If you were asking yourself which details electronic camera sensing units Google’s upcoming Pixel 7 and also Pixel 7 Pro will certainly be utilizing, you’re in good luck as one resourceful programmer has actually gone checking out simply that in the midsts of Google’s code. It had not been very easy, though – the firm has actually obfuscated all the sensing units’ names in the code in order to quit leakages similar to this, yet sensing unit IDs can still be located and also matched to real components utilizing “different sources, such as electronic camera vehicle drivers on GitHub”, according to Kuba Wojciechowski, the resource these days’s information.
So allow’s dig in. The Pixel 7 and also Pixel 7 Pro both have the Samsung GN1 as their major electronic camera sensing unit, similar to the Pixel 6 and also 6 Pro, and also they additionally make use of the very same ultrawide also – the Sony IMX381. The selfie electronic camera is currently the very same on both designs, Samsung’s 3J1, a 11 MP sensing unit with double pixel autofocus. The Pixel 7 Pro has a brand-new telephoto sensing unit – the Samsung GM1. Its precursor utilized Sony’s extremely comparable IMX586.
Interestingly sufficient, there’s a 3rd mobile phone referenced, one codenamed Lynx. This has the very same GN1 major electronic camera sensing unit, coupled with a Sony IMX787 of unidentified function, possibly tele. The selfie sensing unit on this is brand-new also, the Sony IMX712, with 13 MP resolution. This Lynx can be a Pixel 7 Ultra, or simply an equipment system utilized by Google to inside evaluate brand-new electronic camera sensing units as they’re being supplied by distributors.
Moving on to the Pixel Tablet, this has 2 sensing units, one on the front, one on the back, and also they’re both Sony IMX355 – that’s by the way the very same sensing unit the routine Pixel 6 usages for its selfie camera.
Finally, the upcoming Pixel collapsible has a Samsung GN1 major electronic camera sensing unit, a Sony IMX386 ultrawide, an IMX363 also (tele perhaps?), along with an IMX355 – once more, the very same one used for the Pixel 6’s selfie snapper, so this will certainly probably additionally be utilized for that.
