Pixel 4 and 4 XL: Facial unlock, gesture control, more news and rumors

Pixel 4 and 4 XL: Facial unlock, gesture control, more news and rumors

After Google "leaked" unexpectedly a official image of the Pixel 4 in June, the company gave us another gift at the end of July by launching a video on YouTube that shows the facial unlocking technology of the phones and their abilities to detect gestures.

At this point we can only speculate why Google is being so communicative about the details of its next flagship phone. But the important thing is that we continue to know more about the Pixel 4. In addition to its hardware (which includes dual rear camera), the company has also launched the fifth beta version ofAndroid Q.

More than any other model of the Pixel that precedes it, we now have a better understanding and knowledge of Google's next flagship cell phone and what its operating system can do.

The success of Pixel 4 is key to Google. The Pixel 3 and the 3 XL have not sold very well despite their excellent cameras and good critics. This could be due to the fact that the phones are exclusive to Verizon (although they work with other operators in the United States), and because of the fact that consumers are not buying as many phones as before. The phones are also expensive, something that Google tried to address when launching the mid-range phones Pixel 3A Y Pixel 3A XL in May. Problems have also been reported with the performance of Pixel 3, although in CNET we have not encountered these problems. Google needs to resolve these issues with the Pixel 4 if it wants to increase sales and take competitive advantage against Apple and Samsung.

Google will have to solve all these problems with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL if it wants to increase sales. Although there are still several months for its launch, the Pixel 4 is the maximum representative of an Android device willing to compete with the strong opponents of Apple and Samsung.

Without further delay, this is all we know so far of the anticipated Google phones.

Google confirms Pixel 4 design

Google, citing the immense interest in the phone, public an image of the back of the Pixel 4 in your official product account on Twitter.

In the image it is revealed that the Pixel 4 has a double rear camera, a significant change from the previous Pixel. The cell phone will have a square module with the two cameras, the flash, maybe an autofocus laser and a microphone.

Google confirms facial unlocking in Pixel 4

Google confirmed on July 29 that the Pixel 4 will have sensors to detect gestures and facial unlocking. The company released a video and a blog that shows that the Pixel 4 will have a Project Soli chip. This will allow the Pixel 4 to have facial unlocking, which is similar to Apple's Face ID technology, and the function will be secure enough to verify digital payments. The chip can also detect movements and allow you to "skip songs, silence alarms and calls" just by moving your hand in front of the phone.

In fact, it had already been rumored that the Pixel 4 will have this Project Soli technology.

Project Soli is a technologybased on a miniature radar that promises to recognize with great precision the movement of your hands and fingers at a certain distance to be able to interact with different devices.
