The Pixel 4 has already been quite heavily leaked ahead of its launch, including by Google itself. However, the first official render that clearly shows the entirety of the front and rear of the device has now surfaced as well.

Although the Google Pixel range doesn’t sell in especially high volumes, it remains a leading flagship Android contender running Google’s purest iteration of its wildly popular Android operating system. Not only that, it is often the case that Google’s Pixel devices pick up a few custom features that you won’t see on other devices like a bespoke launcher or custom image processor. The Pixel 4 is set to repeat this trend with, among the usual software tweaks, picks up Google’s custom Soli radar chip for hand gesture control.

Google itself sensationally leaked the rear camera array of the device a few months ago, well ahead of its launch confirming speculation around its design. Since then it has revealed technical details about the hardware embedded beneath its relatively thick (by 2019 standard) top bezel and it has appeared in the wild in both photos and video. Now, however, it looks like the first official render of the device has surfaced in full thanks to the reliably connected Evan Blass.

The render confirms that there is no rear fingerprint sensor, which means that facial recognition tech will be the principle form of biometric authentication. However, it remains possible this is accompanied by an under-display fingerprint sensor. While it won’t win any awards in the aesthetic taste stakes for its design, it does avoid the pitfalls of smartphone displays with notches in them (like 2018’s heinous Pixel 3 XL) or display punch-holes. Given the rumored 90 Hz display and anticipated still camera prowess, we expect it will still do quite well.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
