Your search for a new smartphone could well be over. Today Google revealed their latest phones – the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. If you like what Google did with their previous Pixels or you’re looking for a new phone that’s great for photos, especially night-time shots, we think you’ll love these. They’re made the Google way.
Pixel 4 for photography
Google’s Pixel phones have a well-deserved reputation for producing incredible images, and their latest phones build on that with a dual-lens rear camera system, optical and electronic image stabilisation, dual-pixel phase detection, and clever software tweaks.
This year, Google is introducing Night Sight 2.0 – a system that combines the power of the phone’s dual-lens camera system with artificial intelligence and machine learning. Essentially, your Pixel 4 adapts to you and the environment, optimising to light and movement.
Low-light shots have always been tricky to perfect, often resulting in over-bright and blurry images. But with Night Sight, your shots look clear and detailed. You can even use it to capture astrophotography – taking photos of starry nights that look out of this world, with just a tap.
The Pixel 4’s hardware power and software smarts also combine to bring you closer to your subject. With Super Res Zoom, you can focus in on the smallest of details hiding in the background that you may have completely missed. It’s a new way of seeing your photos.
And just like with previous Pixel phones, Pixel 4 comes with unlimited online storage with Google Photos, so you can save all your photos and videos in high-quality, for free.
Motion Sense: a new way to use your Pixel
Pixel 4 is the first ever smartphone to feature Motion Sense and it will change the way you interact with your phone.
With Soli, Google’s new sensing technology built in to the top of the display, your Pixel 4 can accurately track hand gestures above the screen and allow you to control your phone hands-free.
Use simple hand gestures to perform everyday tasks, such as skipping music tracks, silencing calls or putting your alarm to sleep without having to touch the phone. It’s great for when you’re cooking, driving or exercising.
