Pixel 4 To Get Big Bezel, Motion Gestures

It is unclear yet whether Google plans to release the Pixel 4 series in just two colours, but a black version is definitely on the way.

By this point, we've seen several concepts and renders of Google's upcoming Pixel 4 series. The company had already shared the rear design of the smartphone that reveals a dual-camera setup. Now notable tipster OnLeaks has shared new 5K renders of smaller Pixel 4, which reveal it's almost identical to its bigger sibling. According to the report, one of these lenses is supposedly a Face Unlock camera.

Per the Verge, the leaked images (from prolific tipster Ice Universe, via 9to5Google) purport to show mockups for screen protectors from the forthcoming line of phones. The cutout in the middle is presumably for the earpiece, while the cutout on the right seems rather mysterious. It uses radar tech for gesture-based controls.

For readers who do not know, Project Soli is a gesture recognition technology that makes use of radio waves to determine the range, angle or velocity of objects nearby. However, there is still no confirmation regarding this. The renders also suggest a lack of front-firing stereo speakers.

They also account for three of the top five grossing domestic release of all time, unadjusted for inflation. At the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel made a few announcements - some expected, others surprising.


New leaks show Pixel 4 front design. There is a USB Type-C port located at the bottom, and the headphone jack is missing too.

The phone measures about 147.0 x 68.9 x 8.2 mm. But owners of Pixel 3 XL phones may be happy to see that this could confirm the giant notch located on the top of the device will be going the way of the dodo in future generations, at least. Under the hood, the Pixel 4 is expected to be powered by flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM.

The larger Pixel 4 XL has been the star of most Pixel 4 leaks lately, but this time we're getting a detailed look at the smaller Pixel 4 in a set of CAD renders.
