The Pixel 4 and 4 XL launched by Google last year came with the Soli Radar that enabled Motion Sense gestures. However, none of this year’s Pixels have them, suggesting that the company may have abandoned the project. That’s not the case, according to Google’s SVP of Hardware Rick Osterloh, who says Soli Radar and Motion Sense will return in the future.
In a statement to The Verge, Osterloh said Soli Radar and Motion Sense gestures will be used in the future, and they are missing from the 2020 Pixels because they were too expensive for the phones Google wanted to build.
While Osterloh confirmed the return of Soli Radar and Motion Sense, he didn’t provide any timeframe for the same or name the product that will feature these.
