  • Sony IMX sensor on Google Pixel phone:

Furthermore, the report also confirms that the upcoming Google Pixel phone will feature dual-rear camera setup. Here, the 12.2-megapixel primary camera will come with Sony IMX363 sensor on the Google Pixel 6a. To recall, the same camera sensor is present in every Pixel smartphone starting from Pixel 3 to Pixel 5a 5G. The upcoming Pixel phone will also get a selfie camera of 8-megapixel with Sony IMX355 sensor.

Moreover, it is highly likely that the upcoming phone will also borrow some of the flagship features from the Google Pixel 6. These features may include Google Assistant voice typing, Live HDR, on-device translation and may more. If this is correct, it will buck the trend that the Pixel A-series has been following by far. Until now, starting from the Pixel 3a, all Pixel A-series phones have used the camera sensor from their respective flagship series. Google’s photographic prowess is achieved by compensating with features like Super Res Zoom and machine intelligence.
