Google Pixel for the future may have 4D image stabilization?
Google has had an approved patent that suggests a bet on new camera technologies in smartphones.
The patent involves tracking 4D with optical image stabilization.
With this patent, the US company intends to adapt the stabilization of cameras with non-traditional methods.
Supposedly this new system uses light data to stabilize and predict camera movements.
This new, patent has technology that will try to create a 3D map of the pixels of the image.
These maps are generated by a set of 2D images and light detection data to streamline the capture process.
In the future, the Google Pixel may have an optical stabilization never seen before!
So the obvious question is: will this technology reach Pixel 4?
For now, it is not confirmed anything, but it is indeed a possibility.
Google Pixel 4 should only be released around October, so Google still has a window of time to implement this new stabilization system in their smartphones.
Of course, the term 4D turns out to be more marketing than anything else.
Stabilization technology focuses on creating three-dimensional maps created by reading static images and surrounding light.
The truth is that Google Pixel 3 has gathered a considerable reputation in the photographic department.
If Pixel 4 has above-average video stabilization, they can retake the distinction.
The patent that Google has registered also mentions a sensor that captures light better.
This will help to have better color reproduction and white balance.
Admittedly, video stabilization on smartphones is an Achilles heel for some models.
If Google can overcome this, the Pixel 4 can be very successful.
