We’re learning additional Pixel 4 tidbits today, this one concerning video recording. According to source code previewed by XDA, Google did test 4K at 60 frames per second (fps) video recording, but before release, opted to pull it.
Currently on the Pixel 4, 4K recording is limited to 30fps, which some folks don’t appreciate considering there are plenty of phones currently on the market capable of doing it.
Back when the phone was first announced, Google addressed a concerned user on Twitter about the Pixel 4 did not offer 4K @ 60.
While that reasoning makes perfect sense, what doesn’t make sense is Google putting only 64GB into a smartphone that starts at $799. Frankly, it’s ridiculous at this point.
