Google Pixel 4 has been priced at $799 (roughly Rs 56,000) in the US for the base variant, whereas the Pixel 4 XL would be available for $899 (roughly Rs 63,000).
The wait is finally over. Google has launched the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in the US. The new Android flagship by Google comes with an all-new design and features like Motion sensing, improved cameras. Alongside Pixel 4, Google also launched a bunch of new smart products like the Nest Mini, the Pixelbook Go and more.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL feature 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch OLED display, respectively. Both the smartphones get a 90Hz refresh rate display for a better scrolling and responsive experience. While the Pixel 4 has a Full HD+ display, the Pixel 4 XL gets a Quad HD+ resolution screen. As rumoured, Google has ditched the notch in favour of a thick bezel at the top for housing some Motion sensing sensors and facial recognition.
Motion Sense eliminates the need for touching the Pixel 4 to perform basic tasks using hand gestures. The feature works by just waving or swiping your hand above the phone to perform tasks like changing music or silent an incoming call. Motion Sense uses Google’s Project Soli technology, which the company has been working on for five years.
On the privacy front, Google said that Motion Sense processing happens locally and can be disabled at any time. Unfortunately, as of now, Motion Sense won’t be available in India.
