After months of leaks, rumors, and teasers by Google itself, the company finally announced the Pixel 4 series. The handsets include a 90Hz OLED display, a new dual-lens camera with lots of features, and more. One thing that Google didn't include is support for 4K 60fps video capture, something that pretty much every other OEM has adopted in its premium smartphones.
According to the Made by Google Twitter account, there are two reasons for this. One is that it takes up too much storage, and the other is that everyone just uses 1080p anyway, although that probably has something to do with 1080p being the default on most devices.
The idea that it takes up too much storage is notable because the Pixel 4 series only comes in 64GB and 128GB storage configurations. It seems like this is something that could have been pretty easily solved with a larger storage option.
As far as the majority of users sticking with 1080p, that may be true, but it still leaves Google with a flagship phone that doesn't have one of the main video recording features that other premium handsets have.
