Google Release Pixel Pics To Back Up ‘Greatest Smartphone Camera’ Claim

Update: The 4K sample video in this article has been removed on suspicion of it being a fake. The announcement last week of Google’s Pixel phone only served to increase the hype around the highly-anticipated device.

More than anything else it was Google’s claim that the phone possessed the greatest smartphone camera currently available on the market that generated such high levels of excitement.

The validity of this statement was essentially backed up solely by a rating of 89 bestowed upon the Pixel by DxOMark; the highest score ever given to a smartphone by the site. However, numbers really mean nothing without seeing the camera in action.

Now, Google has already released a selection of images demonstrating how the Pixel stacks up against other mobile shooters, and the results seem impressive.

These images were shared in a Google Photos album entitled “#Nofilter needed with your new Pixel” by the Pixel’s camera lead Isaac Reynolds. If you’re thinking these pretty pics are the result of chicanery, such as using another camera, you’d be wrong. The EXIF data shows that these images were indeed taken on a Pixel and Pixel XL. However, analysis does show that a handful of the images were edited using apps like VSCO and Snapseed, making the ‘#nofilter’ claim a little dubious.

We will only be able to totally vindicate Google’s opinion of their new toy when we get our hands on a Pixel ourselves. In the meantime however we are happy to say that this bodes very well for Android users looking for a high performance cam in their next mobile purchase.
