You can see how close the leaked images were if you visit OnLeaks, for example, again on Twitter. Along with the image was the tweet "Well, there seems to be some interest, here you go!" It will be interesting to see if Google's decision to get out in front of the leaks (as best it could) will pay off when it comes to the narratives that will inevitably arise as the year goes on. The official photo from Google only shows the Pixel 4 from the back, but it confirms the square camera pod along with the fact that the fingerprint reader is now likely incorporated within the actual display.

Back to back Pixel 4 stories as the rumor mill just graduated to the next level by Google officially chiming in with a leak itself.

Google's Pixel 4 continues to leak. The first-generation Pixel mercilessly mocked rivals for ditching the 3.5mm headphone port - before the Google Pixel 2 did exactly that. The Pixel phones meanwhile have always been lauded for its exceptional cameras and that is expected to continue with the new Pixel 4 range as well. Hence, there is a highly likely chance that Snapdragon 855 SoC will power Google Pixel 4. It's a feat others have tried but failed at, except for Google and some gaming companies like Sony (SNE), Microsoft (MSFT) and Nintendo when they unveil highly awaited games or gaming consoles. Provided Google sticks with its usual schedule, we won't see the Pixel 4 unveiled until early October 2019, so there's still time for a few changes to the design.

Pixel phones have been renowned for photography, even as the competition added more lenses. Another online report also suggested that Google Pixel 4 will come with hardware support for multi-SIM functionality. Could this mean that Google is switching things up and abandoning the regular dual-tone design synonymous to its Pixel flagships?

It seems like Google is trying to adopt the now-common features (multiple camera sensors, similar design, in-display fingerprinting, and more) to keep up with the competition in the mobile world, given the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL weren't that impressive.

The absence of bezels is another factor that marks the new Pixel 4 range, as has been evident in the leaks from other unofficial sources. Drop a comment and let us know!
