Pixel 4 to get touch-less gestures, Face ID-like scanner

The Google Pixel 4 design leak has been all around the Internet and while we’ve seen a notch-free design, we know that it’s not going to be a bezel-free one now. More specifically, the top. Google has just shown off that exact element of the Pixel 4 which leaked in CAD renders with a post today. But of course, that’s not what we’re more interested in talking about. Google’s official post has revealed two very interesting features that Pixel 4 will have. One of them is something that currently no available commercial smartphone can gloat about – Soli a motion-sensing radar- which will be housed in the top bezel.

This feature although has been demonstrated (Project Soli) earlier has not been available to the public yet but it looks like Google has finally nailed it. It uses a motion-sensing chip to track movements close to the display and will allow the user to interact with the display without touching it. Now, you might be wondering what the use cases will be for this kind of technology, but as a technology enthusiast, it will be really nice to see this new piece of hardware inside a Google phone.

Also, Google has now confirmed a Face ID-like feature taking a jibe at Apple in the process. This is why we could see the search giant axe the fingerprint reader completely on its Pixels this year.  Google also has a short video teaser for the two features in case my jumbled words just didn’t make sense.
