It's a constellation plot for sure - says it right on the block in the
PNG, but it's all internally generated anyway.  There should be 1
perfect phase, then 3 out of phase points.  No noise - no
phase/frequency offset.  Timing shouldn't be an issue here even if it
were a normal plot.

I think the issue is no matched filter on the other side.  RRC
filtering won't look very appealing to the eye, but RC filtering
should match what you expect.

Try adding a matched RRC filter before you do the constellation.  You
should see the 4 samples/symbol and their trajectories as they
converge onto the 4 nice points.
