Google launched the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL smartphones with a Soli radar chip to offer hands-free usage abilities. However, the feature hasn’t gained much attention, which results in low sales of the Pixel 4 devices.

Pixel 5 series to ditch Motion Sense and Soli

Among the factors for the low sales of Google Pixel 4 series, apart from the older design and not-so-important premium functions, could be the absence of availability in some regions. Soli radar uses frequency range, and for that, the company needs to obtain permission for the usage, where the company plans to sell the devices. The Pixel 4 series didn’t make its way to countries like India, Japan, China, and more.

In terms of internals, the Pixel 5 series may come with Snapdragon 765G chipset to target the mid-range device market ad snapdragon 865 will make the device quite expensive.

Without Motion Sense, the company may offer a full-screen experience. There will be a rear triple-camera setup, including a Wide-angle sensor as per the rumors.

In the coming weeks, we expect more information to be surfaced online. So, stay tuned for the updates.
