Google Pixel 4 Camera Sample Reveals Extraordinary Zoom Capabilities
American technology giant Google is expected to launch two new smartphones in its Pixel lineup later this year. Dubbed the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, these devices will be the successor to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL from last year. While there is still some time for the handsets launch, the company has already revealed the design and key features of the Pixel 4 series through a series of tweets and blog posts. Now in a new reveal, first camera samples from the upcoming flagship smartphone have allegedly been showcased on photo-sharing website Instagram. The image shared reveals that the handsets may sport extraordinary zoom capabilities.
The reports reveal that the Director of Design at Google, Claude Zellweger posted an image on his Instagram page which was clicked inside the company’s Design Studio. On being complemented by another Google executive, he revealed that the image has been shot at 20x zoom mode from a Pixel smartphone. Judging from the details and the quality of the image, it was deduced that it is not taken from an existing Pixel device, as they lack the hardware and software prowess to do so. Hence it is expected that the picture was clicked by the upcoming Pixel 4. It was revealed in the past that the upcoming Google flagship may sport a secondary telephoto lens. It is thus possible that the image is taken from the said lens, further enhanced using the company’s software magic.
The Pixel 4 series by Google will be one of its most significant upgrades yet. The company has already confirmed how the back of the smartphones will look. It is also certain that the devices will be equipped with a Soli radar chip and advanced facial recognition; all of which will be fitted inside a thick forehead bezel. While the rest of the specifications are anyone’s guess, it is expected that the handsets will run on the Snapdragon 855 SoC, combined with up to 6GB of RAM. While not confirmed, it has been leaked that the devices may feature a high refresh rate display, similar to the one found on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Like all its predecessors, the Pixel 4 lineup may be introduced in the month of October, wherein all our pending questions will be answered.
