Google confirms Pixel 4 coming with Motion Sense feature, face unlock support later this year

  • Google Pixel 4 is coming later this year.
  • Google Pixel 4 will come with Motion Sense feature.
  • Google Pixel 4 will be the first-ever phone from the company to come with face unlock support.

Last month, in June, Google confirmed the Pixel 4. The company posted a render of the upcoming Pixel 4 and confirmed that the phone will come with a square-shaped rear camera module. This year even the iPhone 11 series is expected to come with similar square camera module on the rear panel. On Monday, Google officially confirmed some more details about the Pixel 4. Google confirms that the Pixel 4 will come with two new features -- Motion Sense and Face unlock.

Both the Motion Sense and Face unlock features will be seen on a Pixel device for the first-ever time. Google says it has been working on Motion Sense, which the company refers as 'Soil', for the last five years and the Pixel 4 will be the first-ever device from the company to bring this feature to the consumers. Google says, "For the past five years, our Advanced Technology and Projects team (ATAP) has been working on Soli, a motion-sensing radar. Radar, of course, is the same technology that has been used for decades to detect planes and other large objects."

Well, it must be noted that Pixel 4 is the first smartphone to come with Motion Sense feature. We have seen some Sony Ericsson phones come with a similar feature in the past.

So what is Motion Sense? As the name suggests Motion Sense feature lets users use phones without touching it. This feature allows users to operate the phone just by hand movements. "Pixel 4 will be the first device with Soli, powering our new Motion Sense features to allow you to skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls, just by waving your hand. These capabilities are just the start, and just as Pixels get better over time, Motion Sense will evolve as well," the company notes in a blog post.
