Almost preemptively, a staffer from Google’s silicon team explained what the new Google Tensor G2 brings to the Pixel 7 smartphone’s camera in terms of key innovations. He illuminates and reveals something about the future.
Champ (Tzu-Hung) Yen Outright complains that Google spent too much time on the new TPU when unveiling the Pixel 7 series, but little was left for other important improvements. An important point is, for example, DSP, digital signal processor.
Google has probably integrated a new DSP, which is hardly recognizable at first glance. There are some hard facts that one can “apply”. But compared to the first generation Tensor (Pixel 6), there are arguably some improvements.
Updates will bring more improvements to the camera
The new DSP, likely an in-house development by Google, could improve image processing. This is already achieved, but will expand further with future Pixel feature drops. Yen says we can expect better user experience and performance with future updates.
Already next December, which is just a month away, there will be a new Pixel feature drop. This is the first major update for the Pixel 7 phone and we expect some new stuff besides bug fixes. Let’s see if Google can improve the camera already, even if there is little reason to complain.
Google is increasingly trying to ensure that more and more important hardware components are adapted through its own development and therefore suitable for its own Pixel devices. The second tensor generation already shows that this is possible.
