Samsung is launching a new image sensor, which could be built into the Pixel 8 (Pro).
Google has so far kept it a mystery as to which image sensor will be used for the main camera on the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. But the light seems to be coming slowly into the darkness. Samsung has now introduced a new image sensor that could be in the new Google phones, Reported Media from Korea.
While the GN1 was still on the Pixel 7 (Pro), the new GNK now appears to be built into current Google phones. As the name suggests, this is a further development, so it’s not a completely new image sensor. And you’ll eventually notice that there’s apparently no big leap forward with the Pixel 8 Pro.
As already known, Samsung is using new HDR technology for this image sensor to enable better HDR processing. As users have reported this in the past few days, it could also be a problem. However, Google also skimps on functions and, for example, doesn’t offer 8K30 for video recording, but offers a maximum of 4K60.
otherwise technical basis GNK Not much different, the image sensor is slightly larger at 1/1.3″ and so individual pixels remain unchanged. All in all, there is reasonable hardware that Google achieves very well with good software.
