Google just revealed the Pixel 4’s design, including two rear cameras

While competitors like Samsung pile more and more rear cameras onto their devices (the Galaxy S10 5G is up to four rear cameras) Google has stubbornly stuck to a single camera, choosing to focus on image quality over lens gimmicks. This Twitter post could be Google giving up on staying ahead of the leaks, or it could be angling toward a much quicker Pixel 4 announcement. We may be looking at different prototypes here so again, let's wait and see. It looks like the company is finally ditching the two-tone style on the back and instead favoring a more traditional aesthetic.

Furthermore, the next Pixel smartphone is expected to retain the notch display which was there on the Pixel 3 devices that were launched previous year.

After a deluge of leaks related to the design of the Pixel 4, it seems Google made a decision to get ahead of the game and just release a photo of the device. Our only comment is that Pixel phones are usually buggy at first release. With any luck it'll be a little smaller than the gigantic notch on the Pixel 3 XL, which was mocked by rival Samsung at launch.

As far as other Pixel 4 specs are concerned, Slashleaks notes that Google's next-gen smartphone will not include front-firing speakers or a physical fingerprint scanner.

The renders which were published by OnLeaks in partnership with PriceBaba, reveal that the square bump at the back of the phone will be having at least two cameras if not three. This makes the Pixel 4 the first in the series to have two rear-facing cameras along with a flash in the camera module.

Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go! The Pixel line has always had a rear fingerprint sensor, but lately we've been seeing more and more devices switch to in-screen fingerprint readers.
