Search-engine giant Google is expected to refresh its Pixel series with two new offerings — Pixel 4 and 4 XL — later in October, details of which have been leaked online.

According to the rumours, the Pixel 4 device would come with a square camera module at the back which would house a dual rear camera setup.

This is new because until now, all Pixel models have only had a single camera sensor at the back.

The speculation also suggest that the phone would either have an in-display fingerprint sensor or a 3D face unlock module at the front, or both.

The bottom edge of the phone seems to feature two external speakers with a USB-C port in between.
