Google just revealed the Pixel 4 months earlier than expected

Google just revealed the Pixel 4 months earlier than expected

Outside of the black housing and the square camera bump, there's not much else we can gather from the picture.

In a surprising move, Google just confirmed the Google Pixel 4 design months ahead of its expected launch. It looks like the company is finally ditching the two-tone style on the back and instead favoring a more traditional aesthetic.

Google's upcoming Pixel 4 smartphone is also rumored to have a notch, two speaker grills on the edge at either side of the USB-C port and volume and power on the right-hand side of the phone.

Google today shared an official image of the Pixel. After rumors started flying that the Pixel 4 would support Project Soli, Google's radar-based gesture chip, Google has offered an official response. There are also rumblings that the Pixel 4 will boast 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, at a minimum. "Wait 'til you see what it can do #Pixel4".

Google finally revealed Stadia pricing, games, and release date
At launch, it appears there will be tons of games to play , but Google made a decision to highlight a certain few for this event. Technically, Stadia is a free service where you'll be buying Stadia games just like you would normally on a store like Steam .

We don't think the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL designs are final yet.

The Pixel 4 device here appears bulky but the source said it is placed inside a phone case and a bulky one at that. Now, there is a possibility that Google could be trolling everyone but for the sake of this article and until proven otherwise, we will assume this is the actual design. If this really happens, it would be the first time Google will use multiple cameras at the back of its smartphones.

Finally, it's worth noting there's no fingerprint sensor on the back of the Pixel 4 in these renders, which suggests earlier rumours of a scanner embedded underneath the glass display were accurate. The Pixel line has always had a rear fingerprint sensor, but lately we've been seeing more and more devices switch to in-screen fingerprint readers. We don't see a front-facing speaker.
