Photos of what could be Google's upcoming Pixel 4 have leaked through Telegram, XDA-Developers reports. The images show a device that complies with the official photos and information released for the phone by Google. They also suggest that the company is moving away from the two-tone color schemes found on previous Pixels.
It is not clear what the source of the photos may be. XDA's Missal Rahman said on Twitter that the images were shared on a "(very) small channel" by Telegram and that they were also posted to a "private group" by someone who denied knows the source of the images. XDA suggests that we are looking at a prototype of a handset that is being tested by Sprint on its network because of the prominent operator logo on the top left of the screen. If we were an employee of Sprint who wanted to share a photo on an unannounced phone, then we would probably make at least an effort to obscure our company name and test bench. It is assumed that these photos were intended for internal use only and expired only later.
It is not clear if the picture on the phone is Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL. It was very easy for this generation to hand out both Pixel 3 phones due to the huge cut of the larger model, but early rumors from Unbox Therapy suggest that both Pixel 4 models will have a traditional upper panel .
Otherwise, the photos confirm the official data shared by Google about the phone, namely the square camera on the back (although we haven't seen exactly how much it protrudes), the lack of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and the positioning of the cameras in the top frame. However, there is no further information on the most sophisticated rumor about the Pixel 4, which says it will include a 90Hz display similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro. To do this, we will have to wait for the phone's settings menus to expire. Considering Pixel's historically skipping record, this has to happen every day.
