Google Pixel 4 XL Renders Reveal A Smartphone With Punch Hole Selfie Camera
In order to accommodate a large size screen on a mobile device, OEMs have begun to minimise the bezels surrounding the display. Although static bezels that don’t serve a purpose can be shrunken, the need to house the front-facing facing selfie camera persists. Consequently, companies including Samsung and Huawei have launched smartphones (1,2)with a punch hole in the display. This feature has allowed manufacturers to significantly boost the screen to body ratio of these smartphones. Google, the developer of Android who also markets a lineup of smartphones under the Pixel brand is reportedly working on a smartphone with dual punch hole selfie cameras. According to the source, the aforementioned smartphone is the Pixel 4 XL which will succeed the Pixel 3 XL from the last year.
The Google Pixel 3 XL was launched along with the Pixel 3 in the month of November last year. Even though both devices are from the same generation, they have significantly disparate front fascia. The Pixel 3 XL has a symmetrical design with prominent bezels on top and bottom of the display while the elder Pixel 3 XL has a wide notch above the display. The wide notch on the top of the Pixel 3 XL was not well received due to its asymmetrical design and highly obstructive nature. Therefore, Google might rethink the design language of its future flagship smartphone and the leaked image of the Pixel 4 XL has a high probability of turning into a reality.
Features Of The Leaked Pixel 4 XL
If the alleged images of the Pixel 4 XL are to be considered accurate, it will be a significantly upgraded device in comparison to its predecessor. As mentioned before, the alleged Pixel 4 XL has dual punch hole selfie cameras which are reminiscent of the newly launched Galaxy S10+. Also, the render does not exhibit a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, therefore, the upcoming device might have an on display fingerprint sensor.
Surprisingly, the renders reveal that the Pixel 4 XL also has dual rear cameras. As of now, Google has only marketed Pixel smartphones with a single rear camera which are highly appreciated for their camera prowess. Consequently, the camera capabilities of a Pixel smartphone with dual rear sensors is expected to be groundbreaking.
Google has not made any comments about the accuracy of the leak. Hence, we will have to wait patiently till the company spreads some light on the existence and launch date of the Pixel 4 XL.
