Reports also suggest that the phones would either have an in-display fingerprint sensor or a 3D face unlock module at the front, or both. The bottom edge of the phone may feature two external speakers with a USB-C port in between

The upcoming Google Pixel smartphones — Pixel 4 and 4 XL — would feature a new Motion Mode for action scenes, an enhanced Night Sight feature and would offer 8x zoom, reports suggest.

Search engine giant Google is expected to refresh its Pixel series with the launch of the two smartphones late in October.

The new Motion Mode is said to allow users to capture high-quality action shots with moving subjects in the foreground and blurry backgrounds, The Verge reported on Friday.

The Night Sight feature would include speed-related enhancements, allowing the phone to take better pictures at night.

For 8x zoom, it is unclear whether the camera would feature optical zoom or a combination of both optical and digital.

Google Pixel 4 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The larger Pixel 4 XL will have a 6.3-inch OLED display with Quad HD+ resolution and the same 90Hz refresh rate.

According to reports, the Pixel 4 device would come with a square camera module at the back which would house a dual rear camera setup while until now all Pixel models only had a single camera sensor at the back.

Reports also suggest that the phones would either have an in-display fingerprint sensor or a 3D face unlock module at the front, or both. The bottom edge of the phone may feature two external speakers with a USB-C port in between. (IANS)

It will not work with audio files, at least at first; it will have to be live audio captured through a smartphone microphone, although Google says you could always play recorded audio through a speaker and capture it that way, the report added. (IANS)
