Although the phone isn’t expected to launch until this October, Google has released an official image of the Google Pixel 4.
Typically, on the few months running up to the release of a new flagship, there are numerous images online speculating what the devices may look like. Well, just last week, Google itself decided to release an official image of the Pixel 4 on their Twitter. Introducing the Google Pixel 4.

The release of an official image comes after numerous leaks have circulated online displaying renders of what changes in its design have been made. Instead of letting any other leaks surface, the tech giant has decided to bite the bullet and shut down any further speculation of what the phone might look like.
From Google’s image, it’s clear to see that the Pixel 4 features a large square camera formation on the rear of the device. The bump appears to be the home of two cameras, alongside a camera flash and some sort of sensor. As well as a square camera bump, the image clearly shows the lack of a rear fingerprint scanner – a functionality that has featured on every Pixel model to date. Perhaps this means that the Pixel 4 will come with an in-display scanner instead. We can also see Google’s G logo and what appears to be a power button on the side of the phone.
It has also been rumoured that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL screen sizes will be very similar to their predecessors. The main difference between the two current handsets is their screen sizes; the Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch display, whilst the Pixel 3XL has a larger 6.3-inch display. It’s also been circulating that the phones will sport the more traditional top bezel and get rid of the notch completely on the larger handset.
According to The Verge, it has already been established that the Pixel 4 will house the next generation Google Assistant.
Although, it is just one photo that has been released and we’re all going to have to wait until Google’s official release to see “what it can do”.
Release date and price:
If past years are anything to go by, we are expecting the Google Pixel 4 to be launched sometime in October during the Made By Google event and shipped shortly after.
In regards to price, we are anticipating the Pixel 4 to cost a little higher than the current Pixel devices at £739, as the cost of the Pixel handsets has been rising each year.
As usual, Google will probably release the devices in various different storage capacities at different prices.
