Google is expected to unveil two new Pixel devices at its October 4 event, and recent leaks have pretty much spoiled what to expect. Now, it sounds like a third device is in the works. That’s according to a new video by YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss, who received slides from an alleged Google presentation revealing a device known as the Ultra Pixel.
The device will allegedly feature a slim frame that houses an edge-to-edge display with what looks to leave enough room for front-facing stereo speakers, a dual-camera setup, and no software buttons to speak of.
Instead, evidence provided by Mrwhosetheboss suggests the device will rely on gestures to navigate Android, taking inspiration directly from Apple’s iPhone X. The argument is that as phones get larger, gestures to navigate the system are easier than onscreen buttons, which take up precious screen real estate.
The report goes on to speculate the Ultra Pixel will feature a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display—something neither Samsung or Apple has been able to achieve in its devices.
To recap: The Ultra Pixel won’t feature software buttons, will come with a dual-camera setup, and have a fingerprint sensor beneath the display. If it sounds too good to be true, it must be.
We’re expecting Google to unveil two Pixel devices next week, neither of which fit the description laid out by Mrwhosetheboss. Now, that’s not to say Google isn’t working toward a future in which one of its devices will feature everything laid out in the video above. But it’s highly unlikely the leaked pictures are legitimate, even if it does sound like our dream phone.
See for yourself in the video above.
