Google Pixel 4 – Cameras

For the first time in the history of the Pixel series of phones, the Pixel 4 will feature multiple rear-facing cameras. Among these, we’ve confirmed that there will be a 12MP main sensor along with a 16MP telephoto camera. This telephoto lens, combined with the Google Camera app’s excellent Super Res Zoom feature that first premiered on the Pixel 3, should make for exceptional long-distance photos on the Pixel 4.

On the software side of things, we’ve learned that Google has planned at least two major camera updates for the Google Pixel 4. The first of these is the inclusion of a new “Motion Mode” intended for taking DSLR-like photos with motion blur. We’re not yet sure if this is the same as the “McFly Mode” we’ve been tracking in the Google Camera app. The other planned improvement to the Pixel 4 camera is a massive upgrade to Night Sight to make it ready for astrophotography.

Google Pixel 4 – Release Date

The Pixel 4 has not yet been given a proper release date, but a leaked Verizon timeline points to an October release, just like most Pixel flagships. The company likely won’t share an official release date for the Pixel 4 until their fall hardware event.

Invitations to the Made by Google 2019 hardware event have gone out, and we now know that the event will take place on October 15th.

Google Store pricing error marks down Pixel 4 to ‘Free’

The Google Store has had its share of mix-ups in the past from incorrect product listings to major accidental reveals. Today, the Made by Google site is erroneously listing the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL as being “Free.”

Google’s Pixel 4 series hasn’t exactly been the most successful offering the company has had so far, but it’s still available from all major carriers and online stores too. Now, though, the Pixel 4 XL has weirdly disappeared from T-Mobile’s online store.
