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.
