Features, price and technical sheet

Few smartphones have suffered as many leaks as the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, but finally we have them here. Google has presented them in its event today, and with them comes a reinforced bet for the mobile photography – dual camera for the first time in its back – which also provides other interesting news.

Among the novelties is of course the new design with square camera module and without notch, but highlights the new advanced technology of facial and gesture recognition and also a new OLED display with refresh rate 90 Hz which promises an especially smooth and fast interface. Let's get to know the new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL closely.

Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL technical sheet

The jump from Pixel 3 / XL last year is notable in some sections, and it shows for example in the processor, which although it is not the latest Snapdragon 855+ s that It represents an improvement with a Snapdragon 855 which has been with us for a few months and that offers remarkable power.

Pixel 4

Besides that improvement that looks helped by the Pixel Neural Core that replaces the Visual Core and that drives the field of computational photography that Google has so well exploited.

The differences are also noticeable on that screen with refresh rate of 90 Hz and with the jump to 6 GB of RAM For both models. We also won something key like cameras: Google leaves the single sensor and includes a telephoto sensor that will undoubtedly give a lot of play and more versatility in the photographic field.

A design marked by the camera module (and without notch)

The trend of screens without frames has not taken over the new Pixel: Google maintains a certain chin in the lower frame, but it is the upper frame that stands out for a thickness that without being exaggerated is of course sensitive and contrasts with the mobiles of other manufacturers of recent times.

Pixel14

Those frames are there for something, and in particular the superior is the one who hide a good array of sensors: the infrared for facial recognition, the front camera, the ambient brightness and proximity sensor, the speaker, the Soli chip, and the focus triplet, spot projector and additional camera for that advanced facial recognition.

The use of the front is still notable for these terminals: 81% of the front of the Pixel 4 is screen, and in the Pixel 4 XL that percentage rises slightly to 82%.

The rear is the one that certainly makes the most notable difference with its predecessors, and makes use of a square module in which the sensors of the two cameras with which both terminals have are integrated.

That module is located in the upper left of that rear in the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, and makes use of a small protrusin: protrudes slightly from the back cover, which only has a differential detail ms: the presence of a small "G" at the bottom to show clearly that we are facing a mobile from the Google Pixel family.

Several things disappear from that design. Among them, the adis al notch stands out, although here that absence is compensated by the aforementioned upper frame. Nor do we have the two matte and gloss textures we have seen so far in its predecessors, and the rear fingerprint sensor disappears too.

In fact, Google leaves that biometric system and instead bets on your own iPhone Face ID adaptation, with a powerful facial recognition system based on the use of various sensors next to the front camera, as can be seen in that schematic image somewhat above.

On the right side of the phone we will find both the Power button with a different color than the housing, which we will find in three variants: orange, white or black. If we choose the Pixel 4 / XL white or orange that button will be orange, while being white in the black model. On the left side is the SIM slot, which does not have Micro SD support to increase the storage capacity of these devices, a shame.

Pixel10

Google also offer its traditional official housings, rigid and in four different colors (blue, pink, violet and black) and with that particular texture that help differentiate them in addition to protecting them and sounding that protrusion of the camera module.

Welcome, 90 hertz

One of the most striking options of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is that of the 90 Hz refresh rate support, an option that we have seen in some terminals such as the last OnePlus and that seems to be slowly becoming an important (and fantastic) trend in the market.

In the case of Google it is important to point out that the refresh rate can reach 90 Hz, but not always work like this: in fact Google emphasizes the fact that it is a dynamic frequency.

What does that mean? Well, that screen refresh rate adapt to each situation to save battery. It is well known that a constant use of this frequency of work makes the autonomy of the battery cut, so that dynamic philosophy can help the impact is not exaggerated.

Cameras: look mom, now with two instead of one

Google had stayed out of that apparent war for megapixels and especially for increase the number of sensors which integrated into their mobile devices.

Pixel1

Thus, while other manufacturers began to include two, three, four or even 5 rear cameras on their phones, Google achieved with a single camera what most of its competitors do not achieve with several. His prodigious work in the field of computational photography made it possible that the photographic quality of the Pixel has always been outstanding.

