As revealed in a huge leak of marketing material from Carphone Warehouse, as well as older leaks, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro both look like coming with an arsenal full of photo tricks that will let them take some of the best smartphone shots ever.
The Google Pixel 6 rumours keep pouring, and the most recent ones indicate that the upcoming Pixel will be a great camera phone in particular.
In fact some of the rumored features have impressed us so much, we’re already worried for the fate of the iPhone 13, a phone that’s been around for mere weeks and probably wasn’t expecting competition like this so soon.
Both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are tipped to be using a 50MP main camera, which could enable them to take far more detailed images than even the iPhone 13 Pro Max is capable of capturing.
Google and Apple have been two of the only smartphone makers to stick with 12MP main sensors as cameras with resolutions of 48MP and higher became the norm — but according to the rumors, that’s about to change.
Cameras are not purely defined by their megapixels, though: sensor size, tuning and post-processing all play a role in the overall quality of the final photo.
Given that Google already showed it could take on the best camera phones in the world with older Pixel models, that bodes well for the Pixel 6 range. With a new, much more substantial camera, these phones could well be the ones to beat in future.
