Pixel phones are known for its mobile photography. Where other phones couldn’t do with three or even four sensors, Google had been doing it with one and doing very good at it.

The main sensor is 12MP wide angle, while the second sensor is 16MP telephoto sensor.
Google is also bringing many new features to their cameras. One of which is Live HDR+. This feature will allow users to see a more accurate representation of what the resulting image will look like. This tool will also add brightness and shadow slider to tweak their shots as needed. Another feature Google tweaked this year is the portrait mode. With the addition of another lens, Pixel phones will be able to capture portrait photos more accurately giving proper separation between the subject and the background. Next up is the Night Sight. This feature is awesome. This feature takes 15 shots at once and blends them together to make one photo, one very good bright photo.
