Google itself solved the mystery of how it’s new photo and AI powerhouse “Google Pixel 4” is going to look. Google responded to leaks by posting an official image on it’s twitter handle. But the company isn’t expected to ship the much awaited smartphone, Pixel 4 until October a month after the launch of iPhone 11.

“Wait ‘til you see what it can do,” the Pixel team tweeted.
It can be seen that there is no rear fingerprint scanner present on this device which has happened for the first time ever on a pixel. Every Pixel handset to date has had a rear fingerprint scanner, which points towards the Google Pixel 4 coming with an in-display scanner instead.
The pic also confirms that we are going to witness a large, square camera bump on the rear in the design department of Google Pixel 4 – which we’d seen in multiple rumors before Google posted its tweet.
On a closer inspection, it appears the bump houses two rear cameras- which would be a first for the Pixel line of phones, which have stuck to just a single rear snapper to date, and it also appears to feature a third sensor of some kind. Apart from that, we see what looks to be a white or gray power button and the company’s G logo.

It’s expected that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will come in sizes largely similar to their predecessors. According to Unbox Therapy’s Lewis Hilsenteger, the larger-sized Pixel 4 XL will not feature a notch and the company will instead move back to a more traditional top bezel.
There are also some rumours suggesting that Google will build its Project Soli technology into 2019’s Pixel phones. Soli is a small radar that can detect slight movements of a person’s fingers in space above the device, therefore this technology will provide its users with a new way to interact with the device if it’s resting on a table or wireless charging stand.
Google has already made it official that the next-generation Google Assistant will launch on the Pixel 4 this fall.
