Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: At a glance
Right of the bat, the Pixel 4 series will feature a notch-less display with slim bezels on three sides and a thick top bezel. Google has adopted this "forehead design" to pack sensors for Motion Sense (more on that later) and Face Unlock features. On the rear, the phones will offer a monochrome glass panel that will house a new square-shaped multi-sensor camera system.
All about Motion Sense and Face Unlock
Notably, Google has already confirmed that Motion Sense and Face Unlock features are coming to the Pixel 4 series. Motion Sense is a Soli radar-powered feature that uses software algorithms and hardware sensor to recognize touch-free gestures. Moreover, the phones will also come with an IR-camera based Face Unlock feature that will use the Soli radar to offer a seamless unlocking experience.
Google Pixel 4 series to offer 90Hz OLED displays
Now, going by a recent leak, the Pixel 4 will feature a 5.8-inch full-HD+ OLED screen while the XL model will get a larger and sharper 6.3-inch QHD+ OLED display. The screens on both the handsets will also support a 90Hz refresh rate to allow for smoother scrolling and swiping experience, more fluid animations, as well as an overall better gaming experience.
