A new hands-on video from Malaysian tech store Halo Mobile has just surfaced reportedly showing Google’s Pixel 4 XL, and as you can see, the large notch from the Pixel 3 XL was replaced with a standard forehead bezel up top. This is where Pixel 4’s radar-based “Soli” sensors will be located and used for advanced facial recognition, like unlocking the device even before it’s picked up by scaning your face from various angles. Read more for the video and additional information.
Plus, the Soli sensors are also capable of detecting motion gestures, such as waving your hand to skip songs, snooze alarms, silence phone calls, etc. Sensors aside, the bottom bezel on this pre-production prototype also appears to be narrower, but still larger than the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices. No, there is no headphone jack either on this new Pixel smartphone.
