Two cool new features of the Pixel Four digital camera will not be ported again to older Pixel telephones – Live HDR+ and Dual Exposure Controls. Those can solely run on the brand new {hardware}, so the Pixel 3, 3a and others are out of luck.

To be truthful, few telephones are quick sufficient to do real-time HDR preview. The Pixel 4 and Four XL technically aren’t both, what you see on their viewfinders is an approximation of the ultimate outcome. The results of the Dual Exposure sliders are previewed in actual time in order that they aren’t supported on older fashions both.

Google is throwing the Pixel 3 and 3a a bone, nonetheless – the astrography mode known as Night Sight will likely be backported to older fashions. It can snap up to fifteen exposures, every 16s lengthy, appropriate for the movement of the celebrities and the swaying of the timber and output a formidable shot of a starry sky.

But clearly there’s no real-time element right here. Chances are that the stay preview duties are dealt with by the brand new Pixel Neural Core and can’t run on the previous Pixel Visual Core.
