In the video, he flashes the CPU-Z app, which we can see specs of the Pixel 4 XL.

The leak comes in the form of a render of the Pixel 4 which seems to come from a screen protector maker.

As Pro Android points out, Google isn't first to market with such an idea.

The Google Pixel 4 in the video is an early demo. Most notable is the reveal of a 90Hz display; we'd heard rumblings of it before, but this video seemingly confirms it.

Rounding out the next-gen Pixel flagships will be a Project Soli radar that enables a bunch of different gestures which also leaked recently and a wide-angle selfie camera that's capable of replacing the regular camera with cropping and Super Res Zoom software. A new leak - or rumor - about the Pixel 4 seems to rear its head every single day, and with three new hands-on videos appearing online today, just about everything there is to know about the next generation of Google phones now seems to have been revealed.

Most notably though, it appears the Pixel 4 will be capable of zooming in up to eight-times with its camera array. We saw more Pixel 4 units in the wild than ever before, complete with an additional, unexpected color for the series. In terms of specifications, Pixel 4 could feature a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display, while the Pixel 4 XL will house a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ display.

Considering these and the launch date leaks in recent times, we wouldn't be surprised if Google shows its hand soon and formally sends out invites to the announcement event soon.

Finally, the last thing to note is that facial recognition is the only security option available in the menu.

In addition to the refresh rate, the user shared an image of the Pixel 4's Face Unlock in action. As such, there are a few features that aren't working - like the confirmed gesture-controls and facial recognition, and front-facing cameras, which are rumoured to sport the same secondary ultra-wide angle lens to take group shots without the help of a Selfie Stick. The camera design looks similar to the iPhone 11 but less protruding.

It looks like Google will ditch its dual-tone back design as well. One disappointing factor could be the presence of bezels on the Pixel 4.
