Recently, the videos and images of unannounced Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL surfaced. Apparently, it is possible to trace these leaks to a retailer in Vietnam; Through the same process, a web developer and designer on Twitter named Hani Mohamed Bioud (@ HANI_4k) shared with the XDA the APK for the Google Camera 7.0 app that apparently will be preloaded on the Pixel 4 line. An APK or package of the Android app is the file format used to distribute and install apps on Android phones. The APK for the next version of the Google Camera app was taken from one of the pre-released Pixel 4 models that were mobile.
Some of the changes made to the app are cosmetic, while there are some new options for the upcoming Pixel models. For example, Night Sight will have a new infinity approach option, most likely related to the astrophotography feature that appears in a leaked promotional video for Pixel 4 that has already been removed. Night Sight allows users to take visible photos in low light conditions and astrophotography refers to the practice of taking pictures of the stars in the sky (as opposed to the stars that appear on television screens and films). Night Sight continues to offer focus adjustments for Near (about 4 feet away) and Far (about 12 feet).
Videos can be recorded by long-pressing the shutter button
A change in the zoom slider, which appeared in a photo we showed you last week, shows you the precise zoom level as you move the slider. Both the zoom slider and exposure slider are more fluid to use, although the exposure slider no longer shows the level. The top bar of the camera app, which had icons for the timer, motion settings, and flash options, no longer exists. It has been replaced with a box that appears in the center of the viewfinder when you touch the drop-down menu arrow or slide down on the viewfinder. To give users more space to view the viewfinder, the lower part of the camera app’s user interface now floats at the top of the viewfinder when taking 16: 9 images.
With Google Camera 7.0, users can quickly record a video by long-pressing the shutter button; Recording continues until the button is “released”. To help those who use the Time Lapse feature to decide which speed setting to use, new configuration tips have been added. For example, it is said that .5x is “good for lively groups”, 10x as “good for walking”, 30x as “good for busy spots” and 120x as “good for sunsets”. Now, photo suggestions based on the scene filmed with the “Camera Coaching” feature are offered. This includes tips for using Night View in dark environments and “try Portrait mode” when a face is detected in the viewfinder.
The Pixel 4 XL will be supplied with a 12.2 MP Sony IMX363 sensor with an aperture of f / 1.7 and a 16 MP Sony IMX481 sensor with a telephoto lens. There is a third camera that could a spectral sensor or is a depth sensor. The latter can capture some things that the human eye cannot see, such as X-rays, infrared rays and ultraviolet rays. The Pixel 4 may not include the spectral sensor. If this is true, the new pixels will be an ultra-wide-angle camera. The front camera for selfies on both models weighs 8 MP and could be a wide-angle camera.
The Pixel 4 line should be presented during the next Made by Google event which should take place on October 15th. As for the older pixels, the new version of the Google Camera app could be implemented next month.
