Google Camera has just been updated to version 7.3.017 on the Play Store. A new report allegedly based on a teardown of its APK specifies the ability to record at 24 frames per second (fps). This option may pertain to upcoming phones such as the Pixel 4a series, which may also have cropped up in this code.

The XDA contributor Mishaal Rahman claims to have obtained and torn down the most up-to-date version of the Google Camera app (7.3.017). He asserts that strings referring to a new video-recording option have been added to this software. They would apparently allow compatible hardware to do so at 24 fps, whereas 30 fps is the best that can be done today (on Android).

Therefore, it is possible that some 2020 phones could support this state-of-the-art feature. The new Google Camera APK analysis has also reportedly resulted in the possible confirmation of the Pixel 4a series' code-names. Earlier leaks had suggested that the names "sunfish", redfin", and "bramble" were associated with these phones.

The same monikers have allegedly appeared in the updated camera-app code from Mountain View, in conjunction with strings that start, "pixel_20_mid_range". This seems to suggest that they refer to the Pixel 3a and 3a XL's successors, some of which are thought to run on the Snapdragon 765 SoC.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
