Google Pixel 4 confirmed with official image

Looks like we don’t have to wait until October to get an official look at the Google Pixel 4.

Google today shared an official image of the Pixel. The official Made by Google account posted the image along with the caption “Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go! Wait ’til you see what it can do. #Pixel4”, the tweet reads.

In the image, we can see a square camera housing with multiple rear cameras. That’s notable because Google’s previous three Pixel phones have only had a single rear camera.

Google didn’t share any other details about the Pixel 4, so we’ll have to speculate about what its features might be, at least until the company surprises us with another tweet like this one. The back of this Pixel 4 has at least two cameras and a flash, and there appears to be a third sensor at the top of the square camera housing. It’s unclear what that sensor might do, but we’ve seen a lot of flagship phones launch with Time of Flight (ToF) sensors to help gather depth info for photos, so that is one possibility.

It’s a huge surprise to see Google confirm the Pixel 4 in a tweet, especially since we’re still months away from when the device is expected to launch. We’ve seen the Pixel 4 leaks start to ramp up lately, so perhaps Google wanted to beat some of the speculation and uncertainty by straight up confirming the Pixel 4 and it’s multi-camera setup. Whatever the reason, I’m not complaining about getting an official look at the Pixel 4 this early.

    Hope it has a Qualcomm X55 5G modem in it.

    Unfortunate they chose to use THAT camera setup

    Well that’s rare, both the reveal and the camera setup. I left the Pixel 3a XL for the OnePlus 7 Pro due to the lack of a wide angle camera. I missed it from my V20.

    I know this is HIGHLY unlikely, but do you think this’ll push the Big Apple to rethink somethings for the iPhone 11? I’m just not crazy about that block camera thing…not for nothing, the back of the Pixel looks a skosh better. Thoughts?

      The back of the pixel looks exactly the same as the leaks of the iPhone 11. Hilariously so. And no, Apple won’t change the iPhone 11 at this stage because unlike the Pixel it sells in extremely high quantities and it’s too late in the process (3 months before first shipments) to adjust the supply chain.

        If the leaks for the new iPhone are accurate, the iPhone won’t be selling in high quantities. That is the worst design I’ve ever seen. I thought Apple spent so much time on design, lately that is total bull.

      iPhone 11 design looks ugly as far as camera design compare to Pixel 4

    Is it going to have a ultra wide angle lens?
