The prowess of the Google Pixel's snapper is no mystery, with the Mountain View company touting it as the "best smartphone camera ever." To prove that claim, it uploaded a couple of photos that showcase the handset's shooting capability.
Spreading the word with "#NoFilter needed," Google's camera head Isaac Reynolds took the photo collection that range from landscapes to bowls of fruit and people, highlighting how the Pixel can capture clear stills, even if the subject is moving or in low-light conditions.
The fun doesn't end there either, as there's an alleged 4K video that's said to have been shot using the Google Pixel XL. If that turns out to be true, then the smartphone will more or less redefine the competition on this front.
Official Photo Samples From Google
To start things off, Reynolds posted the images on Google Photos, and to make things better, they're all up for download.
Here's a quick peek at what's in store:
As mentioned earlier, there are no filters needed to take great shots with the handset.
It's also worth mentioning that the Pixel set a new record for getting the highest marks that DxOMark has ever doled out, scoring 89 points.
That puts it above the HTC 10, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the Sony Xperia X Performance, the previous top-performing handsets in this department that clocked in at a score of 88.
Alleged 4K Video Taken With The Google Pixel XL
More than the official photo samples, there's also a purported 4K video taken with the Pixel XL making rounds online, courtesy of YouTube user Ron8it.
Now, the smartphone in question is advertised as being capable of taking 4K footage at 30 fps, and for the record, it can also take 1080p at 120 fps and 720p at 240 fps.
Put simply, this clip could be an early look at what the Pixel can bring to the table.
Google Pixel Camera Specs And Other Components Under The Hood
As a little refresher of the Pixel's camera, the rear sports a 12.3-megapixel sensor and a f/2.0 aperture. Meanwhile, the front side is loaded with an 8-megapixel shooter with an f/2.4 aperture.
To cover the rest of the details, the Pixel rocks a 5-inch FHD AMOLED touch-screen and a 2,770 mAh battery. On the other hand, the larger sibling Pixel XL dons a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display and a bigger 3,450 cell.
Powering the two is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 paired with 4 GB worth of RAM. Also, they are available in storage configurations of 32 GB and 128 GB.
Availability-wise, they're up for preorder at Verizon, and customers who get in on the action before Oct. 19 will get a free Daydream View VR headset. It should also be pointed out that the Big Red is offering a trade-in promo that let subscribers save up to $300 if they hand over their older phones.
