Today, it seems that we have already fallen short for a phone to make 2, 3 or 5 increases in an optical way thanks to its cameras. Since the introduction of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, all manufacturers are putting the batteries in offering zoom with many increases and little loss of quality. For example, the Huawei P30 Pro You can zoom in x50 and still keep an incredibly good detail. Well, it seems that the next flagship Google have a similar feature.
It has been on the Instagram of one of Google's design leaders, where a photo taken by a Pixel phone has been uploaded on the Google DStudio. Subsequently, another Google employee ensures that that photograph had been taken with a Pixel phone and with 20 magnifications. As you know, no current Pixel phone has the ability to take photos with such magnification, so it is an exclusive feature of Google Pixel 4.
The Google Pixel 4 will have zoom x2 optical and x20 digital
Currently, all phones on the market can make a maximum of 10 x zoom on one of its sensors. What does this mean? Than Technically, the Huawei P30 Pro does not make a digital x50 zoom, but it performs 10 digital magnifications on its sensor with 5x lens. Ten increases of 5 increases, are 50 increases. The same goes for the normal Huawei P30, whose maximum zoom is 30x. In turn, its sensor with zoom lens is 3 optical magnification. Ten increases of three increases, thirty increases. The same goes for the Google Pixel 4.
If we take into account that the photo taken has 20 magnifications and assuming that this is the maximum zoom that the phone in question can do, if we divide among the ten digital magnifications, we have to the Google Pixel 4 will have a telephoto camera with two optical increases. The truth is that the photo presents a good level of detail to have been made with so many increases, but what surprises us most is the dynamic range it has, despite the lights and shadows that appear in it.
If we add to this type of increase the technology Sper High Res Zoom that they presented with the Pixel 3 (use the vibration of our pulse to improve the level of detail), the Google Pixel 4 It could be one of the phones with the best zoom in the market, competing not so much in quantity of increases, but in the quality of the final photograph, a section much more important than the previous one.
