Version 8.5 of the Google Camera app, the most recent update, has fresh information regarding the photography and videography capabilities of the Pixel 7 and the Pixel tablet due next year. Some crucial findings have surfaced as a result of 9to5Google’s APK breakdown.
Pixel 7 Selfie Camera
There aren’t many differences between the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro since Google Camera is just now starting to incorporate the code for these devices. Given that the Pixel 7 series appears to be an update of last year’s phones, the camera experience shouldn’t alter significantly. The front-facing camera sensor on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro should be able to shoot in 4K, according to information unearthed by the report.

In contrast, the Pixel 6 series allowed 4K video to be recorded through the selfie camera only on the Pixel 6 Pro. The $599 Pixel 6 could only record in FHD since it had a separate, lower-resolution selfie camera. It’s probable that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro could share the same front-facing camera sensor as the Pixel 6 Pro since the Pixel 7 should allow 4K selfie filming, but it’s still unclear which sensor is being used.
The report also found the “p21 front setup” tag in Google Camera, which was previously reserved for the Pixel 6 Pro. This suggests that both the Pixel 7 and the 7 Pro might be using the same sensor which is found on the Pixel 6 Pro. The new Google camera build also gave some hints on the camera performance of the upcoming Pixel tablet. For starters, there is no mention of 4K recording under the Pixel tablet, which could indicate that the tablet might not be able to shoot any 4K video from either its front or rear camera. The Google Camera apk also hints at the Pixel tablet losing some more critical camera features.
