About a couple of weeks ago, Google did the unexpected by sharing official Pixel 4 renders way ahead of the official release and confirmed the much talked about square camera module design. It did not reveal the full design of the upcoming Android flagship and if you have been wondering what it might look like, a new report has emerged sharing a bunch of Pixel 4 renders showing everything including color variants.
The report is coming from an Indian online publication IndiaShopps citing sources closer to Google's Pixel smartphone development team. These renders do not reveal anything new but corroborate many of the previous leaks and speculations. The front panel is shown with a taller display with neither a notch nor in-display selfie camera. It means you will still find the front camera housed inside the top bezel. This also results in the top bezel being relatively bigger than other three bezels.
It is the Pixel 4 back panel where most of the things are going on. On the top left corner, you can see the square-shaped rear camera module with three camera sensors. This is the first time Google will be using multiple sensors instead of relying on a single sensor. The LED flash has also been placed inside the module but towards the bottom part of it.
Other than the camera module and the "G" logo at the bottom, the back panel is completely clean. There is no fingerprint scanner which means Pixel 4 will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Google is also expected to make use of an advanced facial recognition tech like Face ID on modern iPhones.
If you might have noticed, Pixel 4 has been shown in three color variants. These include the standard Black and White options but also a completely new Mint Green color variant. It seems like Google want to make its Pixel 4 smartphones more appealing to more users, especially those who prefer such color options. We have seen Apple use such funky and bright color options with the likes of iPhone 5c and iPhone XR and has even received a good response.
Unfortunately, the report does not mention anything about the possible Pixel 4 specs, pricing, and availability. We are expecting these new flagships to get official sometime in October 2019. It is the usual time for Google's hardware event but we will keep you updated on any information that will become available.
