Last year in October, Google launched two new Pixel devices dubbed as Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Pixel 3 has the 18:9 aspect ratio with the thick bezels at top and bottom and its big brother is adopting the notch to achieve high screen to body ratio. The company is working on a new all screen smartphone without any cutout or notch in the screen as the company registered the new patents.
A few days ago company registered a patent on World Intellectual Property Organisation’s website. The newly registered patent gives us the idea of how the upcoming pixel device will look alike.
The patent shows the device with minimal bezels and no notch or cutout in the screen. That means Google is working on a new device without notch so that company might adopt the slider design (patent says different story) or under display sensor tech which we will see in the upcoming Samsung and iPhone lineup (not in S10).
The back looks pretty much same as the Pixel 3/XL. It has the similar design patent as the pixel 3 half textured glass and another half without textured. It still sports the single rear camera and has a fingerprint sensor at the exact same position. While the many OEM is moving towards the In-Display fingerprint sensor Google might hold the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
This isn’t clear that if Google will use this design on their upcoming Pixel 4 lineup or not. Furthermore, The patent doesn’t reveal where the front camera is and also it doesn’t have a sliding camera mechanism.
Google is also working on their budget lineup which will launch sometime in next few months. Google’s budget lineup dubbed Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite specifications have been leaks so make sure to check that out if you’re interested.
