Forget the Pixel 3 - Google just officially revealed its next flagship smartphone

Google Pixel 4 confirmed with official image

Google Pixel 4 confirmed with official image

Google knows we are excited and even teases us by saying "Wait 'til you see what it can do".

Google's first teaser also confirms that there would be no rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on Pixel 4. Earlier this week, we came across a leaked render of this smartphone showing what we can expect from it in terms of design.

Going around the front of the Pixel 4 we don't have any official render but some leaks suggest there is a top bezel for a speaker.

The camera bump appears to be a monstrous square-like design which looks easily big enough to squeeze four separate camera lens, provided they're arranged like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Such an early release could mean that the phone will be launched earlier than October.

From that single photo, we can gather that the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone isn't present.

In response to the first accurate leaks about the next Pixel handsets, Google provided a clearer view of the future. Will it have a giant notch like the Pixel 3? I've seen previous rumours of a hole cutout selfie camera (like Samsung Galaxy S10) but there are no signs of this.

Although Leicester's Harry Maguire and Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly are targets, Old Trafford chiefs are now testing different waters.

What will it be called?

The issue isn't only that Apple and Google have concluded that it is, actually, hip to be square: it's the domino impact that their designs have on the rest of the industry.

Ever since the Google Pixel 3 series is unveiled, there are quite a lot of rumors around Google Pixel 4 series. This is not surprising as the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and newly launched Pixel 3a have an official fabric phone case.

A leak of Verizon's marketing roadmap indicates an October release will once again happen. This is now the honour of the Huawei P30 Pro, but Google could be coming for that crown with the latest Pixel smartphone.

Soli uses radar to detect hand movements that can control a phone or watch, for example. It's, uh, a picture of the Pixel 4.

Another big change we've seen in Pixel 4 is the missing dual-tone finish on the back, which has been a signature look for Pixel phones all these years. It is not often that the leak comes from the manufacturer of the phone but Google has released an image of the Pixel 4.
