During the event in New York, Google introduced the Pixel 4 and 4 XL smartphones.
The devices will go on sale in the US on October 24 and will cost from $ 799. Google introduced two flagship smartphones – a 5.7-inch Pixel 4 and its enlarged version 4 XL with a 6.3-inch screen, the resolution is 3040 x 1440 pixels and Full HD +, respectively .
Both use OLED panels with a 90 Hz image refresh rate, which Google called the Smooth Display.
The main feature of these new products is a non-contact gesture system that allows you to control devices and answer calls with a wave of your hands. The new Motion Sense function allows you to control part of the functions of a smartphone by gestures, for which the Soli motion sensor is responsible. It is a miniature radar that recognizes the gestures of one hand, which allows you to control your smartphone without touching the screen.
The smartphone user can, for example, reject an incoming call with a wave of his hand or switch a song. The sensor is also responsible for face recognition technology.
Both models are equipped with a main 16-megapixel lens (f / 2.4) – with a hybrid optical stabilization system and a 52-degree viewing angle – and an auxiliary 12.2-megapixel telephoto (f / 1.7) with a viewing angle of 77 °.
The sensors are located on a rectangular “island” in the corner on the rear panel, along with an LED flash and a microphone. The front camera is 8-megapixel.
It supports video shooting up to 4K at a speed of 30 fps and slow motion in 1080p resolution and at a speed of 120 fps. Inside smartphones are an 8-core Snapdragon 855 chip with 6 gigabytes of RAM and a flash drive with a capacity of 64 or 128 GB, depending on the configuration.
The Pixel 4’s battery capacity is 2800 mAh, while the XL version has a lot more – 3700 mAh, which is slightly compared to Chinese and Korean competitors, in which the battery capacity can reach up to 5000 mAh (for example, Samsung Galaxy M30s).
