Google Pixel 4's Cameras Might Out-Perform Those Of iPhone 11 Pro

From Google Camera 7.0 leak, we have reasons to believe that Google Pixel 4 will have lots of new features that may even beat iPhone 11 Pro from Apple

From the Google Camera 7.0 leak, we have reasons to believe that Google Pixel 4 will have lots of new features that may even beat the iPhone 11 Pro from Apple. The features we are talking about are an improved Night Sight, Live HDR, Motion Blur, Dynamic Depth Format, mesh warping (for selfie distortions), Playground AR Sticker integration, Audio Zoom, Zero Shutter Lag, Rewind Mode, Measure Mode (AR), and Google Lens abilities.

All The New Stuff From Google

All the features we have just seen came from XDA Developers’ code teardown. They have done a thorough work to find out what the Pixel 4 can and cannot do with its google camera app via the latest leaked version. This teardown has shown the following features of Google Pixel 4:

Google Pixel 4 camera features:
• Audio Zoom
• Saving depth data with Dynamic Depth Format DDF from Android 10
• HDRNet tech
• Google Lens expansion – more suggestions for potential document scanning by the app for the user
• Longer exposure times with Night Sight
• Telephoto lens support

Potential multiple-Pixel features:
• Motion Blur
• Refocus (after capture, multiple focuses captured with one snap)
• Rewind (“McFly Module”
• Measure Mode (AR measuring feature)
• Photobooth with Playground AR Stickers
• Live HDR and HDRNet
• Astrophotography (stars!)

Some new functions might come to Pixel 4 only, but the Google Camera 7.0 app will likely bring updates to the whole lineup, or for the Pixel 3 and 3Xl at least.

The Slofie

Apple introduced slofie, slo-mo videos users can create with the selfie camera

At its announcing event took place last week, Apple introduced slofie, slo-mo videos users can create with the selfie camera. Here is what Apple said:

“The new 12MP TrueDepth camera lets you take superfun slow-motion selfie videos at 120 fps, or shoot in 4K at 60 fps.”

Matching Powers

This week, Apple announced that iPhone 11 Pro would come equipped with Audio Zoom to match video framing with audio. The same feature is expected to appear on Pixel 4 too. With a triple-camera setup, users expect that iPhone 11 Pro will be able to capture wide and ultra-wide angles that are as good as the wideness we can find on Google Pixel 4. However, we may need full spec lists of the two phones to have a more concrete conclusion.

The iPhone 11 Pro is by far Apple’s phone with the most impressive low-light performance. According to Apple, the A13 Bionic processor will allow for the kind of low-light shots that have never been possible on an iPhone before.

Both the iPhone 11 Pro and Pixel 4 have had Portrait Mode before and with the latest generations, they will likely receive some upgrades.

The two devices have HDR so they are able to analyze the shot and decide which color should be highlighted and which should not. However, with this function, we may need to have these phones to test to conclude which one is better.

Apple’s “Manual Controls”

There is one thing we can be sure that Apple may do better than Google is the manual controls on the iPhone 11 lineup. Here is what Apple said:

“You can also experiment with manual controls to dial in even more detail and less noise.”

We will soon be able to draw a conclusion on which company, Apple or Google, trust their users more to allow more manual control. So stay tuned for more in-depth reviews.
