Pixel 4 leaked promo confirms astrophotography mode: Here's what it does

San Francisco: The upcoming Google Pixel smartphone — the Pixel 4 would feature gestures, night time camera enhancements and an astrophotography mode, a promo video of the device confirmed.

The one-minute promo video puts particular emphasis on night time camera capabilities and also on some new Google Assistant features, allowing Pixel 4 owners to fully control Google Photos with just voice controls, The Verge reported on Monday.

In addition, the device would feature a new Motion Mode for action scenes, an enhanced Night Sight feature and would offer 8x zoom, reports suggest.

The new Motion Mode is said to allow users to capture high-quality action shots with moving subjects in the foreground and blurry backgrounds, The Verge reported on Friday.

The Night Sight feature would include speed-related enhancements, allowing the phone to take better pictures at night.

For 8x zoom, it is unclear whether the camera would feature optical zoom or a combination of both optical and digital.

Search engine giant Google is expected to refresh its Pixel series with the launch of the two smartphones late in October.

Another report hinted at the presence of a super-smooth display with 90Hz refresh rate. The Verge in August reported the Pixel 4 might be lit by a 5.7-inch Full HD display while the larger Pixel 4XL would boast a 6.3-inch Quad HD panel.

Other reports also suggest that the phone would either have an in-display fingerprint sensor or a 3D face unlock module at the front, or both.

We can also expect to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset and run Android 10 operating system (OS).
