Google Pixel 7 key camera upgrade just tipped


According to a Google Pixel 7 leak, the selfie camera could be upgraded to 4K.

There may have been a Google Pixel 7 camera upgrade for the base model in one of Google’s own apps. And for those looking to avoid paying for professional services, this could be fantastic news.



The latest Google Camera app update has references to 4K selfie video recording being available for both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, according to Google(opens in new tab). Prior to now, this was only a Pixel 6 Pro feature, but the code expressly refers to both forthcoming versions.

The code does not give any information on the hardware, but the ability to support 4K video could suggest that the Pixel 6’s 8MP selfie camera sensor could be replaced with the 11.1MP one from the Pro variant, or at least with one with a higher resolution. However, we haven’t heard of any rumors in that direction.

Contrarily, it appears that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s cameras won’t differ from those of their predecessors from a year ago. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro should yet experience some tuning, which might help them maintain their position on our list of the best camera phones.


For customers looking to save money, having high-resolution front camera video on the less expensive Pixel 7 model would be fantastic. Users who want to purchase the Pro model can find it a little irritating since they share a feature with regular users as well.

A new Google Tensor chip, rumored to be called the Tensor 2, as well as this software-based improvement to the Pixel 7’s front camera should power the device.

Other Pixel 7 adjustments might include a size reduction from 6.4 inches to 6.3 inches and a potential increase in display brightness for the Pixel 7 Pro. Additionally, as we observed at Google I/O, the rear camera bar’s appearance has changed, with new glass covers over the lenses emphasizing the smartphone’s camera technology.


According to last year, the Pixel 7 will debut in October, so Google will complete the specifications at that time. For the most recent information, visit our Google Pixel 7 hub.
