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


With videos limited to 30 fps, quality will also be limited and video noise will increase. The Google already went public to explain the reason for this limitation.
Google launched its new Google Pixel 4 to 15 October. One of the best things about the device is that it records in 4K, but only at 30 frames per second (fps).

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



As you can see in the tweet above, one user wondered why there was no 4K video recording at 60fps on the smartphone. The official Google account rushed to argue that it did so because users prefer 1080p.

Google says users prefer 1080p


"Hi, Pixel 4 supports 4k video recording in the rear camera at 30fps. We find that most users use 1080p, so we focus our energy on improving our quality in that mode, instead of enabling a 4k mode at 60fps. which can use up to half a gigabyte of storage every minute. "Google wrote.


This question is raised for two main reasons. First, Google built a legacy of high quality 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 cannot be an excuse. Just as it can not be an excuse to say that users prefer 1080p. Also, if users have guaranteed quality in 4K, they will surely opt for that resolution.
