The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL should be presented during the month of October, but leaks about them are already numerous and we already know a lot about them. The most interesting is of course the presence of Soli sensor to detect very finely the gestures of the user. But his interest should go beyond simple gestures.
Indeed, this sensor should also improve the facial recognition of the phone and the latest leaks point in this direction. Photos found on Weibo and shared by 9to5Google reveal a supposed Google Pixel 4 showing some parameters.
An improved facial recognition system
In these photos, the page dedicated to facial recognition indicates that the latter can work even with glasses, or with “light” sunglasses. By translating Chinese ideograms, 9to5Google also reveals that biometric data should be stored locally and can be deleted by the user.
The text, translated from Chinese, also evokes certain points such as the recognition of a family member and the detection of the movement of the eyes. It is easy to imagine that these are indications of safety, recalling that unlike others, the facial recognition of Pixel 4 should not be deceived by similar traits.
The abandoned fingerprint sensor
Finally, the last thing to note is that facial recognition is the only security option available in the menu. This would indicate that the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL do not have a fingerprint sensor.
Like Apple during the arrival of Face ID, Google would have absolute confidence in its facial recognition system. To the point of making the decision for the user to delete the fingerprint recognition.
In a further image, we can see another look at the same device information app that confirmed some details. Now the 90 Hz refresh rate is confirmed alongside with the Snapdragon 855 and 6 GB of RAM.
Let us not forget that this information remains unofficial for the moment, the translation may suffer from some shortcomings. See you on October 15th for all the details on the next Google smartphones.
