The smartphone came with a proprietary Soli Radar Chip boasting Motion Sense features.

As spotted by PhoneArena, 9to5Google’s Stephen Hall has tweeted that the Pixel 5 might not include the Soli Radar chip this year.

The Soli Radar Chip works in conjunction with Google’s software and helps trigger Always-on display, improve face unlocking speeds and more.

Additionally, Google had to skip some other features like the ultra-wide lens in camera, a bigger battery in the Pixel 4 series because of this expensive chip.

In addition to this, the Soli Radar chip also made Google skip the sale of Pixel 4 series in a few countries including India as the device did not meet the frequency regulations, and this affected the sales further.
