Neither score nor hole in the screen nor popup camera; Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be among the few cell phones from 201
But no matter how many times we have it When the new terminals of Google appeared, those of Mountain View still seem to have one or two ace up their sleeve which somehow justifies the existence of this pronounced frame – at least compared to what this is today – on the front of the Pixel 4.
What hides the top of the Pixel 4 screen?
Before we start talking On what houses the front of the new pixel, we have to go back to January this year. By one of the first builds that came out of Android 10 Q, it was discovered that the source code of the new version of the system contained references to the existence of support for hardware-based face unlock systems like the latest Apple iPhone.
This should not surprise anyone at first, as more and more manufacturers rely on these types of systems, and Google's most logical step was to implement the APIs required so that Unlocking the Face was a method used by the Operating system was supported natively. Of course, knowing the background of Google, it is easy to believe that this move was a way to prepare for the arrival of a future pixel with face recognition .
And in fact only a few months until first indications of the existence of an advanced biometric method in Pixel 4 on the basis of facial recognition emerged . The information was shared by the famous youtuber UnboxTherapy, which in some way had access to models of phones that had been created based on official design schemes. This is exactly what was stated in the video:
"The reason that the Pixel 4 has a big front is that it will contain much more technology in this section, there will be a total of 5 sensors in this generation, and the suggestion will be similar to Apple's, and the device lacks any fingerprint reader. "
Therefore, it is very likely today that Pixel 4 will introduce a face recognition system . And if the previous clues were not revealing enough, the Android Q system settings recently discovered the existence of a new "fake authentication" menu.
Soli, Aware and Gesture Control
But I am very much afraid that the face unlock will not be the only surprise that will hide the sensors of this phone pair . Through his Twitter profile, the prestigious Leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as OnLeaks published an image extracted from one of Google Pixel 4's design schemes In the upper right corner There is a "deep" and "no transparent" hole. There are a number of sensors in this hole. You can also see the holes for the speaker, the proximity sensor, and the ambient light both front cameras –
Just a glimpse of this mysterious depression in the top right corner of the inside # Pixel4XL Front Panel
If you know that it is quite deep and has no glass permeability, it is probably there to accommodate solos radar components IMO.

This leads us directly to reflection in signs practically confirming the inclusion of soli technology in Google Pixel 4 . Those who are not very familiar with this technology should know that this is a project that Google has been working on for several years and for which the company wanted to offer smartphones, smartwatches or other products from . A gesture control system that does not require physical contact with the device itself.
In the portal, XDA developers discovered lines in the code of Android Q that refer to new features from Google Pixel 4, which would require a sensor called "Aware" which will allow it, among other things would control music playback or activate silent mode all this probably without having to touch the phone
Finally, another sensor that could be part of Google Pixel 4's frontal system is the so-called "color" sensor, which is also included in the androi code d Q refers to the new pixel. This sensor would automatically adjust the white balance of the screen based on the ambient lighting, similar to the TrueTone technology of the latest iPhone.
In short, seems to be pretty clear that Pixel 4's technology will go up in the level and unlike Google's Pixel 3 XL and its monstrous score, ] on this occasion, the existence of a more or less pronounced scope will be justified . All that remains to be seen now is how all these sensors complement each other and how Google wants to leverage existing technology, such as solos, to make sense of it, adding real value to the end user.
