Pixel 4 To Get Big Bezel, Motion Gestures
New images leaked online purport to show the Google Pixel 4 will have a large “forehead’ bezel, in contrast to recent trends toward full screen devices.
The images come from Twitter account Ice Universe, a prolific smartphone leaker.
Previous renders of the phone leaked online last month, prompting Google to release its own images showing the back, but not the front of the phone.
The newly leaked images show a strip along the top of the phone’s display panel that is expected to house front-facing cameras and sensors, eschewing the notch, holepunch or waterdrop style increasingly found on full-screen devices.
One of the sensors to be housed in the top bezel is believed to relate to Google’s Project Soli motion detection technology for touch-free gesture support.
The Pixel 4 is expected to launch around October this year.
