According to the latest report, the third Google Pixel 7 series phone seems to be under development with a 64MP telephoto camera. However there’s no official word on the camera hardware, but developers explored into Google’s code to uncover more details about the Pixel 7 series and Pixel tablet.
Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro leaked Camera hardware
Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones could have the main 50-megapixel Isocell GN1 sensor and the ultra-wide 12-megapixel IMX381 sensor found on the Pixel 6 smartphones. However, it looks like the Pixel 7 smartphone is using the same 11-megapixel selfie camera (Samsung 3J1). This marks a change from the standard Pixel 6, which used an 8-megapixel sensor, while the Pixel 6 Pro has an 11-megapixel sensor.
This tipster, furthermore revealed that Google try to experiment with the Pixel 7 Pro, as the company may not use 48 MP Sony IMX586 Sensor. Instead, a 48MP Samsung GM 1 telephoto sensor might be applied. The reason behind this change can be the “sensor image processing vastly varies between vendors and may lead to less consistent results, if mixed”.
First of all – Pixel 7 (Pro) – C10/P10:
Both devices use the same GN1 primary sensor and IMX381 UW as before. The front camera is now the same on both – Samsung's 3J1 – a 11MP sensor with dual pixel, which should improve the quality and allow for semi-secure face authentication.

On the other hand, the developers suggest also revealed that the Pixel tablet might feature two 8MP Sony IMX355 Sensors. However, the Lynx phone is said to feature a 50MP Isocell GN1 camera and an IMX787 sensor for the secondary rear camera. The IMX787 is a 64-megapixel sensor that was recently spotted on the ZTE Axon40 Ultra. Otherwise, the 13-megapixel IMX712 sensor is said to process selfies.
Finally, the developers have revealed the camera details for future foldable cameras (rumored Pipit or Passport devices). It has 50MP GN1, 12MP IMX363, and 12MP IMX386 cameras. On the other hand, the front camera is the familiar 8MP IMX355 sensor. However, it is not clear whether the device will have an on-screen selfie camera or not.
