Google Pixel 4 XL renders show dual selfie shooters (and triple rear cameras?)
We saw the first massive Google Pixel 4 leak last month, with Google confirming the leak shortly thereafter. Now, it looks like the Pixel 4 XL has surfaced online, with renders showing dual selfie cameras and what appears to be a triple rear camera setup.
The leaks appeared online via PriceBaba and OnLeaks, giving us a comprehensive look at the phone from all angles. More specifically, we see a substantial top bezel on the front hosting what appears to be two cameras and another sensor. This sensor could either be a proximity sensor or a new sensor for rumored face unlock functionality. Twitter tipster Max J. notes that we’re looking at a gesture sensor though, presumably related Google’s Project Soli initiative. OnLeaks also notes that there’s a blank area on the right side of the top bezel, potentially housing the facial recognition sensors.
We also see a slim bezel at the bottom of the Google Pixel 4 XL render, with no visible fingerprint scanner mounted here. These renders also fail to show a rear fingerprint scanner, suggesting that Google is either going all-in on face unlock or adopting an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Look at the back and you’ll find two main cameras, along with what appears to be a much smaller camera above the two main shooters. The size suggests we’re not looking at a traditional shooter or ultra-wide angle camera here, but rather something akin to a 3D ToF camera. For what it’s worth, we’ve also seen Honor pack a dedicated rear macro camera that’s smaller than the main sensors on its Honor 20 series.
In terms of I/O, these latest renders show a USB-C port and speaker grilles at the bottom (no front-facing speakers here), and a volume rocker and white power button on the right. We don’t see a 3.5mm port here, unfortunately. There’s no Google Assistant key either, although Google generally uses squeeze gestures to summon the voice assistant.
Otherwise, the outlet and leaker note that the Google Pixel 4 XL rear camera bump is actually smaller than the renders make it out to be. The duo add that the Pixel 4 XL measures in at 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2mm, compared to the Pixel 3 XL‘s 158.0 x 76.7 x 7.9mm dimensions. So you’re looking at a taller but narrower device than last year’s model if this leak is to be believed (although OnLeaks has a great track record).
