New leaks give us a good look at the Google Pixel 4 and a ‘mystery’ sensor

By Jimmy Westenberg


The Google Pixel 4 has leaked yet again, this time courtesy of iGeeksBlog.

The larger Pixel 4 XL has been the star of most Pixel 4 leaks lately, but this time we’re getting a detailed look at the smaller Pixel 4 in a set of CAD renders. The renders unsurprisingly show off a device that looks just like the Pixel 4 XL, only smaller.

iGeeksBlog claims the Pixel 4 will have a 5.6-inch display and measure 147 x 68.9 x 8.2mm (9.3mm with the camera bump). A larger “forehead” bezel sits above the display, housing two front-facing cameras, an earpiece, and some type of mystery sensor (more on this later).

Both the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are reported to have bottom-firing speakers, dual rear cameras and a spectral sensor, a minimal “chin” bezel below the display, and no headphone jack. You’ll also notice the lack of a fingerprint …read more
