One of the main selling points of Google’s Pixel phone line has always been been the cameras, and the Pixel 6 seeks to continue this tradition. The camera has long been the main selling point of Google’s Pixel smartphones.
According to XDA Developers, which came with an unpublished internal version of Google’s Camera app and additional camera details from an anonymous source, Pixel 6’s camera upgrades will include manual white balance adjustment and a so called mmagic eraser, which will hopefully bring the item removal tool I’ve been waiting for from Google because it announcement at I / O 2017.
With a little reverse engineering, it looks like the XDA developers figured out the camera specifications for the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. The camera tape seen on the back can house a 50 megapixel camera for the main lens and a 12 MP ultra wide-angle camera. The Pixel 6 Pro will also be have a rear 48-MP telephoto lens. Up front, the Pro will have a 12 MP selfie camera and the Pixel 6 will have an 8 MP lens. The camera app code points to the Pro’s wide-angle selfie feature, although no field-of-view details have been listed.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will likely both support 4K video recording at 60 fps on their main camera lenses, with up to 7x zoom. XDA discovered that recording at a lower frame rate could allow zoom levels up to 20x.
The Pixel 6’s Camera app will also offer new editing capabilities, such as a automatic white balance function that can adapt to the subject’s skin Your, probably based on more inclusive computer photography algorithm the company described to Google I / O earlier this year. The camera reported “FThe “Ace Deblur” function will engage multiple photos to help fill in the data when faces get blurry.
Let’s get back to this magic eraser tool: XDA found evidence of a named feature “Swiss”, which seems to rely on Google’s custom Tensor chip to remove objects or people from a photo. There is no information about it beyond a code name, but it certainly made me stroke my invisible beard. Could this be the evolution of the delete fence feature?
There are a host of other suggested features in the Google Camera app code leak. Google could revamp the way the “selfie light” appears when taking a photo, and the auto focus and exposure lock can be renamed to “scene lock”. There is proof that I amemotion blur capability that you can add after taking a photo, and what appears to be a “baby mode “, which seems to work by adjusting the camera to automatically shoot when it sees a child crawling through the frame.
We’re intrigued by what the XDA developers have unearthed in the leaked code, however it is possible that not all of these features prove true when the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are finally announced. We’re getting closer to the official launch, but if you’re really excited to see the Pixel 6, we’ve heard you can drop by the Google Store in New York City to get a glimpse of Google’s next flagship product through a window– if you like that sort of thing.
