The leaks keep rolling in for the Pixel 4, which is still months from its official announcement. The device does not appear to be the innovator that previous leaks implied it would be though.

Skinomi, the well-known US skin manufacturer, has jumped the gun early. The company has released a skin for the Pixel 4 months ahead of its official unveiling. The listing only shows the front of Google's upcoming flagship, but it confirms several features that the device will have.

Firstly, there will be no capacitive power or volume buttons as previous leaks have claimed. The Pixel 4 will still rock the accented power button as previous Pixel smartphones have. The screen-to-body ratio is much higher than the Pixel 3 too, with Google incorporating a punch-hole style front-facing camera system to achieve this.

The device will have dual front-facing cameras, which also goes against previous leaks that claimed Google would instead use a single front-facing sensor, reserving dual front-facing sensors for the Pixel 4 XL. Additionally, the Pixel 4 will have stereo front-facing speakers despite its slim display bezels.

As expected, the Pixel 4 will ship with Android 10.0 Q. The model in the Skinomi listing appears to be the white version too. Let us know in the comments what you think of the Pixel 4, or do you believe Skinomi is relying on false information?
