Google has confirmed that the Pixel 4 will have touch-free gestures

(Don’t) Hold the Phone – that’s almost witty, Google.

Hot on the heels of various Google Pixel 4 leaks, Google has decided to put some rumors about its upcoming flagships to rest. Yes, those rumors about face unlock and touch-free navigation were true.

That means that some of the sensors shown in the leaked screen protectors are powering the Project Soli close-range radar.

Google just decided to scoop itself again with some of the Pixel 4’s standout features

Ever wanted to be a Jedi? Of course you did. Now, you can control your phone with Jedi-like hand waving, at least if you buy a Google Pixel 4. Google showed off some snippets of the upcoming face unlock system as well, and it looks pretty darn seamless.

  • Project Soli, the motion-sensing radar system that lets you control your phone by waving will be included in the Pixel 4
  • Secure face unlock will be featuring on the Pixel, the first Android handset to have an answer for Apple’s Face ID
  • The combination can also unlock your phone as soon as you pick it up, no matter which orientation the phone is in

Google’s move to leak its own products is certainly a more hands-on approach to the normally hush-hush, no-comment of the mobile manufacturers. We’ll have to see if it translates into sales figures when the handset finally goes on sale.
