It has been over a week since Google took wraps off the affordable Pixel 3a lineup which means the complete focus is now on next-gen flagship phones. These are expected to be called Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL with a few rumors already surfacing online. It is time for a new leak detailing Pixel 4 design that will make them the most stunning Pixel phones yet.
The leak has been shared by YouTube channel Front Page Tech which also revealed crucial details about Pixel 3's design last year. It mentions that the source behind the leak is "credible and well-vetted". It has been claimed that Google will be offering Pixel 4 with a full-screen display with a punch-hole selfie camera and no bezels. The design is said to be similar to what Samsung has offered with Galaxy S10 which means there will be an in-display fingerprint scanner as well.
If this turns out to be true, it will be a big shift in the Pixel design language since Google debuted it. There is a good reason to believe the same as Pixel 3 XL received a lot of negative feedback for its overall design and bigger notch. It even failed to sell in high numbers which forced Google to come up with Pixel 3a offering to generate some more sales.
But the leak mentions one more thing which seems quite unbelievable at this point. It claims that Pixel 4 will not be featuring any physical buttons and instead will come with touch-sensitive capacitive buttons. It says Google will make use of Active Edge feature to deliver button functions without actually offering clickable buttons. You can check out the complete video below:
