I ran past the iPhone 11

Outwardly, the two “pixels” presented are veryreminiscent of Apple’s flagships, with the only difference that the back side looks less ̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶ brutal. By the way, for the first time on Google smartphones, a triple main camera is used. It is located in a square module, which consists of a main 12 MP (Dual-Pixel) image sensor, an auxiliary 16 MP telephoto sensor with optical and digital stabilization, as well as depth senator. The camera supports double optical zoom, shooting video in 4K at a speed of 30 fps and slow motion as 1080p and at a speed of 120 fps. Front camera resolution - 8 megapixels.

New items are equipped with a neural processor Pixel Neural Core, which helps the camera to process HDR + in real time.

Screen and Features

Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL both gotOLED panels with a frequency of 90 Hz and an aspect ratio of 19: 9, however, their sizes and quality vary. A 5.7-inch matrix with Full HD + resolution (1920 x 1080) was installed in the base model, the older one received a 6.3-inch screen with a resolution of 3040 x 1440.

It is noteworthy that both smartphones havethe characteristic frame of the case, especially noticeable in the upper part of the display. This is where the Google Soli chip is installed, which allows you to control the device using gestures. The user will be able to wave music to switch music, change the volume and more. Most likely, in the future the functionality of this chip will expand even more. Also in this “bang” is a speaker and a face recognition sensor.

Also, from pleasant trifles it is worth noting protection against water and dust at the IP68 level, NFC-module, Titan M security module and support for Pixel Stand wireless charging.
