Google publishes images of Pixel 4 far before fall launch

In response to the flood of rumours spreading about Google's upcoming flagship, the company published its own official images of the device on Twitter revealing the Pixel 4's square-shaped rear camera apparatus. 

Despite the launch of the next Pixel most likely not taking place until October, rumours about the Google handset have been spreading like wildfire among tech enthusiasts. 

To curb the public's obvious interest – or perhaps to ignite it more – Google responded to the onslaught of rumours on June 12 by publishing an official image of the backside of the Pixel 4. 

Though the company did not reveal any specs about the device, the image does show the square-shaped rear camera module similar to the expected design of the anticipated iPhone 11. 

Within the square, there looks to be at least two lenses – which is double that which is found on the Pixel 3 – and some sort of sensor. For the first time, there's no fingerprint reader on the backside, suggesting that it's moved beneath the display on the front. 

A rumour that Google had not commented on is the possibility of a second, larger edition of the model: a Pixel 4 XL. 

Such an early release could mean that the phone will be launched earlier than October. In any case, it will likely be months before the full specs will be revealed unless Google makes another unusual move. – AFP Relaxnews
