Pixel 4 doesn’t shoot 4K at 60fps and Google has an excuse for that

Google Pixel 4

Google introduced its new Google Pixel 4 on October 15th. One of the great things about the device is that it is shooting at 4K, but only at 30 frames per second (fps).

With videos being limited to 30fps, the quality will also be limited, and video noise will increase. Google has already gone public to explain why this limitation.

As you can see from the tweet above, a user has objected to the lack of 60fps 4K video recording on the smartphone. Google’s official account rushed to argue that it did so because users prefer 1080p.

Google says users prefer 1080p

“Hi, Pixel 4 supports 4k video recording on the rear camera at 30fps. We find that the majority of users stick with 1080p, so we focus our energy on improving our quality in this mode, versus enabling a 4k 60fps mode that could use up to half a gigabyte of storage every minute. ”wrote Google.

This question is placed on the table for two major reasons. First, Google has been building a legacy of high-quality photographic cameras in the Pixel range. However, the video still leaves something to be desired.

Most premium smartphones on the market now offer 4K at 60fps

On the other hand, most premium smartphones on the market already combine these two features in video recording. OnePlus 7T Pro limits this same recording to 5 minutes due to storage limitations.

Google is right to say that they are heavy files, but that can’t be an excuse. Just as it cannot be an excuse for users to use 1080p. Also, if users are guaranteed quality in 4K, they certainly won’t give up that resolution.
