Pixel 4 XL Could Kill the Notch, But There's a Catch

Pixel 4 XL Could Kill the Notch, But There's a Catch

XDA Developers' Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman first found out about Google's plans to work on a Face ID-like feature on Android Q back in January, which was further proofed by his discovery of the mysterious "IR" camera in the leaked Google Camera 6.3 app last week. We expect the Pixel 4 to be available in a range of colours, so you'll probably get a number of different button colours. That is a bit of a surprise, given that smartphone makers have largely favored moving on from the bezel, whether utilizing a notch, a punch-hole cutout, or even an under-display camera. The rear camera module, which carries the legacy for emoji resemblance in their design from a year ago with an amazed emoji face, took us by a pleasant surprise. There's no rear fingerprint reader here, suggesting that the Pixel 4 XL could have an in-display fingerprint sensor or perhaps rely on face unlock. Now, it looks like the Pixel 4 XL has surfaced online, with renders showing dual selfie cameras and what appears to be a triple rear camera setup.

Last month, Google surprisingly gave us the first sneak peek of its upcoming Google Pixel 4, confirming the previous leaks. It's believed that the cameras will consist of a main lens, a telephoto lens, and possibly a 3D sensor. The back seems to be entirely reflective this time instead of the dual pattern we've seen on the Pixel 3 devices with no line to divide the back into two portions. There's no headphone jack either, which is par for the course given the Pixel 4 XL's predecessors. On the front, there are dual cameras hidden by a thick notch. While the Pixel 3 XL offered front-firing speakers, it's expected that the Pixel 4 XL will have downward-firing speakers. It should arrive in October which is still three months away. Rather, we noticed additional speakers on the bottom on the phone next to the USB Type-C port.
