Google Pixel 4 hands-on videos show the phone in all its glory (Update)

  • Two hands-on videos show off the Google Pixel 4.
  • The videos reveal the phone’s Ambient EQ and Smooth Display features.
  • Also shown off are the matte black border and more.

Update, September 12, 2019 (4:35AM ET): When it leaks, it pours. Yet another video showing off the Pixel 4 XL in all its glory has shown up courtesy Vietnamese YouTubers. Head on below to take yet another look at the Pixel 4’s hardware and Soli gestures.

With Google Pixel 4 leaks seemingly never-ending, today brings us more leaks on Google’s upcoming flagship. The difference is the leaks provide the clearest looks at the Pixel 4 we’ve had yet.

Starting with YouTube channel AnhEm TV, the hands-on video shows off the Pixel 4’s design. The phone features a matte black border with a white finish around back, which line up with most of what we’ve seen so far.

The video also shows off a bit of the Pixel 4’s software, with Google seemingly making some changes to the stock camera app. The camera options sit below the camera shutter, camera switch, and image buttons, with no border to separate the buttons from the viewfinder.

Continuing with software, the Pixel 4 reportedly features an “Ambient EQ” toggle. Similar to Apple’s True Tone, Ambient EQ dynamically adjusts the display based on your environment’s lighting conditions.

Finally, the video seemingly confirms the Pixel 4’s 90Hz refresh rate for the display. Interestingly, there’s a “Smooth Display” setting that lets you switch between 60Hz and 90Hz. Even though 90Hz provides a smoother experience, the higher refresh rate tends to drain the battery faster. Having the 60Hz option helps preserve battery life, though navigation won’t be as smooth.

The next hands-on video is from YouTube channel Rabbit TV. In the video, the Pixel 4 is shown off in three colors: white, black, and coral. The white and coral options have matte black borders.

The video also shows off some of the Pixel 4’s software, such as the aforementioned Smooth Display toggle. They also talk about the phone’s front sensors, which include the Soli radar, facial recognition sensors, and more.

Finally, the video mentions a Sony IMX481 telephoto sensor, Sony IMX363 standard sensor, and Sony IMX520 front-facing sensor. There’s also talk of an OVM7251 IR sensor used for the Pixel 4’s Face Unlock feature.

Yet another hands-on video by YouTuber Duy Thẩm shows off a few more angles for the Google Pixel 4. The video doesn’t add much more information, but if you’ve been itching for a closer look at the camera module and general hardware, this one might be well worth a look. The video briefly shows off Soli based gestures for flipping the camera to portrait mode as well.
