Google took the covers off its long-hyped Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL overnight. The new Pixel 4 range is packed with incredible features that will change the way you use a phone – the Google way – all wrapped up in an awesome new design.
Google wants the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL to unify all the incredible technology and software it has to offer in a single device. From an incredible camera system, motion control capabilities and a host of new features, the Pixel 4 range is designed to make your life smarter and easier all at once.
With Motion Sense, you’ll be able to skip songs, snooze alarms and silence calls just by waving your hand over the device.
This innovative new way to use your phone without touching your device allows you to interact without your hands, which is great if your hands are messy!
Pixel-perfect photos, every time
The Google Pixel range is renowned for incredible cameras, and the Pixel 4 range continues to improve on its performance in any lighting condition.
Both devices boast a 12.2-megapixel 77-degree wide lens and a 16-megapixel 52-degree dual camera on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel wide selfie camera on the front.
The cameras on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL allow you to capture rich detail and colour and even the night sky in all its splendour with improved Night Sight.
That additional lens also makes Portrait Mode even better on the new Pixel 4 range, and Super Res Zoom allows you to snap all the details, even at a distance.
Google smarts also works to make the camera experience even richer, with Frequent Faces learning the people you photograph most and capturing photos of them when they look their best.
And the rest
Google has brought together all of its best features into the one device with the new Pixel 4 range, including the helpful Google Assistant. It’s the easiest way to get things done on your device: simply squeeze the phone to get started or say “Hey Google”.
The Pixel 4 range also allows you to navigate smarter than ever with augmented reality Google Maps that places arrows and directions right on your world, so there’s never any second guessing or missing a turn.
