This isn't the first time Google's upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have been leaked, and going by the the pattern so far, it doesn't look like it's going to be the last one either. Over the past few months, there have not only been a number of leaked renders for the device, but information regarding its rumored specifications, the kind of sensors it will sport, and so on, has also been uncovered. Most recently, Best Buy's landing page for the flagship handset revealed that the Soli radar won't be supported in all countries the Pixel 4 is launched in.
Either way, it looks like it's back to leaked images for now, as a Weibo user has uploaded some pictures of the smartphone, which have now been deleted. However, the folks over at XDA-Developers luckily got their hands on some of these (most of which were obtained by CNMO) before they were removed.
The first two of these images (posted above) do not showcase much that was not previously known about the upcoming smartphones. In the left one, the notchless part at the top can be observed, featuring a rather large bezel with the front-facing camera, and sensors for Face Unlock and Motion Sense. It also seems to be running on beta software for some apps, as indicated by the dogfood logo in the Google Camera icon. On the other hand, the image on the right showcases the backside of what looks to be the larger XL variant, featuring dual rear cameras for the white-colored model.
The next two pictures above are where things start to get a bit more interesting. Although details regarding the camera have been rumored before, there had been no hint as to how far the supposedly 16MP telephoto camera can zoom. Now, as can be seen in the image on the left, the Google Camera app looks to be zooming in to 8x magnification. However, it's unclear whether that will be fully lossless zoom or not.
And finally, the last image on the right shows a device information app, clearly displaying information regarding the phone's RAM usage. As has been speculated before, it's quite likely the Pixel 4 will be powered by 6GB of RAM, with the picture showcasing 5.28GB of usable RAM for the model.
Although we won't know for sure how much of this is true until Google officially unveils its flagship handsets - presumably next month -, if we go by last year's example, the tech giant may end up not having any surprises rolled up its sleeve this time around either.
