Poor sales of the Pixel 4, news that the Pixel 5 will cancel the Motion Sense feature

Motion Sense is one of the main selling points of the Pixel 4, and its built-in Soli radar chip can detect user gestures through electromagnetic waves for air-space operation. The Project Soli project, proposed by Google’s ATAP division in 2015, has finally put it into practical use in the Pixel 4 series. But despite the features, it has been reported inmedia recently that Google will remove the feature from the Pixel 5.

As for the reason, it’s not hard to guess that motion Sense has had unasperable negative effects for the Pixel 4 series, such as more power consumption, oversized foreheads, and even non-compliance with radar regulations that make the Pixel 4 series unsold in some countries.

And Motion Sense hasn’t made the Pixel 4 competitive enough, with Google selling just 2 million Pixel 4 devices in the first two quarters, compared with 3 million in the Pixel 3 series and 3 million in the Pixel 3a, according to a report by market research. Sales are even on the decline.

It is believed that the Pixel 5 will return to the normal hole-digging or notch screen design after the cancellation of Motion Sense, and the face value will be improved a lot as a result.
