Google Pixel 4 leak: astrophotography mode is coming!

Google Pixel 4 Pixel Themes

In today's set, we get a look at the camera app again, Pixel Themes in action, and how the new Face Unlock will work during setup.

The leak comes in the form of a render of the Pixel 4 which seems to come from a screen protector maker.

Google has been introducing its Pixel smartphones during the first week of October. The quality of the video isn't as good as the one before, but it features all the three different variants of the Pixel 4 XL, and even shares some early camera samples from the device.

The Google Pixel 4 will be receiving an all-new astrophotography mode, according to a newly leaked promotional video.

As if there weren't enough Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL leaks, another round of videos and written overviews has arrived following yesterday's early wave. The device's home screen is displaying the current date as October 15. Specifics of the Pixel 4 aren't confirmed as yet but leaks suggest a 12-megapixel primary sensor with PDAF and a 16-megapixel telephoto lens. As for the hardware on offer, the Pixel 4 XL will feature a 6.23-inch QHD+ panel with a 90Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3700mAh battery.

More Smooth Display Confirmation

We'll have to wait just over a month for the Pixel 4 to make its formal debut, but in the meantime, what are your thoughts on the device?

The Soli radar chip is just one part of the Pixel 4's front-facing array. After more shots of the phone's bezels were revealed Tuesday, and a promo video highlighting the phone's features was shown off on Monday, we now have further confirmation that Google's latest phone will have an improved 90Hz display as well more details on its facial recognition feature. Although very late to the game, Google's facial recognition technology is more advanced than competition. Like any other face unlock, only this should record your face with more security, or something.

Moreover, the hardware appeared to also ditch the signature two-tone design of previous Pixels in favour of a single tone and texture.

Compared to its closest Android rivals, that design is starting to look pretty dated. although it will purportedly offer more secure facial recognition that any of its rivals can now muster. That third sensor remains a mystery for the time being.
