Tech leaker Ice Universe published images of phone screen protectors allegedly designed for Google’s upcoming flagship devices Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
From the pictures, it appears that neither model will have a notch. However, both will have thick bezels on the upper and lower edges. Cut outs inside the top bezel show where the central ear speaker, dual front cameras, and a third sensor that could be a depth sensor or facial recognition sensor will be.
A fifth opening, a wide oval space, can be found in the top bezel on the right-hand side. According to Ice Universe, “The oval opening of the Pixel 4 Series front panel means that the Google Pixel 4 Series will be ground-breaking and new and worth looking forward to.”
Though Google has not commented on what this space could be used for, sources expect it to house the by-product of the company’s Project Soli, a project focused on the development of sensing technology that detects gesture interactions.
The Pixel 4 line-up will not go bezel-less like other flagships in the industry are attempting to but it could feature gesture controls.
It is likely that the Pixel 4 Series will be unveiled this October.
