The alleged Google Pixel 4 has just surfaced yet again. This time around, the leak comes from a UK-based blog, This Teen Tech. Do take this leak with a grain of salt, even though the design looks quite accurate.

This device features a rather large forehead, and almost no "chin", as previous leaks suggested. The placement of the front-facing camera also seems to be accurate. An earpiece is also visible here, as are those rounded display corners.

Unfortunately, only one image of the phone surfaced, so we can't see it from all angles. This is not the first time the Pixel 4 appeared in the wild, though. It surfaced a couple of times in both real life images and renders, so we know what to expect.

The Google Pixel 4 will come in two flavors, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Both phones will ship with flagship processors, either the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 855 Plus. Both devices will be made out of metal and glass, and include an in-display or side-facing fingerprint scanner. An optical in-display fingerprint scanner will probably be included.

Those two phones will probably look identical, save for the size difference. The "forehead" is that large because it will house an all-new 3D facial recognition system. In addition to that, the Project Soli radar chip will be included, a small speaker grill, and a selfie camera.

CAD-based renders that surfaced earlier confirmed the Pixel 4 design, pretty much. Google's logo will be placed on the back, along with cameras. Two rear-facing cameras will sit in the top-left corner of the phone's back. All the physical buttons will sit on the right, it seems.

A 3.5mm headphone jack will not be a part of the package, only a Type-C USB port. The Pixel 4 series is expected to have great cameras, just their predecessors, though not all details are known just yet.

Both phones are expected to sport at least 6GB of RAM, while Android Q will come pre-installed. Android Q will probably debut with these two smartphones, as far as a pre-installed variant is concerned.

Fast charging will be included in the package, as will wireless charging. The two phones are expected to arrive in October, though nothing has been confirmed just yet. Pre-orders are expected to kick off right after the event, while sales will pitch in a week or two after that.

The Google Pixel 3 series was kind of disappointing in terms of performance, so the Pixel 4 phones will hopefully change that. The Pixel 3 devices were full of odd bugs and performance issues, which is not common for Google's phones. The Pixel 3a series did improve things, but those two devices are only mid-rangers.

We do not know how much will the Pixel 4 series phones cost, but they won't be cheap. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL retailed for $799 and $899, respectively. You can expect similar price tags for the Pixel 4 devices, if not a bit higher, we'll see.
