Google always likes to highlight the cameras on their Pixel line, and this year is no exception, since both models have a dual camera setup for the first time ever. To be more specific, they now feature a 16MP telephoto sensor and the standard 12MP main camera. There’s even a face unlock system that uses an IR grid projected onto the user’s face, in which the two cameras view in 3D to authenticate the user.

Motion Sense, a Soli-powered air gesture, function enables users to wave their hand over the device to perform actions, like skipping music tracks, silence alarms, or answer phone calls.
