Pixel 4 Camera UI & Astrophotography Mode Now Available For Older Pixels

Google has the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on sale at a cool 25 percent discount

So pour one out for the OG Pixel, an ugly phone with a lot promise that started a whole new era in Google hardware and software design.

The Google Pixel 4 was released recently and one of the main selling points for the device was its 90Hz display, which offered a smooth user interface and support for high refresh rate content consumption. Google surprised faithful fans by actually upgrading the now three-year-old phones to Android 10 as well. The Galaxy S6 Edge, which came out just one year later, encountered a bending problem much worse than the iPhone 6.

For those who haven't been keeping track, the Pixel 1's official support period lasted around three years - that's certainly not bad, and smartphones from other phonemakers often stop receiving updates far sooner.

And in typical Google fashion, the company announced earlier this month that the astrophotography feature will be coming to older Pixel models (as will the Recorder app that produces transcriptions on-device in real-time).

Google set a two-year period for providing Android updates to its Pixel phones which, considering the annual cycle, translates to two major Android version updates only. Google said that the new features like Live HDR+, and Dual Exposure Controls will be available only on the latest Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. "After that, we can't guarantee continued support". A YouTuber spotted the Google Pixel 4 bending issue. Not only does it fix bugs and patch holes, it might add a little functionality, too, depending on what device you're using. If you have a Pixel 3, you might be luckier, but that's a definite regression for Pixel 2 owners. If you are holding out from buying a Pixel 4, you probably made the right move.

According to latest reports, XDA Senior Member, cstark27, has been able to not only increase the maximum zoom in the app but also use the telephoto camera at higher zoom levels, bringing stellar shots at up to 16x zoom.
