Before Google unveils this smartphone, we have concluded a list of features we felt Google will introduce for the Google Pixel 4. It seems most of the features have been revealed yesterday.

    Dual-camera to capture the perfect photo

    For the first time ever, Google upgrades its camera for its Google Pixel 4. Google Pixel 4 features a dual-camera setup. It has a main 16MP camera and a 12.2MP telephoto camera. When it comes to capturing photos, Google is always at its best. With this new dual-camera system and Google’s new Super Res Zoom software, you surely can capture great photos with your Google Pixel 4 even from a long distance.

    Google has already introduced the Night Sight feature in the previous Pixel 3. With this feature, you can already take stunning photos in complete low-light situation. Now, Google is taking a step forward on its Night Sight feature where you can shot the night sky, the stars, and even the Milky Way. If you own the previous Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a you will also get this latest camera app update.

    The other new camera feature is dual exposure control. With both the HDR+ and dual exposure control feature, you can now fine-tune the brightness and the amount of detail in the shadows before capturing a photo. For example, taking shots during sunset is difficult due to the brightness of the sun. With Pixel 4, you can easily adjust the setting and know exactly how your photo will look like.

    Pixel 4 Motion Sense: Detects your movement

    As we said earlier, Pixel 4 has a new feature called Motion Sense. It uses a small radar sensor to detect your movement around your phone. It is so accurate until it can event initiate your face unlock when you are reaching your phone. On top of it, you can use the new Quick Gesture feature to skip songs or reject a phone call. Just easily wave your hand snooze your alarms when you are lazy to wake up in the morning.

    Always the best Google Assistant

    We all know Google’s Google Assistant is the best feature in any smartphone. It is truly your personal assistant. Now Google Assistant is can get your things done for you in a faster way. Querying your questions is going to be completely easy. You just have to say a phrase and continue from where you left off. Google Assistant remembers the keywords and it can know what you want to do. For instance, you can ask the Assistant to “show my photos from New York” and then say “the ones in Central Park.” Then, you can share a picture by saying “send it to Mom.”

    All new Recorder and Personal Safety app

    The Recorder app we all know is something we used to record our voice or important messages. Now, the Recorder app can transcribe your voice recording and identify common sounds such as music and applause. With this new feature, you can easily search your important recordings by using the keywords itself. Google will be rolling this audio transcript feature for more languages soon.
