Recently, the Pixel 4 series confirmed featuring dual rear cameras by Google, a first for the series that had been earlier stuck to a single rear lens despite its rivals moving to two, three, and even four rear sensors.
According to some leaked information, it has been revealed that the Pixel 4 series smartphones will feature a telephone lens, which curbs confusion about whether the brand will be using such a lens or a wide-angle lens on its next flagships. Since the series is always bringing significant improvements in camera tech with each generation, so there are high expectations from the series this time as well.
The folks at XDA Developers and 9To5Google teams in their own APK teardown got which seemed to be “an error message used for debugging the telephoto code”, and this telephoto code revealed dimensions of images the Pixel 4 camera that will support 4656×3496 pixels, 4656×3492 pixels, or 2328×1748 pixels.
A report says, “From these resolutions, we can calculate that the Pixel 4 may have a whopping 16MP camera sensor equipped with a telephoto lens.” Of course, there have been quite a few assumptions here that have been taken, so this update should also be taken with a pinch of salt.Apart from all this, the code also has references to a front-facing IR sensor, which is an infrared sensor. This type of sensor would be useful in 3D face recognition systems, like the one being noticed in Apple’s face ID setup for iPhone X. Previous reports have also suggested that Pixel 4 series might also come up with P3 wide color gamut capture support. Other reports have leaked hints about the new Display White Balance setting along with color options such as Blue, White, and Mint Green.
