A new leak for the The Pixel 7’s front-facing camera has just surfaced. In the code of version 8.5 of Google’s Camera app, the people of 9to5Google discovered that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s front-facing shooters may be able to shoot videos in 4K.
This is nothing new for the Pro model as last year’s Pixel 6 Pro can already shoot 4K videos. However, this is good news and a major upgrade for the regular Pixel phone. The Pixel 6 can only shoot FHD (1080p) and has an 8MP front camera. In comparison, the Pixel 6 Pro has an 11.1MP front snapper.
It is currently unknown whether both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have the same front-facing camera. Since both phones may be capable of recording in 4K, Google may have decided to use the same sensor in both future handsets. There’s also a slim chance that Big G has decided to reuse the same front snapper found in the Pixel 6 Pro in the upcoming Pixel 7 series. These are just speculations though, so take them with a grain of salt at this point. Also, the folks at 9to5Google have found another secret buried in the code of Google’s Camera app. At its Google I/O, the tech giant hinted that it’s working on a Pixel tablet, and it appears that Big G has begun prepping its Camera app for this upcoming device.
First of all, the camera on the Pixel tablet may not support 4K recording at all. Furthermore, it seems that the Camera app on the tablet will have fewer features than on the Pixel phones. Some of these missing options can be Audio Zoom, Slow Motion videos, and Action Pan photos. Keep in mind, though, that we’re still a long way from the release of Google’s first tablet and things may change over time.
