The Pixel 8 Pro might employ Samsung's biggest ISOCELL sensor

Ro, 24 April 2023

The Google Pixel 8 series is still a couple of months away, but according to a renowned tipster of things Samsung-related, the 8 Pro may get a big main camera upgrade.

The Pixel 7 Pro might employ Samsung's biggest ISOCELL sensor

The report says the Pixel 8 Pro will use Samsung's biggest ISOCELL GN2 sensor, which is 1/1.12-inch in size and has 50MP native resolution, 12.5MP after binning. This makes for an effective pixel size of 2.8µm. That's a big upgrade over last year's Pixel 7 Pro that rolls with a 50MP, 1/1.31-inch sensor.

It looks as if many flagship models are moving toward 1-inch sensors, so it would make perfect sense for Google to upgrade the sensor size on its flagship cameraphone too. Still, Ice Universe didn't elaborate further, so we'll have to wait a bit longer for the full details.
