The Google Pixel 4 series of smartphones are expected to go official in October. Last week, well ahead of the launch, Pricebaba collaborated with popular tipster OnLeaks to share exclusive renders of the upcoming Pixel 4. The renders were based on an early prototype of the Pixel 4, and revealed that it will feature a square-shaped rear camera module. Riding on the hype that was created through the Pixel 4 renders, Google took to Twitter to share an official render of the phone. The image shows that the Pixel 4 will indeed sport a refreshed design and as speculated, is now confirmed to be equipped with dual rear cameras.
The official image shared by Google’s Twitter account reveals that the Pixel 4 won’t be sporting a two-tone design like previous Pixel smartphones. The image also suggests that its entire rear shell is made out of glass.

At the top-left corner of the Pixel 4’s back panel is a square-shaped camera bump that includes a horizontally arranged dual camera lenses, a microphone and a LED flash. The Pixel 4’s official image is nearly identical to the renders shared by us. For the last three generations, Pixel phones have only featured a single rear camera, while the competition boasted triple and even quad rear cameras.
The right edge of the phone has a power button followed by a volume rocker. There is no rear-facing fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 4. This suggests that the Pixel 4 could be the first phone from the company to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. There is also a possibility that the smartphone may not feature a fingerprint scanner at all, and may rely on advanced facial recognition like the iPhone instead. Speaking of iPhones, the 2019 iPhones that are expected to debut in September are also expected to sport square-shaped camera module for the rear cameras.
There is not much information available on the specifications of the Google Pixel 4. In the recent past, the smartphone was spotted with the Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM on Geekbench. The handset is likely to come preloaded with the upcoming Android Q OS.
