Photos & # 39; s of what the upcoming Pixel 4 from Google could be have been leaked via Telegram, XDA Developers reports. The images appear to show a device that is consistent with the official photos and information released by Google over the phone. They also suggest that the company abandons the two-color color schemes found on earlier Pixels.
It is unclear what the source of the photos could be. XDA & # 39; s Mishaal Rahman said on Twitter that the images were shared in a "(very) small channel" on Telegram, and that they were also posted in a "private group" by someone who denied knowing the source of the images. XDA speculates that we are looking at a prototype handset that is being tested by Sprint on its network, because of the prominent operator logo in the top left of the screen. If we were a Sprint employee who wanted to share a photo of an unannounced handset, we would probably make at least a passing attempt to disguise the name of our company and our test bench. Presumably these photos were only intended for internal use and did not leak out until later.
It is unclear whether the telephone shown is the Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL. This generation, it was very easy to keep the two Pixel 3 handsets apart thanks to the huge notch of the larger model, but early rumors about Switch off therapy suggest that both Pixel 4 models have a traditional upper edge.
Otherwise, the photos confirm the official data that Google has already shared about the handset, namely the square camera bubble on the back (although we have not seen exactly how far it protrudes), the lack of a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back , and the positioning of the cameras in the top panel. However, there is no further information about the most provocative Pixel 4 rumor that it will contain a 90Hz screen similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro. For that we have to wait until the settings menu & # 39; s leak from the phone. Given the historically leaky track record of the Pixel, that should now be possible every day.
