New Pixel 4 leak shows off Face Unlock, 90Hz display

The Announcement of Smartphones Google Pixel 4 May Be on October 15

The 2019 Pixel smartphones have leaked so much in the past week that we've grown exhausted of looking over every leak because they're all starting to blend together. Sounds like the Pixel 4 won't fall short where the Pixel 3 range did.

As Pro Android points out, Google isn't first to market with such an idea. The video from AnhEm TV is in Vietnamese but the Pixel 4 XL's software is in English, so we can see features like Smooth Display that "dynamically adjusts the refresh rate between 60 and 90Hz".

The videos confirm the 90Hz Smooth Display, with an assorted option in Display settings. This model is yet to appear in a hands-on video (via Slashleaks) but the Pixel 4 XL has just appeared in another one that lists all of the internal specs.

It's not surprising to see the Pixel 4 leaking out pretty continuously like this. Right now, it's due to be announced on October 15.

Thanks to the video, we now know that the Pixel 4 will come with a Sony IMX481 telephoto lens, a Sony IMX363 standard lens, and a Sony IMX520 for the front-facing camera.

Possibly the most interesting feature on the Pixel 4 series are air gestures.

The other details shown - particularly in the last image - refer to a phone with 6GB of RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. This enables users to swipe screens, skip songs, snooze alarms and more by just waving their hand. Although very late to the game, Google's facial recognition technology is more advanced than competition. Google Pixel 4 will automatically recognize the user when they hold the phone.

In these photos, the page dedicated to facial recognition indicates that the latter can work even with glasses, or with "light" sunglasses. Google ensures privacy on its Pixel 4 phones by storing your photo on Titan M security chip.

Compared to its closest Android rivals, that design is starting to look pretty dated. although it will purportedly offer more secure facial recognition that any of its rivals can now muster.

Moreover, the hardware appeared to also ditch the signature two-tone design of previous Pixels in favour of a single tone and texture. One disappointing factor could be the presence of bezels on the Pixel 4. That third sensor remains a mystery for the time being.
