Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro camera specifications emerge
Jon Prosser's Pixel 6 series renders have sparked plenty of rumours about Google's next flagship smartphones. Now, two leakers claim to have received information about the cameras in both devices. We should stress that neither has provided evidence for their claims, nor have we been able to verify them. Hence, we would recommend employing a healthy amount of scepticism.
According to Yogesh, Pixel Pro PVT units have large Sony camera sensors, a change from the 12 MP IMX363 found in most Pixel smartphones. Yogesh speculates that the new sensor could have a 50 MP native resolution, which sounds like either the IMX700 or IMX766. Currently, Huawei uses the IMX700 in the P40 and Mate 40 series, while Oppo and OnePlus use the IMX 766 in their flagship smartphones.
Additionally, the Pixel 6 series will reputedly have an 8 MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom, an upgrade on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 cameras. The Pixel 6 series is expected to have an ultra-wide-angle camera too, meaning that there will be no trade-off between it and a telephoto camera this time around. Moreover, Yogesh believes that both Pixel 6 series devices will have a colour correction sensor.
If these camera specifications are accurate, then the Pixel 6 series should deliver significantly better camera performance than the current Pixel 5. Google GS101 custom silicon could be an interesting prospect for the Pixel 6 series too, when it arrives this autumn.
