When it comes to hardware, Google is horrible at keeping secrets, with a majority of its Pixel lineup being leaked or even spotted in the wild long before their launches. The trend is continuing with the upcoming Google Pixel 8 series too, as its camera specs have allegedly been leaked.
This time around, the leak was shared by Android Authority which claimed to have received the information from an insider inside Google. According to the leak, the main camera sensors of both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will see significant improvements.
Both devices will allegedly sport the Samsung ISOCELL GN2 as its main camera sensor, which can capture 35 per cent more light than the ISOCELL GN2 found on the Pixel 7 series. The sensor is also capable of shooting video at 8k30fps, though the current GCAm software doesn’t actually support this frame rate just yet.
Besides that, the leak also revealed a better 64MP Sony IMX787 ultra-wide camera on the Pixel 8 Pro. If the sensor sounds familiar, it’s actually the same sensor as the Pixel 7a’s primary camera. Meanwhile, the telephoto camera remains the same as the Pixel 7 Pro.
As for the Pixel 8, its ultra-wide camera is still the same sensor with a slightly wider field of view. Of course, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed yet. Well, based on Google’s previous Pixel leaked information history, we won’t be surprised if it turns out to be true.
