Google Pixel 8 rumor suggests a major camera sensor upgrade

What you need to know

  • Google may introduce a new kind of sensor to the Pixel 7 series’ successor.
  • The Pixel 8 series is rumored to feature staggered HDR support, which leads to reduced ghosting in photos.
  • This suggests that Google’s upcoming flagship phone series may include Samsung’s Isocell GN2 sensor, which offers staggered HDR.

Google’s existing method for capturing HDR shots with Pixel phones requires taking a series of short exposures, which can lead to longer processing times and potentially blurry photos. The next Pixel series may address this shortcoming.

According to leaker and developer Kuba Wojciechowski (opens in new tab), the Google Pixel 8 may include support for staggered HDR (via Android Authority (opens in new tab)). It’s a relatively new type of sensor that debuted with Samsung’s ISOCELL GN2 last year, promising rich detail and vivid colors.
