The first CAD renders of the upcoming Google Pixel 4 have been released. And…well, they look a lot like the iPhone 11's recent render leaks that we've seen. Particularly that camera bump on the upper-left hand side.
On the back of the Pixel 4, in this leaked CAD render, you can see a square camera bump, that looks very similar to the new iPhone's, but it also looks similar to the Huawei Mate 20's from last year – though Huawei had its camera bump in the center. This would likely hold more than one camera, as there is a lot of space, and looking at this render, there's one camera in the upper-left hand corner. The other sensors just don't need that much space.
Other things to note with this render include, there will likely be an under-display fingerprint sensor. Google has typically had the fingerprint sensor on the back. But it looks like with the Pixel 4, it's going to be going under-display.
It also doesn't look like we'll be getting dual front-facing speakers. There is still a speaker at the top – that earpiece looks pretty large to be just an earpiece. But there doesn't appear to be one at the bottom of the display. So Google is likely doing a down-firing speaker as the main speaker. While we're on the topic of audio, it doesn't look like the headphone jack is returning. That may just be a Pixel 3a feature (possibly Pixel 4a too?).
While we can't see the display on the pixel 4, it is likely going to have a notch once again. We also can't see the front-facing camera, but it would be pretty weird for Google to ditch that – or even go with a pop-up camera over having one on the front of the phone, since there is still an earpiece there.
There's still a lot of questions to be answered about the Google Pixel 4. And many of these won't be answered until Google unveils it in October.
This is a CAD render of the Google Pixel 4. That means that it was put together by the dimensions that Onleaks received from Google, or possibly some of its partners. What that means is that this may not be the correct design, 100-percent. There might be a few changes that are not included here. As we've seen with some other recent phones, the CAD renders are mostly accurate, but not 100-percent accurate. So keep that in mind for things like the cameras, the notch, the display, etc.
Google is slated to launch the Pixel 4 in October, which is when it usually unveils its newest set of smartphones and other hardware. So we still have about four months until we see this device. And the rumor mill is just getting started. It's bound to be a pretty big change in design and features for Google. But there's two things that most are hoping change, and that's the number of cameras (many would love a wide-angle and/or a telephoto to be added) and adding more RAM to the Pixel 4.
