“According to XDA Developers, this feature captures multiple photos at once and combines them with machine learning to add a motion blur to the background. However, that functionality might be missing from the upcoming Pixel 6a,” IANS news agency reported.
The report mentioned that it might use the same Google Tensor GS101 chipset as the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the phone might be missing a few features, including Motion Mode.
“Initially discovered by Kuba Wojciechowsk, the code for showing Pixel Tips about Motion Mode is intended to appear on devices with PIXEL_2021_EXPERIENCE, which includes the Pixel 6 series and upcoming Pixel 6,” the report further added.
“However, the code is built to exclude devices with the codename “bluejay,” which matches the expected codename for the Pixel 6a — the bluejay name appeared in retail inventory systems recently, according to a recent report from Android Police,” said IANS.
The exclusion for tips about Motion Mode on the Pixel 6a might be a sign the phone will not support the camera feature. That might be due to the older camera sensors the phone is expected to use, which match what Google included on the Pixel 3-5a, instead of the upgraded setup on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the report noted.
In related news, Google is planning to launch its upcoming Pixel Watch with Wear OS 3.1 soon. According to GizmoChina, tipster Evan Blass has hinted that the Google Pixel Watch that runs on Wear OS 3.1 could be launched soon. The smart wearable device has been a subject of speculation and uncertainty for quite some time.
