Google Pixel 4 design was just confirmed by Google

In a surprise move, Google just confirmed the design of the Google Pixel 4.

In a surprising move, Google just confirmed the Google Pixel 4 design months ahead of its expected launch.

After a deluge of leaks related to the design of the Pixel 4, it seems Google decided to get ahead of the game and just release a photo of the device. Google paired the photo with a tongue-in-cheek statement of “since there seems to be some interest…”

Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go! Wait ’til you see what it can do. #Pixel4

The design confirms earlier speculation that the Google Pixel 4 would come with a new camera setup, eschewing the single-sensor system of previous generations. Instead, the Pixel 4 appears to have two camera lenses as well as a third sensor, which might be the assumed spectral sensor.

The design also confirms no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for the Pixel 4. There might be an in-display sensor instead.

Google didn’t show the front of the device so we don’t have any idea of what the display might look like or how many sensors are on the front. However, speculation is that there will be many front-facing camera sensors to enable a Face ID-like recognition system.

Google revealing the phone this early (we don’t expect it to launch until October, roughly four months from now) is a very interesting move. It might have made this decision due to the onslaught of leaks related to the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL last year, which saw early prototypes of the larger device sold on the black market. Google’s strategy now might be to get ahead of the leaks and just be forthright with information.
