Google's Pixel 5 may ditch Project Soli and Motion Sense

With the Pixel 4, Google brought a new feature -- Motion Sense -- to the Pixel line.

Powered by the innovative Project Soli, Motion Sense added a layer of mystique to the Pixel 4.

With the Pixel 5, Google seems set to drop that feature, according to the folks over at 9to5Google (via The Next Web.)

There isn't any compelling reason to use the feature, and that makes it all the more frustrating because it was due to Motion Sense that Google didn't launch the Pixel 4 in India.

A focus on esoteric software features, shipping phones with underpowered specs, and building awkward designs have led to the Pixel line underperforming in the market.
