Insider: Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro may get drastic camera improvements
Although Google only recently introduced the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, the company is already working on their successors.
Here's What We Know
The information was shared by insider and dataminer @Za_Raczke. He spotted devices codenamed Husky and Shiba in the code of the Google Camera Go app. According to the leak, both will support Staggered HDR technology. Thanks to the new feature, the devices will be able to take photos with different exposures at the same time. This will reduce capture time and reduce the likelihood of blurring the photo during movement.
Long story short, courtesy of Google we got a clean, unobfuscated version of Google Camera Go, which includes references that seemingly confirm that flagship Pixels in 2023 - Husky and Shiba - will support staggered HDR. pic.twitter.com/YdaWTlGznN- Kuba Wojciechowski⚡ (@Za_Raczke) December 19, 2022
By the way, Samsung's main 50 MP ISOCELL GN1 camera in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro does not support Staggered HDR technology. Therefore, the insider suggested that the novelties will come with the new Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor, which claims to support Staggered HDR.
