A new function indicates a sensor change in the camera.
Staggered HDR is said to be present in both of the upcoming Pixel 8 smartphones. Since the Pixel 7 series’ current camera sensor is unable to perform this function, Pixel 8 smartphones will likely require additional hardware upgrades.
After that, the slightly more recent Samsung GN2 sensor, which is also 50 MP, could be installed. The Pixel 7 smartphones currently feature the GN1 sensor.
With the new feature, the same pixel can simultaneously record multiple exposures. Not at all like ordinary HDR, this is conceivable with essentially less postponement.
Additionally, Kuba W. was able to confirm that Google is relying once more on the Pro label. The Pixel 8 Pro is likely to be the best smartphone of 2023, regardless of the Plus, Ultra, or anything else.
As the current primary camera sensor on the Pixel 7 series – Samsung GN1 – doesn’t support staggered HDR, it could mean we’re in for an upgrade. An example sensor that could be used that supports the feature is Samsung’s GN2: https://t.co/Km2ziFpo0P

Lastly, for the first time, Google switched the camera’s main sensor with the Pixel 6. The Samsung GN1 sensor, which used to be a 12 MP sensor, was changed for the Pixel 5, and it is no longer part of the most recent generation.
