Pixel 4 camera specs, launch date and Motion Sense countries leak, astrophotography is a thing

Pixel 4 camera specs, launch date and Motion Sense countries leak, astrophotography is a thing
We are a few hours away from the Pixel 4/XL unveiling but retailers are waving the white flag on NDAs, and have posted their Google phone pages already. The Pixel 4 has been thoroughly leaked by Mediamarkt now, costing 749 in euros or $799, with a launch date of October 22, while the 4 XL will run you $899. Pretty stingy with the 64GB basic storage but we digress.

The point is that the retailer leak also lists the full specs sheet for the world to see, leaving no stone unturned. The 5.7" FHD+ OLED panel, the Snapdragon 855 processor and the 6GB RAM we already knew.

From the things we weren't quite sure about, we learn that the camera specs include a 16 MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture, in addition to the 12MP main sensor with f/1.7. Selfies will be taken by an 8MP fixed-focus snapper with comparatively narrow 90 degree range.

The big news is that the specs list indeed confirms the rumored "astrophotography" and "Dual exposure" features, and Google even advises to put the Pixel 4 on a tripod and in a Night Sight mode to take better pictures of the galaxies above you. Huawei started it! The Dual exposure option lets you adjust the brightness of tricky sections in the frame on the fly with a slider in the viewfinder.

Google's radar-based gesture navigation Motion Sense will be available in the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan and most European countries at launch, but not in China or Japan. Last but not least, at 5.79 x 2.71 x 0.32 inches (147.1 x 68.8 x 8.2 mm), the Pixel 4 is refreshingly small, but we have some reservations about the 2800 mAh battery capacity.

You call them disappointing yet the Pixel 4 will most likely take the top spot for Cameras on a Smartphone. However that's really the only upside of the device.
