The Pixel 4 will have a Dual Exposure feature, many camera samples leak

Peter, 03 October 2019

As we saw in the leaked specs list, the Pixel 4 will have a new image processing chip – the Pixel Neural Core (the previous generation hardware is called Visual Core). There will be changes to the camera app as well, including a new Dual Exposure feature.

This mode will allow you to separately control the highlights and shadows in the photo. So, it’s sort of line manual HDR mode (HDR takes a short exposure for the highlights and a long one for the shadows and then merges the two images).

Here’s short video showing the dual slider in action:

And here are some camera samples showing what can be achieved using this mode. You can balance the shadows and highlights or go for a more artistic contre-jour shot.

Google’s October 15 event can’t come soon enough – the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have leaked all over the web, there are reviews published and some people are even trying to sell several Pixel 4 phones.

The Soli radar will be used for motion gestures - from basics like silencing an alarm or changing the audio track to gaming. That's right, Google has partnered with Niantic to develop a special version of its Pokemon game that can use motion controls.
