The first set of Google Pixel 4 renders have hit the internet and they reveal some massive design changes. The renders show off a massive camera bump at the rear which confirms that the Pixel 4 series will come with dual cameras — if not three — at the rear.
The rear panel also lacks any physical fingerprint scanner thereby confirming that Google is going to make the switch to in-display fingerprint scanner with its Pixel 4 lineup this year. Google is also ditching the front-firing stereo speaker setup on the Pixel 4 lineup.The handset will likely continue to come with a stereo speaker setup in which the earpiece will act as the secondary speaker as seen on plenty of other flagship smartphones.
By ditching the front-firing stereo speaker setup, Google would be able to increase the screen-to-body ratio of its upcoming Pixels.
It will be interesting to how Google takes advantage of the massive camera bump on Pixel 4. The additional space could be used by the company to switch to a bigger camera sensor thereby improving the low-light performance and dynamic range dramatically.
There’s still no headphone jack, though other physical buttons and the USB-C port at the bottom are still present on the upcoming Pixel. The renders are of the smaller Pixel 4, though the Pixel 4 XL is also likely to have the same rear design including the massive camera bump.
It is unclear from the renders if the Pixel 4 will make the switch to a punch-hole selfie camera or not.
What are your thoughts on the design of the Pixel 4? Do you hate the massive rear camera bump?
