Google Pixel 4 XL in black and white get compared in latest leak
The white Pixel 4's a modern take on the 'Panda' Pixel 2 XL
As spotted by 9To5Google, one Reddit user with access to Google’s next-gen flagships has posted a small gallery comparing the black Pixel 4 XL model to the white one. The former, as today’s images show, will be completely black except for the accented white power key. The latter, on the other hand, appears to represent a modern take on the Pixel 2 XL’s Panda finish. It features a white rear panel, a black frame, a black front panel, and an orange power button.
Google is known for its two-tone rear finish but the internet giant’s ditching the look this year in favor of a single slab of glossy that houses the ‘G’ logo and a new square camera module. Past phones have also featured rear-mounted fingerprint scanners but Google is replacing them with a Face ID-like rival this year, which brings us on to the next set of features.
Android 10 will be at the heart of Google's Pixel 4
As mentioned previously, Google’s next smartphone will rather unsurprisingly ship with Android 10 straight out of the box. This update introduces a new gesture-based navigation interface, contextually aware Smart Reply and Suggested Actions for notifications, enhanced location sharing privacy controls, seamless background updates, and a variety of improvements to Digital Wellbeing.
Another feature arriving with Android 10 is native Dark Mode and Google will presumably focus on this with the Pixel 4. The company seems to have prepared at least one wallpaper that adapts to Dark Mode. Moreover, today’s photos seem to suggest the black Pixel 4 XL ships with Dark Mode activated as standard whereas the white model doesn’t.
