After a hefty amount of leaks, Google has finally unveiled the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

The specs list was pretty spot on with the Pixel 4 featuring a 5.7-inch Full HD+ OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate and a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ 90Hz OLED panel on the Pixel 4 XL. On the bigger top bezel of the phone, yes bezel, not notch, is its 8MP wide-angle front camera and a variety of sensors that includes a radar.

The radar is a first in the realm of smartphones and this plays into the Motion Sense feature of the phone. Motion Sense is able to tell if you’re about to pick up your phone and prepare the camera which helps deliver a faster face unlock experience. It also turns off the Always On Display when you’re away from your phone to help save battery. In addition, Motion Sense also allows gestures to do things like silence a call, shut an alarm, or switch to the next song.

The company also announced a dual rear camera setup on both the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL. This comprises of a 16MP main camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 12MP telephoto lens with f/1.7. They featured the prowess of the rear camera which includes HDR+, improved Portrait Mode, Night Sight, and Astro Photography.
