Google Pixel 4 might come with a rear telephoto camera


Anyone who tinkers with their Android smartphone knows how great Google Camera app is. XDA developers have been dedicating themselves to port it for other devices for the last few years. Recently they discovered references to a rear telephoto camera while scouring through the version 6.3 of the app. They said a “SABRE_UNZOOMED_TELEPHOTO” field was present there which Google internally uses as a name for Super Res Zoom feature. It is not fully clear if Google is opting for a telephoto camera over the ultra-wide rear camera, But they might follow Huawei and use both telephoto camera and super-resolution to produce a more detailed result. XDA also found a reference to “IR sensor” which might hint at google bring facial recognition like Apple.
