Google has finally revealed that it will launch the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL smartphones at an event in New York on October 15. The invites sent to the reporters in the US reads, ‘Come see a few new things Made by Google’, hinting that the company may launch a few products in addition to the fourth generation of Pixel devices. Although, several leaks and reports have already given an idea of what to expect from the phones, what’s confirmed is that the phone will sport a dual-camera setup on the back with a third sensor likely to be a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. Google has also announced that the phones will come with Soli, a radar chip for hands-free actions. However, it may not work in India.
As mentioned, rumour mill suggests that the phones will sport 90Hz displays, which will be found under ‘Smooth Display’ setting in the ‘Display Setting’ of the Pixel 4 smartphones. The XL variant may feature a 6.3-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3030 pixels. In comparison, the non-XL variant Pixel 4 is said to come equipped with 5.7-inch OLED display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 3030 pixels.
Under the hood, both the phones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB RAM. While the bigger variant is said to ship with a 3700mAh battery, a 2800mAh battery is likely ship with the smaller variant. As mentioned above, the Pixel 4 phones will be the first devices with Soli, which will allow you to skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls just by waving your hand. Motion Sense will be only available in select countries, Google had hinted recently. Google had said that its Advanced Technology and Projects team (ATAP) has been working on Soli motion-sensing radar for the past five years. For the Pixel 4, Google has developed a miniature version of a radar, which is located at the top of Pixel 4.
