Leaked Pixel 4 renders could be our best look yet at Google’s new flagships
Google’s decision to tease its new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL design months ahead of the phones’ official announcement was bizarre, to say the least. Perhaps part of the idea behind the move was to diminish interest in any further Pixel 4 leaks since the company’s new flagship smartphone design would be a matter of record. Well, if that was the intention then Google failed miserably because the leaks are still flowing, and Android fans are still very interested in them. After all, Google’s official Pixel 4 teaser did little more than confirm the design of the rear camera array that we first saw leaked in renders based on stolen Pixel 4 design files. Google’s shadowy teaser also didn’t give us a look at the front of the phone, so all we have to go on are the various rumors and reports we’ve seen thus far.
The most recent information out there suggests that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will feature a slightly better screen-to-body ratio than earlier Pixel phones, but they still won’t even come close to approaching other top flagship phones out there. According to rumors, the new Google phones will still have pretty thick bezels both above and below the screen, at least by today’s standards. Of course, it’s also possible that Google could use a notch design like the one we currently see on the Pixel 3 XL, and a new set of leaked renders suggest that’s exactly what the company decided to do with its upcoming next-generation Pixel smartphones.
