Google is having a hard time keeping the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL under wraps as more and more leaks of the phones are popping up every other day. This situation is somewhat similar to last year’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that leaked out entirely before the official launch. The Google Pixel 4 devices have leaked to the extent that a publication has managed to do a hands-on article about it. This latest hands-on of the Pixel 4 XL gives us a look at the updated Google Assistant, new Face Unlock feature, and more.

NextRift has managed to get their hands on a prototype of the Google Pixel 4 XL device and published its hands-on impressions. It focuses on the updated Google Assistant giving us a clear idea of what to expect from the new smartphones. NextRift mentions that “the next generation Google Assistant is noticeably quicker at processing our requests, which makes it a lot more seamless to use“ on the Google Pixel 4 XL.

The updated Google Assistant on the Google Pixel 4 XL also seems to support Continued Conversations. The feature is currently available on Google Assistant-powered devices such as the Google Home speakers. This feature lets you have a continuous conversation with the assistant without the need to say the “Ok Google” phrase again. Google has also given the Assistant a visual makeover.

NextRift also took a look at the Face Unlock feature on the Pixel 4 XL. They mention that the Pixel 4’s face unlock technology setup process is similar to Apple’s Face ID and that “a quick glance” is enough to unlock the smartphone
