Anonymous, 21 Jun 2019This rear panel is an atrocityAgreed, but everybody wants 64 cameras... so what can you do? I think what upsets me the most is the white power button on the black variant. If that's the case then by definition they can no longer call it 'just black'. Now, it's more like 'almost black' :(
Why not a larger chin in lower portion that would have help in symmetry and stereo speaker could have been placed.
I don't understand why the design of Pixel is going ugly year by year...Need to replace the entire design team with a new team. This will be a disaster. At least they could have copied the concepts from Chinese companies instead of designing such ugly ones.

Kiyasuriin, 21 Jun 2019Copying for the sake of copying... -.-' why going squarish if half of it is not even used? o.oI wouldn't say half of it isn't being used. It looks like they're using a larger camera module and it's unknown how much space the sensor on top takes up.
However, Google has worked with Huawei before on hardware designs, so I wouldn't call it copying if the large square camera set up was a prototype design for a previous iteration of the Pixel. At least Google moved the entire module to the corner instead of having it centered like the 2018 Huawei Mate 30, so it's not a 100% "copy."

Well, at least the bathtub notch is gone. That camera bump is just too much. Google is just making a layered sandwiches here.

A 5-incher version of Pixel 4 plez.. and a colour or two more. Something more interesting like yellow, lime-green, bright orange.. playful ones. White and black are traditional colours but just so bland. Atleast P2XL had the panda thing going on, which was pretty cool.
If you don't got own design-ideas just take iphone back and sony front...Im sorry google, but the pixel 3 was my last pixel phone and I already got rid of it.
Liking that each color of the Pixel 4/XL has its own colored power button. This is definitely the best looking pixel device.
