Pixel 9 Pro camera specs revealed by Camera FV5, no surprises

Google Pixel 8 pro AM AH 14

The Pixel 9 Pro may feature the same 50MP primary rear camera as the Pixel 8 Pro. The upcoming Google flagship was recently spotted in the Camera FV5 database, spilling beans on its camera specs. It appears to be an unchanged sensor from last year. The specs of the other three cameras are still missing. The phone launches on August 13.

Pixel 9 Pro certified with a 50MP main camera

Spotted by 91Mobiles, the Camera FV5 listing for the Pixel 9 Pro mentioned a 12.5MP resolution (4080×3072 pixels) for the main camera. It appears to be a 50MP sensor using 2×2 pixel binning to merge four neighboring pixels and produce 12.5MP photos by default. Most 50MP cameras do that, including the Pixel 8 Pro‘s primary shooter.

Other leaked specs also suggest it’s an unchanged sensor. The camera has an f/1.7 aperture, a 25.4mm (25mm) focal length, and 2.4µm pixels when applying pixel binning. By default, it should boast 1.2µm pixels. The certification listing further reveals that the camera has a horizontal field-of-view (FoV) of 70.7 degrees and a vertical FoV of 56.2 degrees. It boasts electronic and optical image stabilization (EIS+OIS) and supports auto and manual focusing.

Google Pixel 9 Pro camera specs leak

These specs tell us Google didn’t change the main camera on the Pixel 9 Pro. If you recall, the Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro also have a 50MP sensor with the same optical footprint of 1/1.31 inches as the Pixel 8 Pro. However, the 2023 model has a larger aperture (f/1.7 instead of f/1.9). This allows more light to reach the camera sensor, producing brighter photos. It’s unclear if Google has changed anything at the hardware level this year. We shall find out soon.

The new Pixels are coming soon than usual

Google’s past three generations of Pixel flagships debuted in October. However, the company is launching the 2024 lineup two months earlier. It has already announced that the Pixel 9 series will go official on August 13. We are also getting a third model this year. Alongside the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro, Google is readying the Pixel 9 Pro XL.

All three models will feature the Samsung-made Tensor G4 chipset with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB (hopefully) UFS 4.0 storage. We are expecting industry-leading displays manufactured by Samsung using M14 OLED materials. Google is also upgrading the lineup to an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Older models have an optical sensor. Leaks about the Pixel 9 series should continue to come thick and fast in the build-up to next month’s launch.
