Google Confirms Huawei Mate 20-like Cameras on the Pixel 4


If you can’t beat them, join them — It seems like Google can’t catch a break when it comes to leaks. Last year, the Pixel 3 leaked so heavily that there’s nothing left to unveil but the price. Now, after an exclusive high-quality render of the Pixel 4 was revealed by Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka @OnLeaks, Google answered with a confirmation.

Google Pixel 4 Confirmed to Sport Square Camera Module

After the leak generated interested online, Google simply confirmed with an official tweet and render of its own. Similar to the upcoming iPhone, it will come with a square camera module. We really can’t say Google copied Apple, as this style of camera was first seen on the Huawei Mate 20 series.

While Google confirms the main camera of the Pixel 4, OnLeaks revealed a whole lot more. According to the renders, there’s no rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, leaving us with the impression that we could see an under-screen or high-level of face unlock security.

Another huge change is the removal of stereo speakers. Apparently, it’s going to be replaced by two down-firing speakers. Also, don’t expect the audio jack to stage a comeback.

So far, these are the things that we can depict from the renders. Are you excited about the changes? Or is the design yet another disappointment?
