Google Pixel 4 XL leak reveals notchless design and triple rear cameras

It has been just over a month since Google posted a render of the upcoming Pixel 4, and now OnLeaks is back with a first look at the front of the device. The former will house an earpiece and dual front-facing cameras. The company has been working on integrating new gestures within Android Q that require an unknown "active" sensor too, pointing towards Google introducing some new input method with the Pixel 4 series. We suspect these might be for an infrared-based time of flight camera for facial identification, similar to Face ID on the iPhone.

This leak also goes a little further, saying that the display is expected to be 6.25-inches on the diagonal, with the phone measuring 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2mm, making it a little taller than the previous phone. This sensor could either be a proximity sensor or a new sensor for rumored face unlock functionality. Well, we apparently have a confirmation of glass back there, so there's that bit of disappointment.

As for the camera module on the back, there are two different cameras and as Mishaal revealed earlier, there is a good chance that one of these cameras is a telephoto lens. At the moment we don't know exactly what Google is going to do with the cameras. There's speculation that the top bar might contain some other sensors.
