According to a new report, Google plans to bring a gimbal camera to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, along with improvements to their video recording capabilities. Apparently, custom ISP and NPU chips are due for both devices, too.

@FrontTron has published more information about the Pixel 6 series cameras, following on from the details offered by Max Weinbach last week. It is unclear where @FrontTron has got their information from, but it is usually Naver, a South Korean blogging site.

According to @FrontTron, the Pixel 6 series will support a 'gimbal-like steady cam mode', a feature that remains rare on smartphones. However, Vivo released the X50 Pro with a gimbal camera last year, followed a few months later by the LG Wing. Both work reasonably well, even if they are just an extension of OIS found in most modern smartphones.

Additionally, @FrontTron claims that the Pixel 6 will use a 'bigger Samsung sensor'. There is no indication that this will be the device's primary camera sensor, although it seems to be implied. Moreover, @FrontTron asserts that Google will equip the Pixel 6 series with custom Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and Image Signal Processor (ISP) chips.

Furthermore, the Pixel 6 series will represent a big improvement in videography compared to the Pixel 5. Google's most recent flagship is no slouch in this department, but Google has a way to go in catching Apple and its current iPhones. You can read more about the Pixel 6 series' supposed specifications here.
