The Google Pixel 4 is sure to win a bunch of industry awards at the end of the year. Unfortunately, a beauty contest probably won't be one of them. With its single-tone finish and protruding rear camera, it's looking far less attractive than the average flagship smartphone.
Just when you thought it was unlikely to get any worse, a new leak has revealed a hideous orange/coral colour scheme. Here are the photos.
The Google Pixel releases have always come in three colours but dare I say, none so bold. The Pixel 3 came in standard black and white as well as a light shade of pastel pink. Before that, some came in 'Kinda Blue', a greyish-blue shade, as well as 'Really Blue', a similarly daring royal blue.
Previously, it was anticipated the third colour might be a much more subtle mint green, according to Forbes. But if the leak turns out to be true, Google is going for a vibrant 2019 look. It's called fashion darlings, look it up.
Specs-wise, it's rumoured to be a beast. While the battery is a little lower than we hoped, both the Pixel 4 and its larger sibling, the XL, is expected to feature a Snapdragon 855 chip and 6-gigabytes of RAM with a 64-gigabyte or 128-gigabyte option available.

The Google Pixel 4 is expected to be announced in October.
Google's Pixel smartphone series is known for its software rather than its sleek designs. Their upcoming Pixel 4 seems to be no exception. Which is a polite way of saying it looks like a dead dog's arse.
