Google Pixel 6 camera information has been leaked, and the flagship is said to come with several improvements in terms of image signal processor (ISP) and video recording, as per a tipster. Unlike last year, Google is expected to launch two smartphones -- vanilla Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro -- in the Pixel 6 flagship series this year. Past reports have already claimed that both the phones will have a multi camera setup, and the Pro variant will come equipped with three rear cameras.

A tipster who goes by the name Tron has claimed in a tweet that the “Pixel 6” smartphone will have several improvements in the camera department overall. Without explicitly mentioning whether they are talking about the vanilla Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, the tipster says that the “Pixel 6” will offer Gimbal-like steady cam mode, which we have already seen in multiple smartphones by Vivo, as well as in the LG Wing.

Furthermore, the tipster says that the Pixel 6 will have a “bigger Samsung sensor, Google custom NPU (neural processing unit) and ISP” which will perform better than last year's Pixel 5 smartphone. Tron also claims that the smartphone by Google will also bring along “big improvements” in the video department. Google has been praised for its point-and-shoot, portrait, as well as Night Sight photography, but has lagged behind the competition in terms of video performance.

It is to be noted that Google Pixel 6 series of smartphones is said to be powered by its own ‘GS101' silicon, which is codenamed Whitechapel, and has been developed with the help of Samsung. Having a Samsung smartphone camera sensor is speculated to provide better hardware-software optimisation, something that we have already seen on past Pixel smartphones.

Renders leaked earlier indicate the Google Pixel 6 will feature two rear cameras and Google Pixel 6 Pro will have a triple rear camera setup, including a periscope lens. A report also shows colour combination similarity between the Google Pixel 6 smartphones and Pixel Watch.
