Google Camera app version 8.5 for Pixel smartphones has started rolling out.
The Google Pixel 7 series was teased at the Google I / O Keynote event, and expectations for the device have been rising ever since. Currently, the new version 8.5 of the Google Camera app for Pixel smartphones is reported to propose photography and video shooting specifications for future Google Pixel 7 series phones and Pixel tablets. The front camera sensor of both Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones is said to be able to record 4K video. If that turns out to be true, it’s a major upgrade from the previous Google Pixel 6 series phone. The
development was first discovered by 9to5google while investigating Google Camera 8.5, a new version of Google’s camera app for Pixel smartphones. According to the report, Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro can record 4K video with the front camera. Currently, users can only capture 4K video from their selfie camera on the Pixel 6 Pro, but the Pixel 6 doesn’t have this feature. According to the camera app’s APK decomposition, the code “p21_front_setup” suggests this feature. This tag was previously reserved for the Pixel 6 Pro. The
Google Camera 8.5 is also said to include some initial preparations for the Pixel tablet. Google’s upcoming Pixel tablets may have a lens on the back of the device. Future tablets may run out of 4K video recording at 60 frames per second. Also, it may not support 4K video recording. According to the report, Google may remove audio zoom, slow motion video, and action pan features from Pixel tablets to keep costs down.
The company hasn’t yet reviewed the camera specifications for Google Pixel 7 series or Pixel branded tablets, so this information needs a little understanding.
As mentioned earlier, the Google Pixel 7 Series was teased at the Google I / O Keynote Event in May this year. It works on Android 13 as it is, and it has been confirmed that it will be equipped with the next generation Tensor SoC. In addition to the Pixel series, the company also announced that it is working on Android tablets. It will be available in 2023. The tablet is also equipped with Tensor SoC.
