Google has announced the successors to its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices in the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Here is everything we know regarding the new Pixel 4 smartphone, including what they offer, how much they cost and when they will be available.
Google Pixel 4 features:
Pixel 4 release date:
Announced 15 October 2019
Pre-orders open now
Ships 21 October 2019
Google announced the Pixel 4 and 4 XL on 15 October during its Made by Google event in New York City.
The Phones are available to pre-order from 15 October and they will be available to buy on 24 October. Shipping will be available from 21 October.
The Google Pixel 4 starts at £669/$799 for the 64GB model, jumping to £769 for the 128GB model.
The Google Pixel 4 XL starts at £829/$899 for the 64GB model and jumps to £929 for the 128GB model. Both are available in Just Black, Clearly White and Oh So Orange color options.
Pixel 4 camera
Dual rear camera
2-megapixel, f/1.7 main camera
16-megapixel, f/2.4 telephoto camera
8-megapixel, f/2.0 front camera
The Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL have a dual-camera system in a square housing positioned in the top left of the device. The dual camera is comprised of a 12-megapixel main sensor and a 16-megapixel telephoto sensor moving on from the single sensor offered by the Pixel 3.
New features on the Google Pixel camera include a boost to Night Sight, introducing an astrophotography function that will let you shoot stars and planets, allowing really long exposures, taking multiple frames and knitting them together.
There’s a range of AI improvements to boost Night Sight and HDR performance, the portrait shooting is said to be better and there’s also an advanced system to determine the correct white balance.
One of the unique things is a dual exposure option that will let you adjust the foreground exposure in a scene independent from the background. This gives you more creative control for the pictures you take.
The Google Pixel 4 has a 5.7-inch screen and the Pixel 4 XL has a 6.3-inch display for 2019. Both displays offer 90Hz refresh rates, like the OnePlus 7 Pro, offering a smooth and slick experience. Both offer an OLED display.
The Pixel 4 and 4 XL also come with a range of sensors in a bezel at the top of the display, allowing for motion gestures and face unlock. This means no notch for either Pixel device this year, with both opting for bezels at the top and bottom of the display.
The Pixel 4 has a Full HD+ resolution for a pixel density of 444ppi, while the Pixel 4 XL has a Quad HD+ resolution for a pixel density of 537ppi. Both have a 19:9 aspect ratio and both support HDR.
Google Pixel 4 Motion Sense and gesture :
Another new feature on the Google Pixel 4 is Motion Sense. This enables you to use gesture controls to perform simple tasks when touching the screen of your smartphone isn’t convenient (such as when you’re driving, cooking or working out).
We’ve already seen gesture control built into smartphones, with the LG G8 one of the more recent devices to offer it, but instead of using a camera for this, the Pixel 4 comes with a radar chip embedded into the bezel above the screen.
The radar chip provides a wider, 180-degree field of view that allows the Pixel 4 to detect your hand from further away. Google says it’s been working on the tech for five years – however, its first public outing is extremely limited.
The Infrared and tiny radar to let you unlock the Pixel 4 with your face. The Pixel 4 and 4L are the first Android phones with face unlock that’s secure enough to be used for payments with Google Pay as well as with password apps.
Motion Sense can detect three things: presence, reach and gestures. With presence, the phone detects whether you’re near the device. If you are, it’ll power-on the always-on display, and when you move away it’ll turn the display off to preserve power.
Reach will wake the phone to display the lock screen (and show any notifications you may have) when you move your hand towards it to pick it up.
The most interesting of the trio is gesture detection, which lets you wave a hand over the handset to perform certain functions. For now, it only allows for basic control such as skipping between music tracks (you can’t use gestures to play/pause or adjust volume), silencing alarms/timers and hanging up calls.
Gestures are also only supported by a handful of applications at launch, including YouTube Music, YouTube, Spotify, the phone app and the clock app. Apps that are compatible will display a white glow animation at the top of the screen, giving you a visual cue that the feature is available.
In the gesture control demo, we were shown, the Pixel 4 effectively picked up the hand-waving around it, but we’ll have to spend more time with the phone to see how this feature performs in day-to-day use.
Pixel 4 features and hardware
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is the chipset of choice for the Pixel 4 devices, with 6GB of RAM support. Neither offers microSD for storage expansion but both run on pure Android 10. The two models are available in 64GB and 128GB storage capacities.
In terms of battery capacities, the Pixel 4 has 2800mAh, while the Pixel 4 XL is 3700mAh. Both offer 18W fast charging support and they are also wireless charging compatible too.
The Pixel 4 and 4 XL also both have Google’s Soli radar chip that allows for the face unlock technology and Motion Sense.
