Google has just launched two new Pixel 5 and 4a 5 G smartphones. The two phones have just launched with intriguing specifications for hardware and software. Although the Pixel 5 is not the flagship phone with the highest hardware configuration, the Snapdragon 700 SoC series still supports 5G. As for the applications, out of the box, both the devices feature Android 11 and some exclusive Pixel apps and services such as the camera app. The stock of older Pixel 4 (XL), 3 (XL), 2 (XL) and 4a and 3a cameras have all been updated to the new Google v7.6 APK camera.
Sadly, Google has not mentioned what’s new in the latest version of the camera, including v7.6.
The Play Store listing only mentions the age-old changelog of dual exposure controls to adjust brightness and HDR of your photo, added Astrophotography feature to Night Sight mode for the Pixel 3, 3a, and 4. Top Shot photos feature with touch and hold on the shutter button to capture. Here is the complete changelog from the Play Store listing:
Added dual exposure controls to adjust brightness and HDR of your photo (Pixel 4).
Added Astrophotography to Night Sight to allow you take a picture of the Milky Way with one tap (Pixel 3, 3a, and 4).
Added Frequent Faces to help you capture Top Shot photos where the people you photograph most are smiling and not blinking (Pixel 4).
Added Touch and hold on the shutter button to capture Top Shot photos in the default camera mode (Pixel 2, 3, 3a, and 4).
We do, however, have a list of features from previous versions of the Pixel camera, such as the Gcam 7.5. “Audio zoom” allows you to capture audio / sound from the microphone in a particular direction with a motion blur effect that provides DSLR-like quality for images of moving objects. The flash intensity allows you to change the flash intensity at will. The video sharing feature now also applies to videos. In Google camera 7.6, we should expect all these features as well.
On the other hand, Pixel 5 and 4a 5G feature new Google Camera 8.0 out of the box. This camera update didn’t come to the older Pixel series yet. However, you can still install it using our Gcam 8.0 post from here alongside your original camera app. You can expect some of Google camera 8.0 features into the Gcam 7.6 as well. Check out all the Pixel 5 and 4a camera features here.
Moreover, previous Google Camera 7.4 enables 8X camera zoom for video recording on the current flagships Pixel 4 and 4XL. It also brings a new toggle for changing resolution while video recording in the dropdown menu on the viewfinder. Later, Google released a newer stable Google Camera 7.4.200 APK as well.
