Here’s a breakdown of almost every smartphone leak from the last few days.
The leaks below encompass news from April 6th to April 12th, 2019.
Not a lot of devices leaked over the last week; however, one was so crucial that we just had to talk about it.
Google did something so confusing that it left many in the industry surprised. The company decided to confirm rumored leaks and teased its upcoming flagship, the Pixel 4.
In a tweet the company showed off the rear side of its upcoming handset, confirming other recent leaks. Now the phone will feature a square-shaped camera module, à la Huawei Mate 20 Pro, that’ll sport two camera sensors. Additionally, the handset will lack a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, leading everyone to believe it’ll sport an in-display sensor.
