A few days after the official launch of Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, scheduled for October 19, new information has leaked online regarding the photographic sector on board the two devices.
A series of links intercepted by @evleaks have revealed in detail the capabilities of the cameras supplied to the Pro model, which will be equipped with three sensors: main 50MP, 48MP telephoto lens equipped with 4x optical zoom, 12MP ultra wide angle.
The main camera, according to what is indicated in the infographic that appeared on the net, And capable of receiving 150% more brightness than the sensor present on Pixel 5. This will allow you to obtain sharper images, with faithful colors and greater detail, as well as the opportunity to apply a series of filters while shooting.
Among the most interesting features coming with the new Pixels is the Magic
Eraser, an option that allows you to make unnecessary elements disappear from the frame, leaving the main subjects in the shot.
Google will also manage colors more precisely, with a specific function to make skin tones appear more natural based on lighting, as well as detailed portraits thanks to the Face Deblur.
Also present the Motion Mode which allows you to give depth to the photos (as shown in the example below) by leaving some elements moving in the background with respect to the subjects in the foreground.
Also packed with features is the Pixel 6 Pro’s front camera, equipped with an ultra-wide-angle sensor with 94 degree field of view and RAW mode. Here the possibility of letting more subjects enter the frame without loss of quality is emphasized.
As for the Pixel 6 equipment, the rumors give the telephoto lens as absent, while the 50MP sensor and the 12 MP ultra-wide angle remain on board. Less performing than the 6 Pro, according to what is currently known, also the front camera.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be announced to the public on October 19th, with an ad hoc event, and will arrive on the market by the end of the month with a starting price that should be around 649 euros.
The technical specifications of the camera suggest a decisive change of pace for Google. The current policy – a lot of Artificial Intelligence and few sensors compared to competitors – was the daughter of the mentality of Marc Levoy, who in the meantime has moved to Adobe.
The adoption of a 50-megapixel sensor, unlike the Pixel 5’s 12 and 16-megapixel pair, will make Google’s next smartphone adhere more to the dynamics followed by the competition: multiple sensors and very high resolutions. Perhaps to be able to attract a wider type of audience; although the risk is that the Pixel 6’s camera could lose its identity.
