iGeeksBlog and OnLeaks have published the best look yet at Google’s smaller-sized Pixel 4. Thankfully, the newest model won’t adopt the ugly notch from last year’s Pixel 3 XL, but it does lose the Pixel 3a’s 3.5 mm headphone jack. Also missing is the fingerprint sensor, which implies some kind of facial recognition system for unlocking.

Overall, the Pixel 4 is shaping up to be the XL model’s smaller identical twin. The phone will measure in at roughly 5.6 inches (147.0 x 68.9 x 8.2 mm) and feature a bulky camera bump comprising two lenses, a ToF (time-of-flight) sensor for resolving distance, and LED flash.

On the front, we can see two lenses; one for facial recognition and other for portrait selfie. ToF sensor is a camera itself, which identifies the object and calculates the distance between the camera and the object. While capturing the object, ToF will blur other elements in real-time; this was earlier done by software once the photo was captured.
