Pixel 4 Getting December's Android Update Next Week, Here are the Fixes

Most confusingly, though, Google is apparently breaking out its Pixel-specific functional patch notes this month, which often describe useful or noteworthy feature changes and tweaks.

This is also on the heels of many folks with a Pixel 4 or 4 XL failing to pull down the November update at all. With the Pixel 4 series, Google has stepped up its camera with new features, one being the Astrophotography mode.

Not long after in the wake of propelling the Night Sight highlight with Pixel 3, the product mammoth discovered that watchers will endure movement obscured mists and tree limbs in a picture on the off chance that it looks sharp generally however they don't endure "movement obscured stars that resemble short line portions".

Both OTA images and full factory images have been posted for the Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 2, and 2016 Pixel XL and Pixel, though build numbers vary.

Consisting of the 2019-12-01 and 2019-12-05 security patch levels, the Android Security Patch for December 2019 addresses a total of 42 security flaws across various Android components, including Android Framework, Media framework, Android System, Kernel components, as well as Qualcomm components, including closed-source ones.

One of the unique selling points of the Google Pixel 4 apart from Motion Sense has got to be the cameras.

As noted, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are conspicuously absent. Notoriously absent is the Pixel 4 which may be related to the issues they had last month where the OTA update was dated earlier than the release ROM resulting in many phones not receiving the update - including mine, it still sits on the October patch. Fortunately, the company has now revealed that the 2019 Pixel flagships will receive the update next week some time, while also detailing what to expect.
