Google’s latest success with its Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL phones has created added interest in what to expect from its next iteration of smartphones, the Google Pixel 4 and the Google Pixel 4 XL. The company decided to share the image of the rear panel of the Google Pixel 4 recently, showing the square bump camera module with two cameras in it.
There are however other leaks on social media about the specs the new phones will come with. This particular piece of information from OnLeaks talks about the possible dimensions of the two new phones and the display sizes.
If you went by this prediction, the Google Pixel 4 will have dimensions reading 147 mm x 68.9 mm x 8.2 mm. Notice that the thickness is 8.2 mm against the 7.9 mm thickness of the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL. The display size is being predicted to be between 5.6 and 5.8 inches. The phone’s aspect ratio is likely to be increased keeping the same width as before.
– #Pixel4 = Likely between 5.6-inch and 5.8-inch display + roughly 147.0 x 68.9 x 8.2 mm (9.3 including rear camera bump)
– #Pixel4XL = Likely between 6.2-inch and 6.4-inch display + roughly 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2 mm (9.3 including rear camera bump)

Google Pixel 4 XL
Coming to the Google Pixel 4 XL, the OnLeaks tweet says the dimensions of this phone will be 160.4 mm x 75.2 mm x 8.2 mm. The display size is likely to be 6.2 to 6.4 inches. This means there may not be a huge variation from the Google Pixel 3 XL. The higher thickness could mean a bump in the battery size which is only a speculation at this juncture. The camera bump has already increased the thickness of the phone to 9.3 mm at that point.
Google has chosen to share only the rear panel image leaving the front of the smartphone to your imagination. There is no dearth of speculation here too. There have been leaked images of the phone’s cover indicating that there will be a dual front camera with a hole punch on the top left corner of the Google Pixel 4 XL. That image showed a dual speaker system as well, one at the top and one at the bottom. There is even a suggestion these could be stereo speakers, again a fact to be confirmed.
Much of these will become clearer as we move towards October when Google will unveil these smartphones.
