The release of the new generation of Pixel smartphones is still far away, but the first data about the cameras of new products has appeared on the Web.
Insider Cuba Wojciechowski claims that Pixel 8 will receive a camera with support for Staggered HDR mode (multi-frame, or stepped, HDR mode). The bottom line is that the sensor is able to take several pictures at the same time with different exposures, using different parts of the sensor itself.
This mode cannot be added to any smartphone, as it requires hardware support from the sensor. For example, Samsung GN1, which is used in Pixel 7, does not support this mode. And this means that the new generation of Pixel smartphones will change the sensor again.
Cuba Wojciechowski was the first to point out that Xiaomi will switch to using JLQ platforms. In addition, he was the first to discover information about the reconfigured Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
