Naturally, this got the rumour mill riled up, but now in an unprecedented move, Google made a decision to one up the recent fan renders with the first official picture of the Pixel 4. Obviously, they are responding to the recent leaks and alleged case moulds for their upcoming Pixel 4 series, and their tweet has confirmed what we've seen so far. Well, it seems Google was so thrilled with the amount of attention they were getting that it chose to confirm the leaked design is accurate. The Pixel 2 may not have been the flashiest phone during its time, but its next-level camera and clean software allowed it to stand out as one of the best Android phones of that time.

Google unveiled images of its forthcoming flagship Pixel 4 smartphone on Twitter Wednesday. That's notable because Google's previous three Pixel phones have only had a single rear camera. Not only does this strategy give Google more freedom to control leaks, but also allows it to gauge the interest of Pixel 4 among true fans. There is no fingerprint sensor on the back this time so it will likely be embedded within the display.

With most of the year's smartphones launched, there are only a couple of major launches still to come.

Google has never posted an image of an upcoming phone before an announcement, at least not intentionally. We know more leaks and rumors will go public but perhaps to stop them all, Google has chose to join the game.

In anticipation of the cyclone, 70 trains had been cancelled and schools and colleges along the coastline had been closed. The Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force and the Border Security Force have been put on high alert.

Last year, a list of leaks and rumours revealing the Pixel 3 hit the Web world ahead of its official launch.

The Pixel 4 should hit stores in October, so production will start soon. Therefore, stay tuned to Fossbytes for all the Pixel 4 updates you need. Now, there is a possibility that Google could be trolling everyone but for the sake of this article and until proven otherwise, we will assume this is the actual design.

Of course, one naturally wonders why Google did this. So with a hand gesture you can silence the ringer, say. The image also shows no rear fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, which is a first for the Pixel.
