Performance in low-light conditions will reportedly be far superior to the outgoing generation of Nexus smartphones.
Allen Ngo,

The Nexus 5X and 6P are just weeks away from launch, but there are of course those lucky few who already have said devices on hand to share with the world.

Professional photographer Romain Guy has shared a collection of images taken with a Nexus 6P on Full Auto mode with no post-processing tricks. Furthermore, the user claims that all photos were shot in dark or dim settings to show off the low-light capabilities of the phone. Picture quality is very good based on these pictures.

Colors, however, do appear a bit saturated. There is also some noise in each of these photos, which the source claims was due to brightening of the photos with the default camera App. Thus, these pictures must have been even darker in their original takes. Nonetheless, details are captured surprisingly well, especially of the individual magazines and books on the shelf.

Of course, a verdict on camera quality cannot be made based on sources like this. Guy is a Google employee, after all, so these are probably the best pictures the Nexus 6P is capable of under similar conditions. It's worth noting that the Nexus 5X also sports the same 12.3 MP camera with Electronic Image Stabilization, so both should have identical camera quality.

Expect our full review on both new Nexus devices as we move closer to launch.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
