It’s a well known fact that Google has a really bad history of keeping their pixel phones under wraps. The Pixel 3 was leaked extensively in the build up to it’s release last year. Fast forward a year later and the internet has been rife with photos of what is supposedly the Pixel 4, to the point where Google even conceded and put out an official albeit vague picture of the back of the device.
Prior to these leaks, we knew that the back of the phone is going to sport a square camera setup, similar to the rumoured setup on the iphone 11, as well as details on some key features, such as the inclusion of facial recognition and Google’s Soli, a radio-based gesture sensing system. Now, thanks to not one but TWO leaks, one of which apparently came from right here in Malaysia, we have an 11-second video of the phone in its entirety… in TWO colourways as well. Gotta love the internet.
The video, which has since gone (somewhat) viral, shows the phone from every angle, perhaps revealing a bit too much than we’re ready for; the device looks really thick for a phone in 2019 and it’s screen to body ratio leaves much to be desired. In a way, I guess Google took a page out of Apple’s book by producing a smartphone that looks a tad bit outdated. Check out the white colourway below:
Personally, I like how it looks. But then again i’m also a fan of heavy phones and apparently that sacrilege so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Now, it’s worth noting that these leaks could be fake but given Google’s previous track record with leaks, odds are these ones are right on the money.
What do you guys think?
