Some hidden Android codes report the new Google Pixel 7 phone series with camera upgrades. The Google IO annual developer conference announced the upcoming Google Pixel 7 flagship smartphone. Although we don’t know much about the new phone, the latest debug documentation for Android discovered some references that hint about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphone details.
Android developer, Kuba Wojciechowski, revealed that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro would include Samsung’s 11-megapixel Isocell 3J1 sensor in their ‘selfie’ cameras at the front. The Isocell 3J1 allows dual-pixel autofocus, offering enhanced focusing and face-authentication functions and Samsung’s ‘Smart WDR’ feature for improved dynamic range.
Moreover, the Pixel 7 phones might have rear camera sensors similar to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. They would have Samsung’s 50-megapixel Isocell GN1 for the primary lens, with a Sony IMX381 for the ultrawide lens.
However, a Sony IMX586 will replace the telephoto sensor on the Pixel 7 Pro instead of the Isocell GM1 found in the current Pixel 6 Pro.
Google’s latest upgrades will include an 8-megapixel lower resolution camera in the Pixel 7 edition and an 11-megapixel camera in the Pixel 7 pro edition. However, the cameras offer lower image quality than the Pixel 6 model and might not include 4K selfie videos.
Wojciechowski further referred to an unknown Google device code named ‘Lynx – L10’, which features a 50-megapixel Isocell GN1 with a new 64-megapixel Sony IMX787. It is similar to the device found in ZTE’s recently-launched Axon 40 Ultra. In addition, the hint reveals the use of the Sony IMX712 sensor in its front-facing camera by the Lynx L10, which has yet not been announced.
All this information shows that Google is developing a device with detailed upgrades, including advanced technology in camera hardware and incredibly processing software. In addition, the next Google handset will have high-tech accessories and offer comprehensive functions.
The Google code reports a new Pixel Tablet T6 featuring two 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensors and a new ‘P7’ foldable smartphone featuring the 50-megapixel Isocell GN1 with an 11-megapixel Sony IMX363 and an 8-megapixel IMX355 camera.
Even though its sales score of Google was behind Apple and Samsung’s, the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro are the smartphones Google offers. The Pixel 7 features show significant changes in its central processor, with upgrades that might help apps and AI responses to function better and faster.
Furthermore, the camera updates would show enhanced image quality and video recording, similar to Google’s past Pixel ranges.
