Motion Sense will apparently continue to evolve with "these capabilities just the start". In the case of Soli specifically, it builds on radar, packaging it into a form-factor small enough to fit into a phone or even a wearable. And with the presence of multiple rear cameras, Motion Sense, and Face Unlock already confirmed for the Pixel 4, Google's next phone is shaping up to easily be the most interesting handset the company has ever made. These gestures appear to let you control the Pixel 4 without touching it.
Google says the company will share more details about the Pixel 4 later this year, though it's likely it will share some more official details if there are more leaks in the near future. The images used for face unlock are never saved or shared with other Google services.
For the Pixel 4, Soli will be responsible for Motion Sense.
The downside will be that if the Pixel's face unlock isn't as fast or as secure as the iPhone's, that's going to be problematic.
Pixel 4 is shown carrying not one but two face-unlock IR cameras. From there, she steps back and proceeds to skip through songs by moving her hand before the Pixel 4 screen without ever actually touching it. Google also shared a blog post explaining the motion sensor and face unlock feature along with an image showing all the components on the top bezel of the Pixel 4.

The Mountain View-based tech giant has been working for some time on Project Soli, which is a chip that uses radar to detect hand gestures near the phone, quite like the hand gestures seen on the LG G8 ThinQ.
Other phones require you to lift the device all the way up, pose in a certain way, wait for it to unlock, and then swipe to get to the homescreen.
Though there is a trade-off because those cameras do take up a fair bit of space, which gives the Pixel 4 the appearance of having a rather sizable forehead. Much like the iPhone's notch, it seems Google is packing a ton of hardware up there, so at least there's a practical excuse for the look.
Google says the face unlock will work in nearly any orientation - even if you're holding it upside down.
Google is expected to announce and release the Pixel 4 in October, the same month the company has historically announced and released previous Pixel smartphones. Google also acknowledged collecting location info at first, but said the data wasn't necessary and would delete it.
