Google is set to unveil their latest smartphones, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL on October 15 during the Made by Google event.
In an invite sent to select media personnel, the company confirmed the development.
The invite didn’t give much by way of details, but it captions, “Come see a few new things Made by Google”
There were leaks of the device, numerous pictures and including a video.
The rumours suggests that the Pixel 4 XL will have a 6.3” AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, while the Pixel 4 will have a 5.8-inch screen with similar specs.
The phones will rely on face recognition system, which is similar to the iPhone’s.
The battery capacity for the Pixel 4 XL will be 3,700mAh, while the Pixel 4 will get a 2,800mAh battery. Both devices will have 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage.
The main rear cameras will be 12MP Sony IMX363 sensors with f/1.7 aperture, while the telephoto cameras will use 16MP Sony IMX481 sensors.
A gesture sensing feature called Motion Sense will let you perform different actions like changing songs and silencing calls and alarms by waving your hand as seen in the video below. This is the feature it appears google will push in advertising the Pixel 4.
There will also be a feature called “Reach to check phone” that activates the screen when you hover your hand over it to display notifications, time, and other information similar to what we’ve seen on a few Moto phones.
The phone will debut at around $400 for the Pixel 4 and higher for the Pixel 4 XL.
