After confirming the Pixel 4 and its multiple rear cameras last month, Google is back to tease some more features of its upcoming flagship smartphone.
In a new teaser video, Google hints that the Pixel 4 will include face unlock technology. The start of the clip shows a locked Pixel 4, but when the person looks at it, the phone unlocks and is ready for use.
The video also teases Motion Sense, a new feature coming to the Pixel 4. The clip shows the person waving their hand in front of the Pixel 4's screen to change songs without actually touching the device.
"Pixel 4 is in the works - here's an early look at some new tech coming to next-generation Pixel this Fall," Google says in the description of its new video. "This tech enables two new features - Motion Sense and face unlock - helping you to get things done without having to touch it."
The Pixel 4 leaks we've seen so far show the phone without a fingerprint sensor, something that the past three Pixel phones have had, so we've thought that Google could go all-in with face unlock on the Pixel 4 and this video confirms that. The other new feature is Motion Sense, which utilizes Google's Project Soli technology. Soli uses electromagnetic waves to track your hands gestures and let you control a device without touching it, and that's exactly what Google is teasing here.
There's no word yet on when Google will officially introduce the Pixel 4. Past Pixels have all been introduced in early October, so that's one possibility for the Pixel 4. Stay tuned.
