As the image shows, the face unlock feature in the phone is sitting at the top bezel in the Pixel 4 and 4 XL. The arrangement is pretty identical to Apple’s Face ID hardware.

Likewise you can see components including Face Unlock IR camera, flood illuminator, and dot projector sitting beside the face unlock.  They altogether turns Pixel 4’s Face Unlock feature faster, instant, prompt and accurate.

Motion Gestures

With Google Pixel 4, the company introduces a radar sensor called the Soli radar chip. Using the feature, you can change tracks, control playback, silent incoming calls, snooze alarms, and much more by just waving your hand over the phone.
