    A few weeks ago, Google unveiled the Pixel 7 lineup, which will go on sale later this year. The internet services giant used Samsung's ISOCELL sensors in the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. With its upcoming high-end phones, it will use even more ISOCELL sensors.

    According to the code dug up from GitHub by developer Kuba Wojciechowski, the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro use the ISOCELL GN1 50MP camera sensor for the primary camera. It is a 1.31-inch sensor with 1.2µm pixels, dual-pixel autofocus, and 4K 60fps video recording. For the ultrawide sensor, Google is sticking to the Sony IMX381 sensor, which has a resolution of 12 megapixels and 1.2µm pixels.

    For the telephoto camera, the Pixel 7 Pro has switched from Sony IMX576 to the ISOCELL GM1 sensor, which has a 48MP resolution and 1/2-inch size. It features phase-detection autofocus, 4K video recording, and Full HD video recording at up to 120fps. Both phones appear to use the ISOCELL 3J1 11MP (1/3-inch) selfie camera with 1.22µm pixels, dual-pixel autofocus, and 4K video recording.

    Interestingly, there appears to be a third Pixel device codenamed Lynx. It features the same Samsung ISOCELL GN1 primary camera but uses a Sony IMX787 telephoto camera and an IMX712 13MP front-facing camera. This device could also be just a test bed for testing various camera sensors.

    It is also being reported that the Pixel foldable smartphone is being tested internally. It appears to feature the ISOCELL GN1 primary camera. It has a Sony IMX386 ultrawide sensor and a Sony IMX363 telephoto camera. The foldable Pixel device has the IMX355 11MP selfie camera on the front. The device will compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
