Google Pixel 5 was officially revealed and many fans were sad to learn that Google did not implement two relevant technologies that were presented from Pixel 4.
We talk about Soli Radar and Motion Sense. Although Motion Sense is not exactly new (we’ve already seen it on the Galaxy S4), Soli Radar was promising. By eliminating Pixel 5 technology, many believed that the “Google graveyard” would have two new technologies
What is Google’s Motion Sense
Motion Sense is a basic technology that takes advantage of the front camera and sensors to understand if you are making movements in front of the smartphone. For example, you run your hand over your smartphone and change music.
What is Google’s Soli Project
More complex gestures. That is, not only will you be able to move your hand forward or backward to change the song, but you will also be able to “rub” two fingers to give a command to the smartphone. This Soli Project already needs more capable sensors and much more worked software.
Soli Project and Motion Sense will return in the future
In an interview with The Verge, the director of Google’s Hardware segment, Rick Osterloh, said that the technologies were not eliminated from the Google Pixel 5 by chance.
However, its implementation would make the value of the Google Pixel 5 soar and that would not be the goal. As such, Google will continue to work to improve and lower the price of this technology.
