At today’s event Made by Google, which ended a few minutes ago in new York city, Google presented not only wireless headphone Buds Pixel 2. It began headlining smartphones of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, which can be safely called the most significant update in the history of line Google Pixel. Despite the fact that new items were just as predicted by rumors and leaks, the weight of the changes makes them one of the most interesting releases of the year.

Google Pixel 4 is the most significant release in the history of line Google Pixel

The appearance of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL is difficult to name outstanding. New items, though different from their predecessors, they discern a distinct common features. Apparently, Google did not aim to hit all the exquisite design, as do Chinese manufacturers, attracting the attention of iridescent colors and premium materials. Here everything as simple as possible. But devices Pixel love is not for fancy looks, but for their ability.

What’s new in Pixel 4

Google introduced the fourth generation of smartphones Pixel

In the fourth generation of smartphones and Google really declined to fingerprint scanner. He was replaced by a face detection technology. About a year ago I was confidentthat the company will make it completely software, all the more that the necessary groundwork was in her possession already, but whether I was too optimistic, whether the face recognition really works best if you use a special set of sensors, but Google made a bid for hardware scan. In the end, to highlight a person in the dark, the backlight brightness can be insufficient, and a laser projector there is no difference to the time of day.

According to Google, the Pixel 4 of the world’s fastest face detection technology. those doing it are sensors Soli, which, at first, ready to scan at the time when the user took the smartphone in your hand, and secondly, it works even under the most extreme angles. As a result, Pixel 4 will be able to identify the owner, even if it is lying on the table. This is a really important feature, which is lacking in iPhone users are forced to hold the smartphone almost parallel to the face so he could read it.

How does Motion Sense

The same sensors are responsible for non-contact control. Motion Sense allows you to interact with Pixel 4 by using the described in the air gestures. This way you can navigate the smartphone interface, to flip through and rewind the music or, for example, to activate silent mode during an incoming call. Probably, to someone it will seem comfortable, but I’m pretty skeptical about this possibility. In the end, it not only limits your options, but also makes a lot of effort in waving his hands over the smartphone.

Camera Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL consists of two, not three modules, as previously assumed, with a resolution of 12 and 16 MP. It turns out that Google has decided not to experiment with the shooting on ultrasonically lens and to bet on the telephoto. Thanks to him, the smartphones can zoom up to eight times without serious loss in quality. Apparently, this result was possible to achieve the combination of optical and digital zoom, which even in the old Google Pixel showed itself only with the best. In my opinion, Google did the right thing, abandoning ultrasonographies lens, because it only spoils the picture, breaking the proportions.
