Pixel 4 with square camera bump & triple lens teased by Google

Besides that, that's all we know about the mysterious Pixel 4 and don't bet your heart on having it in Malaysia officially, as Google has never bothered to export this bad boy into the Malaysia market.

Google's Pixel 4 continues to leak. Dating back to the original Pixel, Google has only relied on a single rear camera to produce unmatched photos in the smartphone segment, helped in part by its advances in computational photography. The move might raise a few eyebrows as Google had launched its budget Pixel devices only recently in May, but since Google is serious about taking on the iPhones, the decision won't be surprising. This is not surprising as the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and newly launched Pixel 3a have an official fabric phone case. "Wait 'til you see what it can do #Pixel4".

The majority of rumors we've seen so far have offered renders and supposed leaks about the design, which are almost identical to the Pixel 4 in Google's tweet.

The black coloured smartphone has a square-shaped camera bump on the top left side of the back.


Previously, the leaks showed off large camera sensors but the ones here are pretty tiny and below them, we find an LED flash and a cut-out for the laser-autofocus. Also, Google seems to have finally gotten over the glass and metal back panel and there is a visible power/wake button. Today's Pixel 4 leak shows that the speculation may well be wrong. Another point to note is that there is no rear fingerprint sensor which indicated that Google will be using an in-display variety for the handset. The Pixel 4 series is expected to feature an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor.

The newest image leaks provide little evidence of a rumor that circulated earlier this week about Google's inclusion of a new "Project Soli" chip. In fact, prominent leaker Evan Blass posted a screenshot of Verizon's marketing schedule that indicates the Pixel 4 will launch in October of this year.

"Buy the Google Pixel 3 now from (), (), (), ()". But Google is withholding the mystery of the front design, which is where we (really) hope to see a makeover.
