The back of the device features the familiar square camera cutout with what appear to be two camera cutouts alongside an LED flash. We can also spot a trusty fingerprint scanner in the familiar spot and a subtle Google logo near the bottom.
The side profile reveals a new textured power button that sports a mint green color and sits above the volume rocker. We also get a look inside the phone’s guts though no shot of its display. Based on past rumors we should see a nearly identical design to the Pixel 4a series with a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner. The phone is also said to utilize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset.
