The official presentation of the updated Pixel line is scheduled for October 15. Previously, Google revealed how its flagships look, as well as how Motion Sense technology works.

Google has demonstrated a face scanner and contactless control

Google will embed several modules in Pixel 4 and 4 XL, in addition to the front camera. The company called this system Soli – it can scan a person’s face and determine hand movements.

The main function of the Soli module is face scan to unlock the smartphone. Unlike other smartphones, the infrared camera in the Pixel 4 will scan the face even before the person turns on the screen. So to unlock it will not even have to press the power button.

But even with its help, you can control the smartphone with a hand movement without touching the screen. You can hold your palm in front of the camera and switch music or reject a call. The new contactless control feature is called Motion Sense. The company promises that more gestures will appear in the future.

In Pixel 4, the company will abandon the fingerprint scanner and completely switch to face scanning. Also, the smartphone will have a dual camera. Presentation of the line of “pixels” will be held in early October.

    The Google Pixel 4 facial recognition works even if you're asleep / dead.
    That seems problematic!



    The feature was reported by BBC News - their reporter Chris Fox clearly demonstrated blind unlocking on his Twitter. According to the BBC, the situation repeated when tested on different people. On the images of devices that got into the network before the release, a screen with the settings of the face recognition system was noticeable. There was an inscription "Open your eyes to unlock", but in the devices provided by the BBC for testing this inscription was no longer there. Google has confirmed that they are not going to return this warning to the release version.

    However, Google does not hide features. On the support page, a separate paragraph indicates that someone very similar to you or someone who brings the phone to your face when you are asleep can use the face recognition unlock. For those who are not comfortable with this state of affairs, it is proposed to enable entry blocking.

    Google has designed a 5G smartphone that will be released before Apple does.

    Google hopes to capture the smartphone market, or rather, its segment, which is now significantly influenced by Apple. Google expects to do this with its smartphones that support 5G technology. According to Nikkei (Asian Review), referring to its sources in the company, the corporation has already begun to test the finished prototype of the 5G smartphone, moreover, the phone can be presented next week.



    Probably, the new devices will be shown on October 15 - on this day the search giant will introduce two new 4G Pixel smartphones. In addition, it is reliably known that at the same time the company will show its new smart watch and laptop. In general, the presentation is promised to be held entirely in accordance with Apple standards. And this is no coincidence.

    In my opinion, smartphone manufacturers need to get away from making exclusively "jewelry". The "thinner is better" concept is a loser in the end since to do so compromises battery life and product durability. Manufacturers should also offer phones that can be more competitively priced yet be durable enough to take the occasional drop on the kitchen floor or accidentally dropping the phone in the ocean or pool.

    Caterpillar offers an Android phone for industrial and personal use and I think they are on to something. Smartphone manufacturers can make products for both markets and see which will be more successful. The more durable phones can reduce consumer out of pocket costs for accessories to protect their phones while helping to gain loyalty and longevity of their products.
