What you need to know

  • Someone reportedly spotted the Pixel 4 in London.
  • The spy shot shows off the device's square camera.
  • The tipster also claims the device has a large forehead.

It was bound to happen, and we now have our first look at what appears to be a Pixel 4 being tested in the wild. The photo, which comes just a few days after Google shared a render of the device, shows off the new square camera.

The photo of the Pixel 4 isn't of the highest quality, but it does match up with what Google shared this week. We can clearly see a dual-camera setup, an LED flash, and an additional sensor, the function of which remains a mystery.

9to5Google's tipster shared more information about what the Pixel 4 looks like:

Out tipster further shared that the device was spotted in London, but no other images were taken of the device. They were able to get a quick peek at the front of the device and confirmed that the rumored "forehead" did indeed seem large and still had the two front facing cameras from last year's model.

The inclusion of a forehead is interesting because it means Google is doing away with the notch, which many people found to be obnoxiously large on the Pixel 3 XL.

Based on the render shared by Google earlier this week, the Pixel 4 will feature a dual-camera setup and no rear-facing fingerprint sensor. Instead, we could see Google employ an in-display sensor like the Galaxy S10.

Although Google has already confirmed the Pixel 4 exists, we're not expecting the device to be available until October, so there's plenty more time for additional leaks.
