Google Pixel 7 to support 4K selfie video, Pixel Tablet to feature a single main camera

Enrique, 29 June 2022

A new version 8.5 of the Google Camera app for Pixel smartphones has begun rolling out and 9to5Google has spotted some evidence about the Google Pixel 7 in its latest “APK Insight” post.

There’s evidence that suggests that both the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will use new front-facing camera sensors that are capable of recording 4K video. This is denoted by the camera tags found within the APK’s code “p21_front_setup” which was previously only tagged on the Pixel 6 Pro.

As of now, it isn’t known whether the Pixel 7 duo will equip the same 11.1MP sensor found in the Google Pixel 6 Pro, but 9to5Google is certain of both devices’ ability to do front-facing 4K like the Pixel 6 Pro (the Pixel 6 isn’t able to).

On to the Pixel Tablet: The code found “includes early preparations” for the tablet and there’s a sliver of evidence suggesting that the unreleased Pixel Tablet has a single rear-facing camera. It is only presumed that this Tablet would have a front-facing camera at all, but it is still too early to call it given that the Google Pixel Tablet is not expected to arrive until sometime next year.

Other things found regarding the Pixel Tablet include feature removals. The Pixel Tablet won’t have many of the camera features from the Pixel smartphones including: 4K recording at 60 fps, 4K recording (at all), Audio Zoom, Slow Motion, and Action Pan photos.

The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro were unveiled during Google I/O last month and are expected to be fully announced, along with the Google Pixel Watch, sometime this fall.

Samsung is giving this feature from galaxy note 10 plus model selfie 4k with 60fps whats the new thing in that.

You know the rest of the front facing cameras are not perfect either.(samsung ; apple ; sony) But we are talking about having or not having support for 4k selfie videos.

their 4k selfie video for 6 pro has cons in terms of dynamic range. the color looks dull depending on lighting
