Google Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL Camera Configuration
Smartphones these days are hyper focused on camera performance, and the Pixel 4 series is no exception.
"Pixel 4 brings our largest camera upgrade yet. There are now two cameras on the back of the phone, including a new telephoto lens. When you combine this new hardware feature with our Super Res Zoom software, it gives you exceptional image quality—even from a distance," Google says.
Believe it or not, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are the first Pixel handsets to feature dual rear cameras. The primary camera consists of a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 aperture, 52-degree field of view, optical and electronic image stabilization, spectral + flicker sensor, and autofocus with phase detection.
There's also a 12.2-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f/1.7 aperture, 77-degree field of view, optical and electronic image stabilization, and autofocus with dual pixel phase detection.
Around front, there is an 8-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and 90-degree field of view.
The software is just as important as the hardware. In fact, Google referred to the Pixel 4 as a "software defined camera," noting that it's powered by a Neural Core for motion and face tracking (as well as other kinds of tracking), and to adjust the exposure, focus, and other details that are crucial to capturing the perfect snapshot.
This is where the dual exposure comes into play. Separate sliders will along a user to lighten the subject and darken the background, or vice versa, which can come in handy when taking pictures in sunlight.

Also as previously confirmed, the Pixel 4 series introduces gesture control with Motion Sense. There is actually a miniature radar sensor implanted in the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL to detect movement around your phone.
"It can sense when you’re reaching for the phone and will initiate face unlock, or turn off your screen when you’re not around. New Quick Gestures let you skip songs when you don’t want to pick up your phone. Just wave your hand to snooze alarms, dismiss timers, or silence your phone ringer. Motion Sense is enabled everywhere Pixel 4 is sold, except in Japan where it's coming soon," Google says.
In addition, Google claims deeper integration of its Assistant makes it faster and more responsive. Part of that entails "breakthroughs in speech processing" to having to send certain requests to the cloud.
Finally, Google expanded its partner lineup to include AT&T, C Spire, Cellcom, Google Fi, Spectrum Mobile (Charter), Charter, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, Visible, and Xfinity Mobile (Comcast). You can preorder the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL now in Clearly White, Just Black, and a limited edition Oh So Orange. The phones ship on October 24.
