Google's Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones have not yet been officially announced, but some information about their specifications is already known. According to Android Authority, the developers of these smartphones have ditched the Sony IMX363 camera sensor used in previous models and replaced it with a Samsung sensor.

According to the magazine, the main sensor of the novelty will be the Samsung ISOCELL GN2, it will be larger than its predecessor, and this will improve the quality of shooting in several ways. The sensor is said to be able to capture around 35% more light than its predecessor, produce brighter images in low light, and the light-adjusting shutter will act faster to reduce image blur.

As expected, the ultra-wide cameras of the regular Pixel 8 and the Pro version will be different. The Pixel 8 will have a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor, while the Pixel 8 Pro will have a 64MP Sony IMX787 sensor։ the new sensor will be almost twice as large as its predecessor and will significantly improve the quality of the ultra-wide-angle camera.

The Pixel 8 Pro will also get the same 48MP ISOCELL GM5-based periscope telephoto lens featured on the Pixel 7 Pro. This lens will provide 5x optical zoom.
