I would prefer 3 cameras, but if just 2 lets hope one is zoom. As long as the Pixel 4 also has the same camera number & setup as the XL I will be happy.

Judging by the camera bump I'd say 3 cameras If it's only then they'll probably go with wide + ultra wide and continue using Super Res Zoom

Well, you can't say Google copied Apple since both designs are rumors at this stage. But yeah, from all the Chinese copycats, it's an irony that Google is the biggest copycat. Well, it did happened before with Android being a copy of iOS...

You can't say it period because the square camera module has been done before by a Chinese OEM long before the rumors of the iPhone 11 even started and Apple is one of the biggest copycats in the tech industry.

Android was in development long before the first iPhone was announced.

I find this whole 'X copied Y' thing a bit silly. But, while it's true that Android was in development before the iPhone's announcement, it's also true that the first device was originally going to resemble a BlackBerry. They scrapped that idea and went back to the drawing board when Apple announced the iPhone.

"I find this whole 'X copied Y' thing a bit silly." It's in your title though.

That's called a comparison. At no point in the title or article do I say that Google is copying Apple, it's just a similar design.

Yeah and you compared it to the iPhone when the iPhone itself should have been compared to the Mate 20. But that wouldn't have garnered the required clicks and comments. IPhone references are becoming all too common in your articles Joshua.

"iPhone references are becoming all too common in your articles Joshua." If you click on my author profile and check out my articles, you'll find that that's far from the truth.

Ok maybe it's an exaggeration. But you still haven't answered the iPhone comparison when the Mate 20 is already on the market and, as Dr. Phil pointed out previously, Samsung and HTC have used the same design before.

Bulls**t, you heavily implied that Google is copying Apple, DESPITE the fact that neither phone is even released and this has been done by a different manufacturer on a RELEASED device.

No, I'm not implying anything. The rear of the Pixel 4 looks like the upcoming iPhone 11. It's not my problem If you can't see that because you hate Apple so much.

What? Your article title is this: "Google Pixel 4 renders leak showing iPhone 11-like design" Now go look up the definition of implied. This has nothing to do with Apple hate. Its hate for authors who want to write articles starting flame wars in the comments. If you wanted journalistic integrity on a site called **phonearena** maybe you should have mentioned that the iPhone 11 is aping a different device? But that wouldn't generate clicks or reinforce your precious narrative would it?

I don't want to start 'wars.' That's a ridiculous thing to say. The rear design of the Pixel 4 pictured today looks like that of Apple's upcoming iPhone 11. It's really that simple. I haven't implied they're copying.

You absolutely are and that is why you made your "comparison". Why would you even mention they where similar if you weren't trying to imply something? Its your (or your bosses) hatred of anything non-iPhone that is the issue.

Because it's the quickest and most interesting way to describe the design quickly in the title. You're just trying to find an issue where there isn't one. If you don't want to believe me, then don't. Quite frankly, I don't care

No one is hating on Apple. However you used the title as clickbait and succeeded. Where's the article comparing the iPhone 11 to previously released products with the same design? I guess we'll just have to accept that when the iPhone 11 is finally released Apple and the sheeple claims of original artistic design magnificence are true and will be reinforced with an 12/10 score from Phonearena.

dude you need to stop. You just digging deeper and you look crazy trying to change and argue when your title clearly states what you full intent was. To even try to act like you are some innocent victim is stupid.

Citation? Or are you just regurgitating someone else's narrative?

52. ssallen

So, again, you are just pushing a narrative? No where does it say they scrapped everything and started over. They merely changed direction on the touchscreen design. Just like Apple changed direction on copy and paste in the iPhone. Would you say Apple scrapped everything and started over to implement that 2 years later? This narrative is just flat out ridiculous.

Samsung is for people who likes alot of features so if mainly care about the camera then yeah Google is your best choice. Sam camera is not even bad though but if your a camera fanatic i can't complain

I'm just waiting for official pics and then I can say bye bye to Google. I have no faith in their hardware team anymore. Smh
