pixel 4 XL.
According to the @OnLeaks renders for pricebaba.com, the Pixel 4 XL is supposed to feature a sizable bezel around the top of the phone. The smartphone will also integrate a pair of camera lenses and a speaker.
However, people don’t sound very happy with the smartphone’s design: the comments on the Twitter post are filled with complains regarding its look, which, according to users, is simply ‘outdated’.
We can find a smaller bezel at the bottom of the screen, while the back hosts a new camera lens array confined inside a large section in the top left.
The render does not show any fingerprint sensor, suggesting Google will integrate an in-display sensor, or make use of facial recognition. Both of these features are not surprising: they’ve been rumored to feature on the device a few times before.
There’s no speaker in sight on the front either so, judging solely on these render, it seems like Pixel 4 XL will not incorporate them. We can find them at the bottom of the phone instead, next to the USB Type-C.
Rumors also point out that Pixel 4 XL will feature a special time-of-flight sensor on the front, in order to offer a gesture control system.
The renders have not been confirmed by Google, however, we can see in them a number of elements the company has confirmed before.
The Google Pixel 4 and 4XL models are expected to arrive in October.
