We already knew that the Pixel 6 Professional options higher decision within the selfie snapper particularly, over the bottom Pixel 6 mannequin.

For reference, “raven” is the code title that Google has given to the Pixel 6 Professional, whereas the Pixel 6 is code-named “oriole.”
Whereas the above line of code hardly means something to most common smartphone customers, the programmers over at XDA had been capable of extrapolate from it (together with another traces of code) that the Pixel 6 Professional mannequin is ready to characteristic an ultra-wide angle entrance digital camera lens—a privilege which the bottom Pixel 6 mannequin won’t take pleasure in, sadly.
The one different Google telephones which have beforehand featured an ultra-wide-angle selfie snapper had been the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL.

The utmost zoom degree for 4K at 60fps (and 1080p at 60fps) might be 7X (the Pixel 5 was restricted to 5X, for reference). Moreover, the Pixel 6 will enable customers to easily swap between the entire obtainable lenses whereas taking pictures in 4K at 30fps, with out pausing or breaking apart the video stream.
Picture zooming maxes out at 20X, moreover, in response to the report based mostly off of the just lately deciphered code.
