There are three colours on offer: Clearly White, Just Black and the new Oh So Orange. Google has been following the quirky naming convention since the first-generation Pixel came out and appears to be a running gag for a while now. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are the first models to sport a black frame for the edges across all the available shades.

Long-time users of the Pixel series always relied on the fingerprint scanner to secure their smartphones. However, the function is no longer part of the package even though It was previously rumoured to have an under-display unit. In its place is Google's own face unlock technology, which reportedly uses infrared and radar alongside the front-facing camera to recognize the owner.

The company is calling the feature Motion Sense and it supposedly does more than just act as a security measure. As the name implies, it can apparently detect hand motions for various applications. For example, it can skip tracks when playing music or interact with the new live wallpapers with just a wave of the user's hands above the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.

For a while now, Google's Pixel series is known for impressive imaging. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are no different dual-cameras that can allegedly take clear photos of stars at night. The display flaunts a 90 Hz refresh rate, which makes animations and transitions appear smooth. Pricing starts at $799 (625.32 pounds) for the smaller model and $899 (703.58 pounds) for the bigger variant. Storage sizes start at 64 GB with the highest at 128 GB.
