More Information About Your Pixel 4
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are Android smartphones from the Google Pixel product line, serving as successors to the Pixel 3.
The phones were officially announced on October 15, 2019, and released in the United States on October 24, 2019. Google confirmed the device’s design in June 2019 after renders of it were leaked online.
In the United States, the Pixel 4 is the first Pixel phone to be offered for sale by all major wireless carriers at launch.
Previous flagship Pixel models had launched as exclusives to Verizon and Google Fi; the midrange Pixel 3a was additionally available from Sprint and T-Mobile, but not AT&T, at its launch. As with all other Pixel releases, Google is offering unlocked U.S. versions through its website.
The Pixel 4 marks the introduction of Motion Sense, a radar-based gesture recognition system. It is based on the Project Soli technology developed by Google ATAP as an alternative to light-based systems such as infrared.
Motion Sense can be used for detecting a user’s proximity to the device to activate the always-on display or power the screen on, and waving gestures that can be used in supported apps (such as skipping tracks in the music player, and an interactive Pokémon demo app).
The Pixel 4 ships with Android 10 and Google Camera 7.1. The devices feature several features powered by their Pixel Neural Core (a successor to the Pixel Visual Core): in addition to its existing use for image processing, it is used by the new Recorder app (a voice recorder with live transcription), and the “new” Google Assistant, which contains enhancements to allow for increased client-side recognition of commands that are local to the device (rather than querying Google servers).
