Google's upcoming Pixel 4 XL has surfaced in a new leak comprising of high-quality renders and a 360-degree video. The leak has been shared by an online publication Pricebaba in collaboration with reliable tipster @OnLeaks. These renders offer a clear look at the next-gen Android flagship from different angles.
Starting with the first panel, the Pixel 4 XL leak corroborates previous claims that it would be having a "big forehead". It essentially means a bigger top bezel which is odd for a 2019 Android flagship as competitor phones feature either a notched or punch-hole display. Since it is quite a big bezel, Google has used it for placing the dual selfie camera setup, microphone, and other sensors including Soli Radar chip components. It is expected to have a 6.25-inch tall display with no words on the resolution from the tipster.
The back panel has a square-shaped camera module with triple rear cameras and LED flash. This is something which Google has confirmed by tweeting official Pixel 4 render last month. This is not exactly a new design as we have seen Huawei smartphone with a similar square module. Even the 2019 Apple iPhones are rumored to feature the same design approach. The back panel has nothing else except for the "G" logo at the bottom. It suggests that there will be an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The right side of the Pixel 4 XL will have a power button and volume rockers. The power button will have a different color than the rest of the phone which has started to become a Pixel signature design. There is a USB Type-C port at the bottom along with speaker grills. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is not surprising as Google ditched it last year itself.
The Pixel 4 XL is reported to have 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2mm dimensions but a 9.3mm thickness if we include the camera bump too. It means the device will be taller and relatively thicker than the competition. Other expected specs include Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 4GB RAM, and Android Q out of the box.
