The Google Pixel 4 series is coming and among the usual improvements like better cameras and faster processors, there is one new component on leaked Pixel 4 XL images that we have not seen on other phones so far.
Yes, we are talking about that suspiciously large top bezel and more specifically, about the area on the right, where a new sensor resides.
So… what is it?
Just a look at that mysterious hollow on top right inside of #Pixel4XL front panel.
Knowing it’s pretty deep nd seems to be no glass transparency, it’s likely there to accommodate Soli Radar components IMO.

A True Tone sensor?
Other options on the table?
A third suggestion would be that it houses components for a Google-made Face ID system, a secure 3D face identification platform of the kind that iPhones have had ever since the X.
