The camera for the GN1 uses the same 50MP sensor in its Pixel 6 and Pixel 7, so Google can take it to the next level for the Pixel 8 (Pro). This aging sensor could be replaced with a second-generation sensor that would improve the quality of the image.
Google Pixel 8 (Pro) and Pixel Tab Pro could be equipped with Samsungs ISOCELL GN2 sensor Said camera sensor will enable shots with step HDR Pixel 8 (Pro) is expected to launch in October 2023.
Clues were found in the code for the Googles Camera Go app by leaker Kuba Wojciechowski. Google is reportedly testing a remote HDR mode in the next version of the app. Since only Samsungs ISOCELL GN2 currently uses this technology, it’s obvious that this is the sensor that Google wants.
Pixel 8 (Pro): A new 50 MP lens that will catch up with the competition.
This benchmark confirms that two of Google’s Google devices, called Husky and Shiba, are likely the next Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The code mentions a device called the Pixel Tangor Pro which would be the Pro-Motive TB. This tablet could also be equipped with the new sensor.
The smartphone with the HDR mode takes three images with a different exposure level. On paper the result image should have better dynamic range and higher contrast compared to standard shots.

Out of the hardware, Google could use its software optimizations to improve image quality. For reference, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a Samsung ISOCELL GN2 which convinced us by the tests with wide sharp and fast shots. However, I should wait a little more time so we can see what the effect is on a Pixel.
How do you think that this sensor will be integrated with the Pixel 8 (Pro)? Do you think this will improve the quality of the Pixel 8 (Pro) a huge time?
