Google presented more details of your next cell phone.


Google shared more details of Pixel 4, your next flagship cell phone.

For a few days, the Mountain View giant has leaked details, including the design of his camera. Now he's showing what the phone could do that, like indicated recent rumors, can be controlled with gestures.

In a YouTube video posted on Monday, July 29, Gmostr a gesture-based navigation control system for your next phone. In a joint blog post, the company shared that the phone will have a bezel, as it had been rumored, where to place the Project Soli sensor that will enhance the gesture control function.

In addition to the Soli sensor, the Pixel 4 can be unlocked with the face thanks to a spot projector and infrared sensors similar to those integrated into the iPhone's Face ID system. Google says that by combining these sensors with Soli, the phone could "turn on the unlock sensors proactively" and that its face unlock method will work "in almost any orientation even if you hold it upside down."

Google highlighted the functions of the Soli sensor in the Pixel 4.


In addition to unlocking the phone, the feature can also be used to make payments and register for apps.

Google says that Soli's data and facial unlocking will be saved on the device, and that the image data "will never be saved or shared with other Google services." The company also promised that all facial information will be saved on the Titan M phone chip to ensure data privacy and security.
