Google recently gave us an early look at the Pixel 4’s design, revealing a square camera module at the back and the departure from the signature dual-tone pattern. In case you were wondering what its larger sibling – the Pixel 4 XL – might look like, there is some good news. Leak-based 5K renders and a 360-degree video of the Pixel 4 XL have surfaced online, and they show the phone flaunting a square camera module with triple rear cameras and a glossy finish. On the front, there are dual cameras hidden by a thick notch.
The alleged Pixel 4 XL renders, which come courtesy of OnLeaks in collaboration with PriceBaba, show Google’s upcoming flagship flaunting a square camera module at the back, just like the one on the Pixel 4’s official render. One of the key highlights of the leaked renders are the triple rear cameras arranged in a diamond-like pattern with the LED flash sitting at the bottom. One of the sensors in the triple rear camera setup is tipped to be a 16-megapixel telephoto lens.
The dual-tone design that has been a mainstay on all Pixel phones released so far has gone, paving the way for a glossy rear finish. The phone’s rear panel is reportedly made out of glass. The 3.5mm headphone jack is again missing.
The lack of a physical fingerprint sensor suggests Google might finally add an in-display fingerprint sensor to its phones, starting with the Pixel 4 XL. But the biggest Pixel 4 XL design surprise is on the front, and to put it simply, it is not a good one.
Google has ditched the notch and has gone back to using a thick notch to house the dual front-facing cameras, earpiece, and two other sensors. One of them is tipped to be an IR sensor that might be used for face unlock. The chin at the bottom is considerably thinner than the one on its predecessor, but still thicker than today’s flagship standards.
