Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL bring better gesture control and night photos | Cell phone

O Google announced the Pixel 4, together with his older brother named Pixel 4 XL, and they are exactly identical to the recent leaks. The devices have two cameras on the back, are the first smartphones with a motion radar, and make night photos even better than the previous generation.

Even with an extra camera and tricks under the hood, what draws attention in the two Pixel 4 smartphones is the radar that detects movements. It was born under the name of Project Soli and its sensor was decreasing in size until it could be inserted into the top of the smartphone.

It is used to add gesture controls that can pause a song or put a ringtone on silent, in addition to recognizing when the user’s hand is coming in and activating facial recognition more quickly. It is even possible to decrease the noise of the alarm clock, when the Pixel 4 detects that the hand is reaching for the cell phone.

Unlike the G8S ThinQ, which uses the front camera to recognize gestures, the Pixel 4’s radar does the job by consuming less energy and with greater precision.

Google Pixel 4 has two lenses instead of one

The Pixel line devices have always brought the solution of the world of multiple cameras in just one lens – and in a very satisfactory way. In Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, the search giant has accepted that optical zoom can be interesting and has placed an extra lens, which zooms in on the object twice.

The main sensor is 12.2 megapixels, with an aperture of f / 1.7 and the secondary sensor is 16 megapixels, with an aperture of f / 2.4 and a telephoto lens. Google says it uses a kind of “super resolution” with optical zoom and makes a hybrid, which is nothing more than image interpolation in the stretched pixels.

But, really, the novelty is the improvement of the already well-spoken night mode. With Pixel 4 it is possible to take photographs of the starry sky, or else display the milky way in detail. In addition, the HDR + gained fine adjustments to choose between dark or lighter areas, with a preview of the photo in real time on the device’s screen.

Finally, the Google Assistant that comes with both of today’s releases can respond to more commands locally, without sending everything to the cloud.

90 Hz OLED screen

The Pixel 4 screen is a 5.7-inch OLED with Full HD + resolution, with 6.3 inches, QHD + resolution (1440 × 3040 pixels) on the Pixel 4 XL and both versions have a 90 Hz refresh rate. processor is a Snapdragon 855, with 6 GB of RAM and options of 64 GB or 128 GB of internal space, with no possibility of expansion with memory cards.

In both models the front camera is 8 megapixels and f / 2.0 aperture, with ToF depth sensor for facial recognition. Android 10 comes standard and has three years of guaranteed version updates, plus security fixes for the same period.
