If there’s one thing Google Pixel phones are synonymous with, it’s that the company knows how to improve the photography experience. Pick up an old device like the discontinued Pixel 3 and take it for a photography spin, and you’ll realize that the camera system on this phone is still as good as some modern flagship phones. With that said, today we have some news about the Google Pixel 8; The one that should become official sometime next year, and as Google finds out, we’ll be hearing more and more details.
Google Pixel 8 will have an upgraded camera sensor with interlaced HDR support
Unfortunately, it is not an official word but it is based on a reliable leakageSo, we have some information about the primary camera that the Google Pixel 8 will bring to the table.
The best thing about the upcoming Google Pixel 8 is that the camera will support HDR technology called staggered HDR. For those who don’t know, interlaced HDR is not a software-based technology, the image sensor needs to support that, and these sensors can output long, medium, and short exposures separately.

This means that scaled-down HDR should deliver better-looking images than Google HDR+. This means that the sensor will also be upgraded. At the time of writing, some Samsung sensors, including the Samsung ISOCELL GN2, support interlaced HDR, but we’ll likely see a newer sensor since the GN2 has been out for some time.
Sadly, it’s all speculation until Google started teasing the upcoming Pixel 8 series, and knowing the company, that day wouldn’t be too far away for any of us in the first place.
Apart from the amazing HDR, the upcoming Pixel 8 series should bring several other improvements. Basic for the screen, chipset and battery. Tell us what you’d like to see in upcoming Google flagships.
