Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL Screen Protectors Leaked; Renders Also Surface Based on Initial Leaks

Highlights
  • Google announced Project Soli for wearables and IoT devices back in 2015
  • Pixel 4-series phones could use Project Soli for gesture recognition
  • Renders show a traditional curved-edge display on Pixel phones

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL screen protectors have been leaked online. The latest leak corroborates previous reports and suggests thick bezels on the top and bottom of both Pixel 4-series phones. The alleged screen protectors also hint at the presence of new sensors that could be used for gesture recognition. Google notably has its Project Soli in the pipeline for quite some time that could debut on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Separately, some CAD-based renders of the Pixel 4-series phones have emerged on the Web to indicate Project Soli-based technology.

A tipster who leaks unannounced developments on social media using pseudonym Ice Universe has posted the image showing two screen protectors on Twitter. The screen protectors are claimed to be of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Both screen protectors suggest that the forehead and chin of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL would be thicker than what we saw on flagships such as the OnePlus 7 Pro ₹ 48,999 and Samsung Galaxy S10. This infers that both new Pixel phones would lack a pop-up selfie camera module or a hole-punch design.
