What appears to be a leaked image of Google's upcoming Pixel 4 smartphone shows an unusual trait - a large "forehead."
The forehead is the top part of the bezel, the rim that runs around a phone's screen.
Google was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Business Insider.
Ice Universe's picture shows an array of sensors and front-facing cameras. The Verge notes that some of those sensors could be for the phone's reputed motion-sensing capabilities. The forehead bezel across the top represents a change from the Pixel 3XL's notch, pictured below.

Details about the Pixel 4 started to leak in June, showing a large back-camera. Google's response was to tease an image of the phone four months ahead of schedule.
Although Google hasn't announced a launch or release date, it's expected to unveil the phone in October, as with previous Pixel phones.
Theories about the phone's chin have already been circulating, as Pricebaba released a render of the phone based on "leaked schematics" earlier this month, and the phone has reportedly been spotted in the wild.
