Google Pixel 4 Camera App Leaked, Showing Design Changes And New Features
Mishaal Rahman from the XDA Developers revealed that the new Google Pixel 4 camera app would boast a revamped GUI. Now, the camera modes are available below the shutter button, camera switch, and gallery. The camera app ‘shutter button’ is now available in a circle that matches the design of the other soft keys.
In 16:9 mode, the view covers almost the entire screen, leaving only a small place for some of the gesture navigation buttons. Besides, the new Google Pixel 4 camera app will not anymore show controls for Motion Photos, timer, and flash on the screen. Now, users will have to swipe down over the viewfinder to access those settings.
More interesting, Camera 7.0, the new Google Pixel 4 camera app that leaked online, would sport a so-called “astrography feature.” This function is linked with the new ‘Infinity’ focus option in Google’s Night Sight Mode. Also, Camera 7.0 now presents suggestions on Time Lapse mode to help users set the right speed that matches with the specific scenario.
