Pixel 6 may be equipped with Samsung 50MP ISO CELL GN1 sensor

Based on previous leaks, we already knew that the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro could have a 50MP primary sensor. In the latest Gcam app, cstark27 has detected the string “gn1_wide_p21”. Probably a reference to Samsung’s 50MP ISO CELLGN1 sensor..

One of the key advantages of Samsung Sensors is that they can provide them. DSLR level autofocus speed.. I’ve seen phones with this sensor, like the Vivo X60 Pro +.

This is an important step from the 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor that Google has been using on Pixel smartphones for many years, but it’s unclear if this means the termination of the Sony IMX sensor in the Pixel lineup. Looking back at the company’s history, Google may be planning to stick to the Samsung sensor for a future Pixel flagship with the Google Tensor chip.

Digging into another google app, cstark27 found a reference to Samsung Exynos 5123 Modem.. According to the tweet, the modem “g5123b” refers to five devices: Oriole (Pixel 6), Raven (Pixel 6 Pro), Passport (Pixel Fold) and Slider (currently unknown).

This development will take place a few days after rumors that the Tensor chip may have changed the brand name of the Exynos 9855. You can catch up with other Pixel 6 features from the linked articles.
