Forget renders – real Google Pixel 4 spotted in the wild

Forget renders – real Google Pixel 4 spotted in the wild
It has been a wild week for Google Pixel leaks. First, we got to see some leak-based renders that claimed to depict the real thing. Then, Google itself went "to Hell with it" and posted the design of the upcoming Pixel 4 phone. Granted, it was a darkened silhouette, but it pretty much showed that the latest leaks are correct.

Now, it seems we have another reaffirmation of the design language of the new Pixels — the phone was caught in the wild!

A reader sent 9to5Google a photo of the device in question. There's some potato quality issues going on, we assume because the person was keeping their distance and using the zoom on their phone to take the snap (Nice zoom, by the way!). What we can see is a phone with a square-shaped camera module on the back, a lot like the one that was leaked. The placement of the flash and two lenses also match previous reports.



Of course, the device is kept in a case and the user has their hands wrapped around it pretty tight, so we can't see much else. But the tipster who sent this picture says they did see the phone's front and yes, it does have a thick-ish forehead, just like we are assuming it will.



It seems Google just can't keep the Pixel's design a secret — last year's Pixel 3 was also popping up left and right months before release. Or could Google just be trolling us in some manner? We can't know for sure, not just yet... The Pixel 4 is expected to arrive this October, so we'll see what pops out between now and then.
