Google Pixel 4 Boasts Smarter Photos, Built-In Radar

From PC Mag: As expected, Google unveiled the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL at its hardware event in New York City today, and the flagship smartphones are loaded with new features and capabilities across the operating system, machine learning processor, intelligent apps and tools, and especially the camera.

The Pixel 4 with a 5.7-inch OLED display starts at $799, and the 6.3-inch Pixel 4 XL is priced at $899. Both are available for pre-order today and ship on Oct. 24.

The improved screens have a 90Hz smooth display refresh rate and Ambient EQ, which allow the displays to adjust on their own to different lighting conditions.

Google's Pixel 4 devices are the first smartphones with a built-in radar sensor to quickly detect precise motion without using a ton of power. The radar sensor and a bevy of on-device machine learning processes power services like MotionSense, which underpins a number of new action and gesture-based features. MotionSense detects when a user picks up the phone and prepares the camera for faster face recognition, and lets users control the Pixel by simply waving a hand to change a song, dismiss a call, and more.
