Dual Exposure Camera controls on Google Pixel 4
According to a report by 9to5Google, Google Pixel 4 will come with a new and likely-unique “Dual Exposure Camera Control”. This new feature will add a secondary slider to the interface allowing for live manipulation of shadows and highlights. It will work well to act as a replacement for full-blown manual control. This information comes right after the company removed manual white balance controls from Google camera.
The report also includes a promo video showcasing how the feature works. Users can darken the image with the help of a sun0shaped slider. The lower half of the slider will be able to increase the details in the shadows. This means Google Pixel 4 users will be able to capture properly exposed images in bright sunlight.

This means that users will be able to easily share content on their accounts with the help of these shortcuts.

Beyond this, yet another report shared high-resolution camera samples from the upcoming Google Pixel 4.
