Original Google Pixel smartphones just got a lot more exciting

The striking "oh-so orange" colour gives the device a confident, bold appearance - but those wanting something a bit more discreet can always opt for the black or white options.

However, there are still some issues with the Pixel 4's display which is getting a patch with some updates, Google is working hard to fix the issues soon. Google's Black Friday discount for the Pixel 4 leaked online early, and it's great news for anyone looking to save some cash. As a result, people can buy Pixel 4 and 4 XL in 599 United States dollars and 699 USD, respectively.

Levoy said that he calls their approach a "software-defined camera", which most of the time just means capturing multiple photos, and combining data from each in order to produce a better, single, final picture.


Google Pixel 4's astrophotography mode is available as part of the new Google Camera version 7.2.

However, the app didn't come with a lot of features, as users can only link their Google account with the app which they will use in future for streaming games. Rather, it's a feature that will automatically be activated when appropriate while using Night Sight mode. It has attempted to build on this with capabilities it claims allow people to take bright, clearer pictures of the night sky for enhanced visuals of stars, the moon and galaxies, but cloudy nights have made it impossible to try this out so far. Levoy also offered the opinion that a telephoto is more useful generally than a wide angle, clearly a dig at Apple's addition of an ultra-wide-angle hardware lens to its latest iPhone 11 Pro models.

With a $ 50 discount, you have a Pixel 3a at $ 349 and Pixel 3a XL at $ 429. Target is offering a $300 gift card with the "qualified activation" of a Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL.


The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are pretty pricey compared to the competition.

The only thing I'm uncertain about is which Pixels get to play with this new feature.

Photography remains the Pixel's saving grace, but it can't rely on that alone forever.
