Renders show Pixel 4 XL phone without notch and with three cameras on the back

Renders have appeared of what may be the design of the upcoming Google Pixel 4 phone. This successor to the Pixel 3, which is expected to be unveiled in three months, lacks a notch at the top of the screen and has three cameras on the back.

Unlike the Pixel 3, the Pixel 4 doesn’t have a notch at the top of the screen. Instead, the device will have a relatively thick screen border across the entire width at the top, OnLeaks reports based on the renders that it published in collaboration with the website Pricebaba. The renders and the accompanying published video are based on CAD drawings of Google’s new smartphone.

Based on the renders, OnLeaks, aka the generally reliable Steve Hemmerstoffer, states that the screen has a 6.25″ diagonal and that the screen bezel at the top contains a dual front camera and “two unknown sensors”; these are presumably the light and proximity sensor. The back is said to be made of glass and features a square camera island that houses three cameras, in addition to a microphone and an LED flash.

A fingerprint scanner seems to be missing, so that the smartphone may have a scanner integrated behind the screen. The bezel at the bottom of the screen is relatively thin, so the Pixel 3’s front-facing speakers have moved to the bottom of the phone with the new phone, next to the USB-C port. A 3.5mm connection is missing and the dimensions would be 160.4×75.2×8.2mm.
