When the Pixel 3 launched last fall, we witnessed the ugliest notch design so far. Not only did Google joined a growing list of Android vendors that cloned the iPhone X’s design, but it did a horrible job at it. The Pixel 3 XL featured a colossal notch, in comparison with everything else on the market, in addition to significant chin — the Pixel 3, meanwhile, featured symmetrical top and bottom bezels. Google won’t repeat the identical design mistake with the Pixel 4, although the phone isn’t what you’d call pretty, not by 2019 requirements in any case. The Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4 will not have notches in any way, a series of leaks have advised us. However, a brand new one signifies that the real reason why Google will make use of a regular bezel on the top of the phone is much more vital than visual considerations.
If these designs are based on Google’s actual Pixel 4 design, we’re a top bezel that’s quite busy.
From left to right, we’ve openings for the phone’s dual cameras and sensors that can enable 3D face recognition on the Pixel 4; the top speaker; and a mysterious pill-shaped opening. That opening will feature probability house the Project Soli radar sensors that Google plans to introduce with the Pixel 4 that can permit new gesture-based controls on the phone.
Even when Google wanted a notch design for the Pixel 4, there’s simply no room in that bezel for more screen real estate.
A different leaker, in the meantime, posted more Pixel 4 renders in partnership with iGeeksBlog that show the Pixel 4’s front and rear design.