However, in Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL there are surprises because for the first time we have two sensors in the back. Google retains the 12.2 Mpx sensor of its previous model, but adds a 16-megapixel tele lens with which it is possible to have a 1.8x optical zoom.

Google's bet is certainly not as striking on paper as that of other manufacturers. That zoom is not as spectacular as the 5x pick that some manufacturers handle, but it is also we don't have that third wide angle sper sensor that is being a very striking trend and appreciated by those looking for maximum versatility in the photographic experience in their phones.

Pixel9

It is hoped that the behavior of these two cameras will make things very difficult for their rivals, especially for that domain of the computational photography that in these models is seen helped by a new chip, the Pixel Neural Core, destined to free the CPU from working in the field of tasks related to artificial intelligence, as is the case with its algorithms for automatic post-processing of images.

In Google also pose a curious novelty although somewhat less: if last year we were surprised with a spectacular night mode, this time have wanted to bet on the astrophotography segment With the special support of that kind of photos.

That option is curious, but in reality the really remarkable thing could come from the other side. The new double exposure mode allows you to control or modify the brightness values ​​of lights and shadows separately in real time before taking the photo in s. That option promises many joys for those who like to refine to the maximum in this area and that could certainly represent a remarkable help in difficult shots.

Google's software now also allow Third-party applications such as Instagram or Snapchat can take full advantage of the camera from the application itself: Sharing photos from the camera application is now easier, but also squeezing it from the native applications that many use to take photos without going to Google's own camera application.

Stop using your finger: facial and gesture recognition arrive

One of the promotional videos that Google shared showed that new commitment to facial recognition that Google has raised in the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

In these models we totally forget the fingerprint reader, because everything will be done through the powerful set of sensors on the front, reminiscent of the Kinect peripheral of the Xbox and that in fact not only provide that advanced facial recognition our "face" is not sent to the cloud, it stays on the device, but also a gesture and movement sensor.

It is in that part where it comes into play Motion sense (internally known as Soli), a technology in which Google has been working for 5 years and that create a kind of "virtual bubble" around the phone and detect what happens.

On the one hand that allows an instant facial recognition that unlocks the screen automatically without having to swipe it with your finger. On the other, interact with the mobile through gestures to for example pass songs or silence it. This technology is specially designed for areas where we use the mobile in hands-free mode, such as in the car or when we cook.

Pixel5

Function is active even with the phone locked and it is even capable of detecting the movement of the fingers, something that poses an advance against the support of gestures that for example we saw earlier in the LG G8 ThinQ. Huawei, by the way, seems to be working on a similar technology.

To this type of control with gestures and to the advanced facial recognition a singular option of the previous models is joined again: Active edge, which allows you to control certain mobile functions, such as activating the voice assistant, squeezing those edges a little when you take it.

Android 10 and a supervitaminated assistant (but not for Spain until 2020)

Google's software bet is as expected: the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be governed by Android 10, the last version of its mobile platform that has been polished with several betas for months and now finally arrive in its final version to these mobiles.

To the many novelties that the new Android 10 brings are added one that has its own relevance: it's the new Google assistant, which we saw during the Google I / O event in May, how it had become a really promising component in different scenarios.

Latency is now almost non-existent for an assistant who responds instantly and more naturally to our questions: everything is processed locally on the phone itself and without a cloud connection, something that accelerates the use of a voice assistant that wins many integers.

Options like the real-time generation of subtitles It is another of those striking options for content that for example we are enjoying on YouTube, something that already exists but is now done with even greater precision.

Most interesting is probably the Real-time audio transcription in the new recorder application, that in the Google demonstration it worked perfectly in English, and to arrive in other languages ​​like Spanish "soon". Not only that: the transcription is done locally on the device, without the need to connect it to Google's servers.

The downside is that the new Google assistant will not be available in all markets: initially all these new features will be available in English, but Spain will have to wait for next year to enjoy them, for example.
