As expected , Google hosted it’s traditional annual Made by Google hardware event in New York today, in which it unveiled not just software, but new hardware devices. The main highlight of the program at the presentation was the announcement of brand new generation of Pixel smartphones.

Google’s Pixel line of smartphone come with the most pure Android system you can have in your pocket.

As the company promised, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones were introduced with a complete new design and features that can not be found in other smartphones.


Among the features introduced is the Motion Sense feature with non-contact gesture control, for the implementation of which miniature radars are used.

Google has brought new “Air Gestures” or Motion sense, as the manufacturer calls it, to Google Pixel 4. Basically, this is the technology that was used on the Galaxy S4 to control the smartphone without touching it.

Motion Sense allows you to do things such as silence calls, alarms, and timers by waving your hand at the smartphone. There are quite a few such uses of Motion Sense, but it remains to be seen how convenient this is as opposed to using a touchscreen.

The smartphone also features a new voice recorder app that transcribes audio recordings even when the Pixel 4 is in airplane mode. As of now English is the only language supported for transcriptions but Google says it plans to add more languages soon.

Google launched the new Pixel smartphones in two models – the usual Pixel 4 and the enlarged Pixel 4 XL. They differ only in the size of the case, the characteristics are completely identical. In the small “Pixel” there is a 5.7-inch OLED display with Full HD resolution, and in the large – 6.3 inches with QHD +.


Both smartphones support a display refresh rate of 90 Hz. This makes the picture smoother and more responsive than on classic 60 Hz screens. It looks like it will soon become the new standard, at least in the flagships.

In earlier Pixel 3 the design of the back cover was separated into glossy and matte parts. In the present Pixel 4 series the back of the glass is evenly painted and only the dual-camera module is highlighted in color.

Both device — Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have the same cameras, processors, RAM and memory options, although there is some change at the resolution level and, of course, battery. Let’s see what Google offers us with its new smartphones.
