At I/O 2022, Google offered us a peek at the upcoming Pixel 7 series, which is set to launch this year in the fall. This was followed by various leaks, with a leaked prototype of the device surfacing online. Now, the camera specs of the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Tablet have also been leaked.
Developer Kuba Wojciechowski has unearthed the camera specifications of the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Tablet while going through Google’s code. Wojciechowski states that Google had tried to hide the names of the sensors in the code, however, he was able to match the sensor IDs with actual camera hardware with the help of multiple resources.
Pixel 7 Series Camera Specifications
The developer states that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, codenamed C10 and P10 respectively, will sport a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 primary sensor. Furthermore, the smartphones will come with a 12MP Sony IMX381 ultra-wide sensor, similar to the sensors in the Pixel 6 series. Additionally, both phones will feature an 11MP Samsung ISOCELL 3J1 selfie camera with dual pixels.

Wojciechowski adds that the Pixel 7 Pro will also have a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL GM1 telephoto sensor. To recall, the Pixel 6 Pro comes with Sony’s 48MP IMX586 sensor. This strikes as odd, considering that both sensors are roughly similar in terms of performance. The developer believes that Google may have switched to Samsung because it wants to include more sensors from the same manufacturer. He adds, “On-sensor image processing is vastly different between vendors and might lead to less consistent results, if mixed.”
Pixel Tablet Camera Specifications
Wojciechowski has also dug up some details on the new Pixel Tablet that’s set to launch this year. The developer has discovered that Google’s upcoming tablet will sport two 8MP Sony IMX355 sensors. To recall, the Pixel 6 also features an 8MP selfie camera.
Mystery Pixel Devices: Camera Specs Leaked
In addition, a new high-end Pixel device with the codename Lynx is said to be slated to arrive this year. It is said to feature a Samsung GN1 main sensor and a Sony IMX787 sensor which is speculated to be a telephoto lens. The mystery device will reportedly sport Sony’s IMX712 selfie camera sensor. Wojciechowski believes that it could be an internal device that Google is using to test new camera sensors.
That’s not the end of it. The developer spotted the Pixel P7 codenamed “Pipit” or “Passport”. It comes with a Samsung GN1 primary sensor, IMX363 telephoto lens, and an IMX386 ultra-wide sensor.
