Google Pixel 4 & 4 XL Smartphones are First to Use Radar

Google’s Flagship 5.7- or 6.3-inch Smartphones for 2019

Google just announced the Pixel 4 (5.7-inch) and Pixel 4 XL (6.3-inch) smartphones which each debut a new feature called MotionSense that uses radar to enable no-touch gestures. What that means is that swipes in the air (above the phone) can work the same as a finger-on-glass swipe would normally function. Google says Pixel 4 is the first-ever smartphone to use this technology.

This video explains the magic of Motion Sense.

With Quick Gestures (powered by Motion Sense), you just need to wave your hand to snooze alarms, dismiss timers, or silence an incoming call. You can even use Quick Gestures to control your music with a swipe while you are multitasking or when the display is off. Furthermore, Pixel 4 detects when you approach it automatically turn on the display or stays off to save battery when you’re not there.

Improved Cameras

Google continues to amaze with improved picture taking. Pixel 4 features a redesigned camera with new features that include a second back camera lens. After combining this lens with Google’s Super Res Zoom technology, you get an entirely new zoom experience and exceptional image quality, even from a distance. In addition, Google is augmenting its HDR+ technology to deliver Live HDR+ and dual exposure controls in the viewfinder. This lets you see exactly what your photo will look like before the photo is captured so you can fine-tune the brightness of different parts of photos with a set of controls designed for modern computational photography.

New Google Assistant

The new Google Assistant also offers an easy and fast way to control your phone and navigate apps on the go. Whether you’re at home, in the car, or on the go, it reinvents multitasking on your phone so you can easily get answers, text and call, look up directions, and manage reminders without losing your focus.

Price & Availability

Both smartphones will be available in all three colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and Oh So Orange on October 24, 2019. Pre-orders are being accepted now across all cellular carriers in the U.S.
