Google Pixel astrophotography might be getting a sweet new timelapse feature on its next generation models, which should also mean improved overall camera quality!
Google Pixel handsets have always been convincingly marketed mobile devices, and TechTimes notes that its upcoming models could be getting a feature that will make them even harder to ignore–especially for space photography enthusiasts!
The leading smartphone cameras on the market today belong to models of the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone families. Those who are especially fond of capturing clear photos and videos are probably among the population that has made the switch over to either Samsung Galaxies (for their 100x zoom capacity), or Apple phones (due to the tech giant’s incorporation of advanced LiDar technology into its devices).
Despite the fact that Samsung and Apple never quite seem to back down in terms of performance, it doesn’t look like the Google Pixel has any plans of being left behind. Adding a niftily enhanced camera mode for Astrophotography Timelapse could be just the move to pull, and word has it that such a wowing new feature could definitely be in the cards for the handsets’ future.
What does the current Advanced Camera Mode offer?
Two Google Pixel models that possess the series’ Astrophotography Timelapse mode are the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 5, both of which are fairly up-to-date devices. In exciting news, the search giant itself has confirmed the potential for an even better version of the feature to come along with the still upcoming Google Play Store version 8.2.3.
Moreover, Google stated as well that this updated camera mode may also be a part of its Pixel Feature Drops.
This further enhanced Astrophotography Timelapse mode should give users the ability to photograph the stars, moon, and perhaps even other celestial bodies in stunningly high definition, by smartphone standards at the very least. In other words, while it sounds too good to be true, this could mean the upcoming Google Pixel cameras might have the ability to operate under little to no light!
From the looks of it, this will be a worthy competitor for Apple iPhones, as well as Samsung Galaxies and their 100x zoom capability that captures the moon in beautiful HD, along with several other leading smartphone brands.
What makes the Google Pixel worth it?
Yes, a highly advanced Astrophotography Timelapse mode could the only selling point some people could ever ask for, but there is more to Google smartphones that just their camera quality.
Google Pixel devices support a highly functional and convenient ecosystem that helps users steer clear of bloatware, keep pesky apps and other unnecessary services or software from using too much background energy, and they also get the newest OS updates in comparison to Google’s other products.
Enthusiasts of space photography who can’t quite go all out on bank-breaking equipment will be delighted to spend a little (but not too much) extra on a mobile phone with a space-worthy camera. Get a Google Pixel 4a with the Astrophotography feature to document your favorite celestial phenomena, or simply observe them though a TELMU Telescope.
