Pixel 7: Google wants to catch up with Samsung

After the Pixel 6, everything at Google revolves around the successor. A new patent suggests what the group could do with the Pixel 7. There is at least one area where you want to compete with Samsung.

Pixel 7: Google secures camera patent

With the Pixel 6 and the Pro version, which is even better equipped in terms of camera, Google has presented two very interesting phones. In one area, however, the company relies on technology that is almost traditional : the selfie camera is clearly recognizable as such and is noticeable in the Pixel 6 (Pro) in the form of a punch-hole camera. With the successor, however, Google could rely on a different concept.

According to a new patent that Google has just secured, they would like to use an invisible front camera (source: LetsGoDigital). Just like Samsung did with the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Pixel 7 could also use a sub-display camera. According to the patent, Google is even considering installing a double selfie camera with additional sensors.
