Google Pixel 4 camera samples show off great selfies, portraits, and... the Milky Way
Google is all set to unveil the Pixel 4 at the Made by Google event in New York on October 15, but the smartphone isn't exactly a mystery at this point thanks to a plethora of leaks we've been seeing. The Pixel lineup has always excelled in photography and the Pixel 4 seems to keep up the tradition, if the leaked camera samples are anything to go by.
From what we know so far, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will have a dual-rear camera setup with 12 MP primary and 16 MP telephoto lenses. Several official camera samples from the Pixel 4 taken using different camera settings were obtained by 9to5Google. We get to see impressive selfie shots taken at 4.5 MP that show great detail, adequate sharpness, and excellent colors. Portrait shots look great as well with strong bokeh effects that preserve details around the edges.
While night shots have always been the Pixel's forte, this time we also get to see the results of the new 'Astrophotography Mode'. Photos of the Milky Way taken with the Pixel 4 look stunning for something shot with a smartphone. According to the EXIF data, the photos seem to have been taken at California's Pinnacles National Park with an f/1.7 aperture at 12.2 MP and a 16-second exposure.
At this point, it is not clear if it is a single 16-second exposure shot or 16 one second exposure shots merged together and whether a tripod was used or not. That being said, if taking space shots is indeed as simple as is shown in the leaked promo video below, the Pixel 4 can probably be credited with taking mobile photography several notches higher. We'll have to wait till October 15 to see what pro photographers make out of the Pixel 4's camera prowess.
