Google Pixel 4 there is one thing Google Pixel phones are really good at, it’s the camera quality. Even with a single camera, Pixel 3 is arguably the best camera phone around. And the same tradition is going to continue with the Pixel 4 as well.
First up, 9to5Google is reporting that the Pixel 4 will have a motion mode. It allows users to take high-quality action images with moving subjects in the foreground and blurry backgrounds like you can take with expensive cameras.
It’s a really cool feature and I guess it would be the top headline camera features of the Pixel 4.
Next up is the night sight, Pixel 4 is getting an improved night sight feature, It will be getting some speed-related and other general improvements, also now you can take better photos of the starry sky. The night sight was already good on the Pixel 3 and now it’s getting even better on the Pixel 4.
Next one is interesting, the Pixel 4 will have 8x zoom. As you can see in this leaked image of the Pixel 4, it shows 8x zoom.
Now we don’t know whether it’s optical zoom or digital zoom, reports are saying Google will go for a combination of 5x optical zoom and their own Super Res Zoom to produce sharper images at higher magnifications.
XDA Developers is also reporting that the Pixel 4 will have Audio zoom, a feature similar to the Zoom in mic that you find on the Galaxy Note 10 which uses the microphones to adjust the audio focus when you zoom out or in.
Pixel 4 will also have Live HDR and Better Wide-Angle Selfies. So all in all, Google isn’t just adding another camera to the phone, it’s getting tons of new software improvements as well which should make the Pixel 4, the camera phone of the year 2019 as well.
90Hz refresh rate display
It’s basically confirmed at this point. The Pixel 4 will have a display with a 90Hz refresh rate. XDA has dug into the Android 10 source code which mentions 90Hz for P19 devices which is obviously for Pixel 2019 devices.
One great thing, though is that Pixel4 will have smart refresh rate which means if you are playing a video that isn’t meant for 90Hz, the display will switch back to 60Hz so that the battery doesn’t get drained unnecessarily.
Pretty neat, OnePlus should have done this instead on the OnePlus 7 Pro. That device has a fixed 90Hz display which drains the battery even when you’re not watching a 90Hz content.
Also, another leaked image confirms that Google is finally going up in the RAM count. The Pixel 4 will have 6GB RAM compared to last year’s 4GB.
It’s still way too less compared to Note 10+’s 12GB RAM but hey an improvement nonetheless.
Google assistant on the pixel 4
Remember the Google Duplex that was showcased in 2018, it raised the bar when we saw the demonstration on stage, but turns out, not a lot of people actually use it in real life.
But that didn’t stop Google from working on new ideas. According to 9to5Google, Google is giving more control to the Google Assistant this year.
Suppose you’re on a business call and that person puts you on hold. When that happens you hear that annoying music of the respective businesses.
With the Pixel 4 now you can tell the Google assistant that you’re on hold by tapping a button on the display. And then you can turn your attention away from the call and the Google Assistant will let you know when there’s an actual human back on the other end of the call.
Pretty cool, let’s see how many people are going to use this feature in real life.
