Google Pixel 6 Leak Shows Multiple Photoshop-Like Features

A new report alleges several Google Pixel 6 hardware specifications, as well as software enhancements that are very similar to Photoshop features, are coming to the soon-to-be-released device.

Back in May, known smartphone leaker Jon Prosser published a set of renders that showed a dramatically unusual camera design for what he alleged would be the Pixel 6. Three months later, Google confirmed his leak when it quietly launched a Google Pixel 6 page that shares pretty much the exact design leaked by Prosser: a horizontal camera bump that stretches across the upper portion of the rear of the device.

While Google revealed what the phone would look like, the colors it would be available in, and that it would be powered by it’s new in-house custom chip called Tensor, other specifics were not given.

While Google has officially kept details under wraps, recently published a detailed story on what it reports will be the upcoming camera features of the Google Pixel 6. It covers everything from the camera array through potential software additions that were revealed to the publication through an unreleased, internal version of the Google Camera app that was provided to it by a source.

To start with, XDA alleges that the rear camera array for the Pixel 6 will feature a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor, a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 ultra-wide, and the Pixel 6 Pro will also add a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 4x zoom telephoto lens. On the front of the camera, the Pixel 6 will allegedly use an unspecified 8-megapixel sensor while the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 sensor.

As far as software is concerned, XDA admits that many of the features that it found in the code could not be positively identified because they use code names. However, the publication says that it was still able to see quite a bit that have raised “exciting” questions about possible camera features.

One of the more interesting features could be “magic eraser,” which XDA believes could be the return of anobject removal feature from Google Photos which was thought to be long-abandoned that, supercharged with the Google Tensor Chip, may make a return in the Pixel 6. The feature was originally teased during a Google I/O keynote in 2017 but after what was shown in the above video (screen captures below), it was never heard from again.

What was promised looks a lot more impressive than the features currently available through Samsung and more recently VSCO. While such removal is possible in Adobe Photoshop, it is a fairly intensive and manual process. What Google describes is something far more approachable and automatic.

XDA also references an already-confirmed feature called Face Deblur that the company revealed in late August. Google showed a blurry photo of a toddler who was moving during the capture and a second version of the same photo but run through Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), and the child’s face was comparably sharper.

XDA found several other interesting features like a motion blur feature, a “nima aesthetic,” baby mode, the return of “frequent faces,” and more. Those interested in seeing the full slate of features uncovered by XDA are encouraged to read the publication’s full story.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro To Have Two Cameras and a 4/3-Inch Sensor: Report

DJI Mavic 3 Pro To Have Two Cameras and a 4/3-Inch Sensor: Report

A new leak suggests that not only is DJI close to releasing the Mavic 3 Pro, it also will have several eye-catching specifications: 46-minute flight time and a dual-camera system, one of which features a 4/3-inch sensor.

Drone leaker Jasper Ellens and have each independently claimed that these features are coming to the new Mavic 3 Pro and while some of the rumors have been vague over the last week, the few days have seen some much more convincing reporting. Ellens in particular has shared what appears to be the official manual and specification sheet for the Mavic 3 that specifically notes two cameras: one is a 1/2-inch 12-megapixel sensor while the other is a much larger 4/3-inch 20-megapixel sensor.

According to the leaked documents, that smaller sensor houses a telephoto zoom of 160mm (15-degree field of view) and an aperture of f/4.4. The 4/3-sensor is behind the wide-angle camera, which has a 24mm lens (84-degree field of view) and a variable aperture of f/2.8 to f/11.

If the document is legitimate, the drone will also be able to capture 5.3K video and be able to charge directly with a USB-C cable, a departure from the historical requirement to remove the batteries and use a DJI proprietary charger.

In DroneDJ’s report, the Mavic 3 Pro will be able to fly for a maximum of 46 minutes, based on optimal conditions, which is 15 minutes longer than the Mavic 2 Pro. The new Smart Controller V2, which has an integrated display, will be able to transmit real-time high-definition video up to 15 kilometers and connect to the internet via either WiFi or an LTE dongle.

The Mavic 3 Pro will also see a shift in how DJI brands its drones. Ellens claims the Mavic 3 will exclusively carry the Mavic name on launch, and there will no longer be a Mavic Mini or Mavic Air.

Ellens and DroneDJ both say that the drone is coming in November and will retail for $1,600.
