The Pixel 4 XL has failed to stop leaking this week, and now we have another set of photos that show the unannounced and unpublished phone.
Several of the leaks we have seen this week have been derived from a Vietnam-based store that sells imported phones, called D Store Mobile. D Store declined to share how it acquired an unpublished Pixel 4 XL, but told The Verge that the phone was not an end unit and was more likely to be a "test model." However, it is not false. D Store said. Google has not responded to a request for comments.
D Store also sent more than 21 photos of the Pixel 4 XL that we have not seen published before. Given the depth with which this phone was leaked, there is not necessarily new information to show here, but it offers additional confirmation of the phone's specifications and how the white model will look. The phone is supposed to be announced in October.
If you know any details about the Pixel 4 that I don't know, send me an email: [email protected]
A detail I noticed in these photos is been there, but I have not seen it yet: if these details are correct, the main rear camera will have a slightly faster aperture, moving af / 1.73 in the Pixel 4 from f / 1.8 on the Pixel 3. Unfortunately, I have not yet seen the specifications of the telephoto camera that is rumored: an earlier leak said that it would use a 16 megapixel sensor, but I have not seen a similarly detailed specification reading like the one we have here for the main camera, which makes me wonder if the telephoto sensor is one of the things that still does not work in this unit.
Another peculiarity: the leaks of the next camera application suggest that the phone will shoot at 16: 9 by default that the photos can occupy the entire screen of the camera, even though the sensor is 4: 3. The effect It is similar to what Apple is doing in the iPhone 11 models, which take advantage of the additional wide-angle lens of the phones to fill the screen. But it seems like a strange movement in the Pixel to take cropped images just to benefit a user interface effect.
The previous application tries to detect hardware components and show all the details about them. It is not clear if it is exactly correct, but the details align largely with the rumors and with the existing Pixel hardware. The telephoto lens does not appear in the photos sent to us and seems not to be detected.
