Google's upcoming Pixel 7 series has been initially announced, however, most of the specs remain a mystery—including the camera setup. A new report is now alleging the type of sensors this duo will feature. The company could retain most of the camera specs particularly for the vanilla Pixel 7 getting a surprise selfie upgrade this year.


  • Google could retain most of the camera specs of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
  • The Pixel 7 could finally get a selfie improvement, including a 4K video.
  • Pixel Tablet is rumored to come with an 8MP selfie and main sensor.

Google would be switching to Samsung-made sensors in 2022 except for the ultrawide module according to a developer who shared his findings on Twitter. Both the Pixel 7 pair will sport a Samsung GN1 50MP main snapper paired with a Sony IMX381 ultrawide. The pro model will get an extra telephoto courtesy of Samsung, which replaces the IMX586 of the current Pixel 6 Pro.

As for regards to the front-facing camera, Google will be utilizing the Samsung 3J1 sensor this time. The said shooter will still boast 11MP count as the present IMX663. More importantly, it will also feature dual pixel autofocus technology as well as 4K video recording capabilities found on the Pixel 6 Pro. Additionally, it means the Pixel 7 will get the much-needed selfie improvement after coming from the 8MP selfie sensor and 1080p video of Pixel 6.

There is still no confirmation if Google will finally make face unlock generic to its Pixel devices later this year. The feature has been anticipated for some time now but is still missing even on Pixel 6a.

On the other hand, the leaker has also shared a few details on the Pixel Tablet's camera. It is now expected that Pixel Tablet will come with an 8MP selfie camera which is the same on its back. It is safe to say that next year's tablet of Google is designed to be affordable as suggested from the teaser materials published during Google I/O 2022 event.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
