As we have heard in the recent months, the Google Pixel 4 will feature Motion Sense technology based on Project Soli, a Google project that aims to manage the interface through gestures without touching the screen.
However, according to the Pixel 4 Best Buy page, Motion Sense functionality will not work in Japan. As we can read, Google will enable this functionality in the United States, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan and “most European countries.”

Google Motion Sense
We do not know why Motion Sense will not work in Japan or other countries, although it could be because Google has not yet obtained permission to use Motion Sense technology based on Soli radars in consumer products in certain countries.
Motion Sense uses Soli radars to detect contactless gestures. For example, you can skip songs, postpone alarms or silence incoming calls with a hand movement. Face Unlock also uses the Soli radar to activate the two Pixel 4 face unlock sensors and unlock the phone as quickly as possible.
It is worth to mention that yesterday. A recent listing of the Google Pixel 4 by FCC shows that this smartphone has four models. According to reports, the four models include “G020I”, “G020J”, “G020MN” and “G020PQ”. The report claims that Google requested a network band similar to 5G. However, this does not imply that there will be a 5G variant because Google’s Project Soli support similar frequency.
From the speculations so far, the Pixel 4 will come with a 1,080 x 2,280 pixels display resolution. As for the Pixel XL, it will use a display with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,040 pixels. Both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL uses a better display resolution than the previous generation. Furthermore, there are reports that this device will use a 90Hz display.
Google usually holds its hardware events in October. And the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were announced on October 9 last year. Verizon leaked information suggests that Google will present its next flagship next October.
