The camera specifications of Google’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Pixel 8 Pro, have been leaked online months ahead of its expected debut. According to tipster Ice Universe, the Pixel 8 Pro’s primary camera may feature Samsung’s ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor, which was introduced in February 2021. This suggests that the smartphone will have a 50-megapixel resolution and will offer better results in low-lighting conditions due to quad pixel-binning technology that simulates a larger pixel size. The camera will also let users record full-HD videos at 480fps, 4K videos at 120fps, and 8K video at 30fps.
Leaked Camera Sensor
The Pixel 8 Pro is expected to feature the Samsung ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor that was unveiled by the company earlier this year. The sensor is 1/1.12 inches in size and offers a 50-megapixel resolution. The sensor uses quad pixel-binning technology, which simulates a larger pixel size to offer better results in low-lighting conditions. Additionally, the GN2 sensor lets users shoot full-HD videos at 480fps, 4K videos at 120fps, and 8K video at 30fps.
