Google camera app reveals the purpose of Pixel 4’s second lens

Google's Giving More Prominence to Pixel's Night Sight Camera Feature

Depending on what you value in a phone camera, this could come as a disappointment, but at least you'll be able to get some better zoomed-in shots.

An unreleased build of the Google Camera app's next version has leaked online and it will reportedly be bringing in a few UI changes.

Google has relied heavily on its camera software to make-up for the PIxel phones' single lens setup, at a time when rival devices are boasting dual and triple-camera units. Now, the latest discovery in the Google Camera app hints at the possibility of Pixel 4 having a rear telephoto lens. But it has not yet revealed about the details of its second camera that it will be a telephoto shooter or it will be optimized for super-wide angle photos. Though the comparability shouldn't be exclusively truthful, a model-new unlocked 64GB phone with a 6.three-inch notched OLED panel, Snapdragon 845 SoC, and three, 430mAh battery usually prices $899 at Google and approved third-social gathering retailers nationwide.

This might not sound like a drastic change, but putting one of the signature Pixel features front and center rather than forcing users to tap extra buttons to find it is a smart move. They found references to "telephoto" within this portion of the code. According to Google Camera v6.3, obtained from a leaked Q Beta 5 build (and available for download here), this secondary camera might be of the telephoto variety. They also further uncovered a list of camera sensors the Google Camera app can choose from. The new camera app also comes with improvement for the Portrait mode's front-facing Flash feature, which has now been renamed to Illumination.
