It’s also an interesting look, by comparison you’ll see the raw hardware of three generations of Pixel cameras.
Have you ever wondered why Google’s Pro smartphone camera isn’t centered? A background for this is the periscope camera (zoom), which by design does not require much depth, but requires a lot of space in width.
A new image compares the camera sensors of the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 8 Pro. There has been a lot of growth in the last few years and you can clearly see the progress in the last few years just from that. Especially with ultra wide angle and telephoto cameras.
A new model is used for the ultra-wide-angle sensor, and the middle camera between the Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 8 Pro gets a big boost (48 instead of 12 MP). But with Periscope you can now see a significantly larger aperture opening, which allows more light to enter the sensor.
