The Google Pixel 4 that was launched last year came in three colours - the Oh So Orange, Clearly White and Just Black. Now, a fourth colour has been spotted on a prototype device, the pictures of which are doing the rounds on Twitter, and this is a colour we have not seen before.

This purported Pixel 4 XL prototype has been spotted listed for sale on a Chinese auction site called Taobao and was spotted first by XDA Developers and Twitter user akes29. The phone sports a grey colour - starkly different from all the colours we have seen on the Pixel before.

Android Authority ran the displayed IMEI number through a few IMEI checking utilities and the device looked legitimate. But as XDA pointed out, there is a possibility that the seller may have "swapped out a balck, white or orange Pixel 4 XL cover in favour of a third-party gray back".

But an entirely new colourway is not impossible for a previously released smartphone. OnePlus had a gold option for the OnePlus 7T that was seen in November last year.
