Pixel 4 is here to help

With a camera that helps you get the perfect photo every time, a new way to use your phone without touching it, and a fast and responsive display, Pixel 4 packs new technology into a striking new design. Best of all, Pixel includes the latest version of Android and Google’s best software, which gets better with each update.

Get the perfect photo with Pixel 4

Pixel 4 brings Pixel’s largest camera upgrade yet. There are now two cameras on the back of the phone, including a new telephoto lens. When you combine this new hardware feature with our Super Res Zoom software, it gives you exceptional image quality—even from a distance.

Night Sight already helps you take beautiful photos in full darkness, and now, we're turning to the stars. You can use Night Sight for shots of the night sky, the stars, and even the Milky Way when you find a clear night.

Pixel has delivered outstanding photo quality ever since we introduced always-on HDR+ (High Dynamic Range) in the original Pixel. With Pixel 4, you can fine-tune the brightness and amount of detail in the shadows, helping you balance difficult shots like sunrise portraits. Pixel 4 also brings Live HDR+ in the viewfinder so you know exactly what your photo will look like, even when you're using the new controls in tricky lighting.

A phone that senses what you want it to do 

Pixel 4’s Motion Sense* feature uses a miniature radar sensor to understand what’s happening around your phone. It can sense when you’re reaching for the phone and will initiate face unlock, or turn off your screen when you’re not around. New Quick Gestures let you skip your music when you’re doing something else: cooking, running on the treadmill or even when you’re in another app or if your display is off. Just wave your hand to snooze alarms, dismiss timers, or silence your phone. Motion Sense will be available in Australia when Pixel 4 hits the shelves.*

Built for performance and security

With 6GB RAM, a 90hz display,** and Pixel Neural Core, Pixel 4 is fast and powerful. Pixel Neural Core is the engine for on device processing, always-on computing, and machine learning, meaning more tasks are done on the device for performance and privacy.

Pixel 4 also includes Google’s custom-built Titan M security chip*** to help protect your most sensitive data and ensure the integrity of the operating system. Combined with the latest version of Android 10, monthly security updates, and access to Google’s advanced security services, Pixel 4 was designed to keep your data secure.

New built-in apps

Pixel’s new Recorder app brings the power of search and AI to audio recording. When you open the Recorder app and start a recording, you can keep track of meetings, lectures, jam sessions — anything you want to save and listen to later — and the app simultaneously transcribes speech and tags sounds like music, applause, and more. Then, you can search your recordings to quickly find the part you’re looking for. All Recorder functionality happens on-device, so your audio never leaves your phone. We're starting with English for transcription and search, and we'll be rolling out to more languages soon.

A new Google Assistant is on the way

Thanks to a deeper integration into Pixel 4, we’re making improvements to the Google Assistant to bring you a faster way to get more things done. The new Google Assistant will launch in Australia on Pixel 4 in summer via a software update to your phone. By asking the Assistant, you’ll be able to multitask across other app, search your phone, and more. Stay tuned to hear when the new Google Assistant is live in Australia!
