Let's start with the fresh batch of renders. Notable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) has once again teamed up with iGeeksBlog, this time to deliver a bunch of renders of the Pixel 4 based on the various leaks and rumors that are out there. As we can see in the image above, the rumored design does away with the notch and reverts back to a chunky bezel at the top of the phone.
We also see a thick square protrusion on the backside. This houses a triple camera setup arranged in a triangle, along with an LED flash. Beyond those things, there are no surprises...or are there? Well, check this out...
Another prominent leaker, Ice Universe, posted a couple of images that look like screen protectors, supposedly for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. In them, we see the usual assortment of sensor cutouts at the top for the cameras and ear speaker, but there is also an unusual oval cutout on the right side.
If that is indeed what Google is baking into the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, it will be interesting to see exactly how it will be utilized, both out of the box and once third-party developers start experimenting with it. That is getting a bit ahead of ourselves, as the oval cutout could be something entirely different as well.
We anticipate Google announcing the Pixel 4 family in October.
