In another early APK teardown, XDA Developers found some evidence that Google is working on a much-needed video recording feature – 4K@60fps. This video recording mode has been around in the Android world for years now but it’s yet to make it to the Google purebreds.
Interestingly, the teardown is done on a still-unreleased Google Camera 7.4 APK, allegedly obtained from a Pixel 4a smartphone. That one certainly won’t have the new video recording mode as its chipset doesn’t support it but perhaps it will be seeded to the Pixel 3, 3 XL, 4 and 4 XL, which have the processing power to handle it.
In a less positive development the feature might only come with the upcoming Pixel 5 lineup in the Fall and Google is just preparing for it now.
