The 8 Series handsets will come with a 50 mega-pixel ISOCELL GN2. It will also offer a new feature known as Staggered HDR functionality, offering better dynamic range. Moreover, the sensor offers 24% more power efficiency and a new mechanism for autofocus, known as Dual Pixel Pro.
According to Kuba Wojciechowski, the Google Camera Go app now supports the Staggered HDR feature. This indicates that the Camera will get the upgrade, as mentioned earlier. In this feature, the long and short exposure shots are combined rather than quickly taken one after the other. This would cut the capture time. And additionally, lessen the possibility of ghosting or strobe effects when the algorithm cannot appropriately match longer and shorter exposure photos inside the same image. However, the company hasn’t confirmed or announced any details yet.
