Another Pixel 4 hands-on gives us a glimpse of face unlock and new camera settings

Every day this week has brought a new Pixel 4 leak. Two long video reviews of the device surfaced yesterday in Vietnam, and now we have another photo-based look at the device from the same country. Turns out a retailer in Hanoi is selling nearly-finished samples for 25M VND ($1,079) — they could be coming off the new production line or from another source. With that clarification out of the way, let's take a look at what we can glean from this latest leak, courtesy of Genk.vn.

These dudes already have the Pixel 4 — here are the video reviews

Google took the unusual step of confirming the existence of its upcoming Pixel phone this year, but we don't expect the full Pixel 4 unveiling for another month. That hasn't stopped some people in Southeast Asia from getting their hands on the phone. We have no idea what they're saying, but you get a good look at the phone in these videos.

Google Pixel 4 looks set to be announced October 15 as Motion Sense settings leak

Pixel 4 leaks just won't stop. Over the last couple of days, we've seen a multitude of photos and videos showing the phone in the wild, giving us a good idea of what it looks like and which hardware is built in. Another leak courtesy of YouTuber Brandon Lee offers us a glimpse at some hands-free gestures coming to the Pixel 4 thanks to radar-based Soli technology. Following him, Evleaks published a high-quality render of the phone's front with an October 15 date on it, suggesting it might launch that day.

On iPhone day, Google's big Pixel phone problem looms large

Today, Apple will announce some new iPhones. Before the year is through, it will sell tens of millions of these phones worldwide, with each sale averaging a price any other smartphone maker could only dream of. Around a month from now, Google will offer its retort, in the form of the Pixel 4. The Pixel 4 will not be the source of any grand claims about sales figures, because Google will probably be lucky to even crack a million units before 2019 ends, if the Pixel 3's struggles are any sort of evidence.

After three years and soon four generations of Pixel smartphones, Google has failed to generate meaningful marketplace traction for its in-house smartphone brand.

More Pixel 4 images leak as ‘Coral’ model is caught on video

As we edge ever closer to the official announcement of the Pixel 4, more and more leaks are emerging to show us what the phone will look like, including an unexpected but beautiful 'Coral' version. With this phone, Google has even taken the unusual decision to share renders and information about the device's radar technology as part of intentionally released marketing. Along with a video of the 'Coral' version, another round of images have appeared on Reddit today, and they're the highest quality ones we've seen so far.

Leaked Pixel 4 TV commercial showcases its gesture controls and camera with the most Googley marketing

We're likely around a month away from the launch of Google's next flagship phone and the leaks are starting to heat up. Even with Google divulging plenty of information — and sharing an official teaser image months before release — the leaks haven't quite matched last year's Pixel 3 debacle, but we probably still know pretty much all there is to know about the Pixel 4 by now.

Google Assistant on the Pixel 4 might save you from listening to call hold music

Having to be put on hold while calling a business is annoying, and having to listen to barely-recognizable music for an extended period of time while you wait a human to become available only makes it worse. Google already teased that a next-generation Assistant would be coming to future Pixel devices, and now we know one more trick it might have taking over call holds.

Pixel 4 leaks bring fresh pics, new camera details: up to 8x zoom, new 'Motion Mode' for action shots, and improved Night Sight

There's no stopping the Pixel 4 leaks as we get closer to the phone's anticipated launch. The latest details, spotted by the folks at XDA Developers, show off a Pixel 4 with an "8x" element on the camera's UI — presumably indicating the telephoto lens might be able to reach up to an 8x zoom level compared to the primary camera (though we don't know how much of that could be digital zoom). 9to5Google is also reporting a new "Motion Mode" for capturing fast-paced action, and even better low-light performance via a souped-up Night Sight. Previous rumors that the phone would pack an "upgrade" to 6GB of RAM were also corroborated, and we get to see a new white color.

[Update: In white] Short Pixel 4 hands-on video gives us our first real look at the phone

The Pixel 4 is barely a mystery at this point, with renders having already surfaced, Google's own confirmation of the phone's face unlock and Motion Sense tech, live FCC listings, and plenty of other leaked details. What we haven't seen though, so far, are proper hands-on photos and videos. This is our first look at the real device.

Pixel 4 landing page reveals geographical restrictions for Motion Sense gesture controls

Google has telegraphed far in advance of the Pixel 4's launch that it will come with a featured called Motion Sense — a radar technique developed under the name Project Soli using high-frequency radios to detect in-air gestures for user interfaces. But if you live in one country, you shouldn't expect to take advantage of this feature.
