Google Pixel 4 XL – 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 XL.

On the software side of things, we’ve learned that Google has planned at least two major camera updates for the Google Pixel 4 XL. 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.

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.

The reviews have been pretty damning of the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL, but we don’t think it’s all warranted, as they arguably remain the best Pixel devices to date.

Google and other phone manufacturers put a lot of work into crafting the design of their smartphones, but most of us just end up slapping a case on top. Many cases take away from the look of the device, but brands such as Nomad make them even better. Lately, I’ve been using Nomad’s Rugged leather Pixel 4 case and it’s quickly become a favorite.
