As a company with strong technical strength, Google's black technology in the Pixel series is very much looking forward to.

Text: I/O

Since 2016, Google has released the latest Pixel smartphone models in October each year, and has launched three generations of products so far; in no case, the Pixel 4 series will be released in October this year. However, similar to the situation in previous years, before the official release, the rumors about the new generation of Pixel mobile phones are all overwhelming and highly credible.

At this time, Google officially couldn't sit still and published the Pixel 4 real machine map directly on Twitter.

Pixel 4 may hit the face of a new generation of iPhone

At 2:30 in the morning of June 13th, Beijing time, Google’s official Twitter account “Made By Google” posted a picture with a Pixel 4 label and said that since everyone cares, it’s not hidden. It is. So no doubt, the look of the next generation Pixel 4 is like this:


From the picture point of view, Pixel 4 has at least one black version, the color integration is stronger, and no longer use the previous near-color matching design, it looks more advanced, the four sides are bright, better.

Of course, the most eye-catching picture in the picture is a square raised camera module on the back. Look carefully at the dual camera design (left and right distribution), there is a flash at the bottom of the module, and a small dot can be seen at the top, which may be a microphone; The camera also has a Google logo on the back, but the three generations of fingerprint recognition modules have disappeared, which means that Pixel 4 may use off-screen fingerprint recognition.

In addition, you can also see a white button on the Pixel black body, which is consistent with Pixel's consistent aesthetic style, and it seems to have a contrasting contrast.

Interestingly, the official leak map is to place two phones in parallel, presenting different parts of the back; and a Twitter user nicknamed Fetty Wok has a whimsy, putting the two together, P becomes A Pixel 4 real machine back image, the effect can be said to be very realistic:


The Pixel 4's back camera design is reminiscent of Huawei's rear-mounted Yuba lens design on the Mate 20 Pro last year. Of course, the Mate 20 uses a three-camera design.

More coincidentally, however, Pixel 4 may face the latter camera design of the new iPhone.

According to the prediction of well-known Apple analyst Guo Minghao, this year's upgraded version of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will use the rear three camera design; compared with the current version, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera is added, which is exclusively provided by Sony. In addition, in order to make these two iPhone lenses less conspicuous, Apple added a dark coating to the lenses of the two phones.

From the picture of the new iPhone given by OnLeaks, the camera part is also a bit like “Yuba”; compared with Pixel 4, it can be said that it has the same effect.


But Pixel 4's black technology is more exciting

In addition to the officially released back real machine map, it is also necessary to pay attention to other information that Pixel 4 has been exposed to.

For example, in this official map, the back information of Pixel 4 is actually no doubt, but the positive information is not yet known. However, on June 10th, Pricebaba and Onleaks teamed up to release a front and back view of a set of Pixel 4s, which can be vaguely seen on its front top microphone. Another one who broke the news —— Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy believes that the front of Pixel 4 will no longer have bangs, but will have big black edges, there will be five different images in the big black side Processing system.

However, one rumor is that Google will add Soli radar chips to Pixel 4 based on rumors heard by the well-known Google News blog 9to5Google.


Speaking of the Soli radar sensor chip, you have to mention Google's Project Soli, which was proposed by Google's mysterious ATAP division (Advanced Technologies and Projects) in 2015 to use the use of micro-radars (also known as Soli sensors) to monitor aerial gestures. New sensing technology. The technology is designed to design a non-touch user interface that allows users to control electronic devices via WeChat radar. For example, the Soli micro-radar is placed in a smart watch, and the user can perform various operations such as volume and channel through gestures.


Lei Feng Network understands that the Soli sensor is a highly integrated low power radar operating in the 60 GHz ISM band. According to official Google information, Soli sensors have rapidly iterated multiple hardware prototypes from a hardware prototype. After redesigning, Google rebuilt it into a solid-state component that can be easily integrated into small mobile consumer devices. Medium and large-scale production.

Google also customized two chips for Soli sensors, which were developed using two different modulation architectures: Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) radar. Both chips integrate the entire radar system into the package, including multiple beamforming antennas for 3D tracking and imaging. Currently, the Google Soli chip has been able to integrate the entire sensor and antenna array into an 8mm x 10mm package.

However, there is no exact news about whether Google will integrate Soli sensors in Pixel 4 and what the integration will do.

It's worth mentioning that XDA Developers found that there is a Pixel-only feature in the Beta version of Android Q, called aware Sensor; and Google has set up a lot of operations for this feature, such as Skip and Slience. .

In addition to the possible Soli sensors, Pixel 4 is also attracting attention to two other emerging black technology chips, Pixel Visual Core and Titan M.


For example, Google first built an auxiliary AI-specific chip —— Pixel Visual Core in Pixel 2 released in 2017, but last year's Pixel 3 was optimized and not updated, this year it is possible to launch it. A new version to promote the Pixel family's image processing and AI capabilities.

In addition, in last year's Pixel 3, Google introduced the Titan M custom security chip, I don't know if this chip will be updated this year.


Lei Feng network summary

There is no doubt that Pixel 4 will be Google's latest generation flagship machine, so there is basically no doubt that the Snapdragon 855 processor, camera capabilities, AI features, etc. will become the regular upgrade configuration of Google Pixel 4, so instead So eye-catching. However, in Lei Feng's view, as a company with strong technical strength, Google's black technology in the Pixel series is very much looking forward to.

However, under the blessing of BlackTech, the price of Google Pixel 4 is estimated to be a new generation of iPhone, and there will even be a tendency to cross. I don’t know how many people will be willing to pay.
