Last year's Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL leaked so muchWe did not think that any telephone could leak more than that. We spoke clearly too soon. If you've been following leaks and rumors over the past few months, you're probably already familiar with the new Google smartphones, Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL. The company has finally announced two smartphones at its Made By Google 2019 event, and we have all the details here.
Google Assistant, but do it faster
The new and improved Google Assistant is deeply integrated into the Pixel 4 software, which greatly reduces response time. Both new phones have a built-in version of the Google language models that work in its data centers. This means that interaction with the Google Assistant will occur on the device without having to send requests to Google data centers before receiving a response. Of course, there are limitations – for simple tasks, such as starting a timer, the assistant will do all this on the device. For more complex tasks, such as requesting flight or weather information, an assistant will need to transfer this work to Google data centers.
The assistant on Pixel 4 phones now supports continued conversations, which is the first for smartphones. This will allow you to ask an additional question to the assistant without having to pause to say another hot word.
Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL are running Android 10 out of the box. A little has changed aesthetically, but there are several new additions to this year's Pixels. Pixel Launcher now has a shortcut to pull off the notification shadow with a single swipe of the finger. There is also a new Pixel Themes app that lets you choose the font, wallpaper, accent color, and more.
Google also pre-installs the new Recorder app on Pixels, which will transcribe the sound from each voice recording and let you search for it. It seems pretty convenient.
As standard, the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL come with three free Google One cloud storage for new members. Unfortunately, Google does not include free unlimited backups of original photos in Google Photos, as was the case with the Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 3.
A + displays
Apparently, this year Google nailed the display on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL. DisplayMate has awarded Google A + rating and award for best smartphone display. The displays on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are 90 Hz displays – Google calls them Smooth Displays – and they can be switched between 60 and 90 Hz in the settings menu. Recently, displays with a higher refresh rate are growing in popularity, and we are pleased that the new Google phones support this feature.
Swipe right with Motion Sense
Pixel 4 and 4 XL, according to Google, have the fastest face unlock system on any smartphone. This is possible thanks to the new Soli motion-sensitive chip next to the front camera sensor.
This year, Google turned off the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and instead turned on secure face recognition. Pixel 4 phones come with two IR cameras with face unlock, spot projector and spotlight. These sensors are similar to what we saw in devices like the iPhone 11 and LG G8. Using these sensors, Pixel 4 will be able to create an accurate model of your face, make sure that it is you, and unlock your phone. What's more, the Soli chip in the Pixel 4 will actively include face unlock sensors so you can quickly access your phone.
These are not all Google's motion-sensitive Soli chips. Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL has a new feature called Motion Sense, which will allow phones to feel the movement of users. Using Motion Sense, users can change the song, set aside alarms, and turn off calls with a wave of their hand. Unfortunately, this feature is only available in some countries.
The Pixel line has never been about top-notch specs.
Elsewhere, the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL have the same specifications. Both have Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC (unfortunately not Snapdragon 855 Plus), 6 GB of RAM (two gigabytes more than the Pixel 3), 64 or 128 GB of internal memory, no microSD expansion and no headphone jack. Unfortunately, this time Google also does not ship a pair of headphones.
Connected: Full list of features of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL
What we are not very happy with is the capacity of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL batteries. The Pixel 4 has a 2800 mAh battery (115 mAh less than the Pixel 3), while the Pixel 4 XL has a 3700 mAh battery (270 mAh more than the Pixel 3 XL). These displays with a frequency of 90 Hz, as you know, pretty much work on battery power. Also, given the fact that the Pixel 3 has terrible battery life, we hope Google does something so that Pixel 4 users can do this all day without having to charge in the middle of the day.
Live HDR +, astrophotography and training-based white balance
Google finally jumped on a train with two cameras. Both Pixel 4 and 4 XL models are equipped with a 12-megapixel sensor with a reverse orientation and a 16MP telephoto lens for 2x zoom. This will lead to wider portrait shots, as there are now two lenses for capturing depth information. There is also a flight time sensor (ToF) on the rear panel to accurately determine distance and depth.

Live HDR + is a new feature introduced in the Pixel 4 and 4 XL. This will allow users to preview HDR + processing in the camera application. before take pictures A new feature called “Double Exposure” allows users to adjust the shadows and highlights in the picture before shooting. This is already possible to do after the fact in photo editing applications, so this new feature is likely to save users a lot of time.
Google also focuses (ha) on improving white balance. Pixel 4s supports white balance based on machine learning in all photo modes, not just in Night Sight mode, like in Pixel 3. This will result in more accurate colors throughout the field, not just in Night Sight mode.
Google is working on improved astrophotography in Pixel 4. With Night Sight, Pixel 4 will darken and remove noise from the sky using computer photography. You can read more about astrophotography on Pixel 4 here.
Google provided Android Authority with a few sample Pixel 4 cameras:
