Someone forced the Pixel 8 Pro’s special camera features to run on the Pixel 7 Pro

One of the ways the Pixel 8 Pro sets itself apart from its cheaper sibling is that it packs some special camera features into its box. However, this is something that is hard for many to digest, as both Google smartphones are powered by the Tensor G3 chip and come with seven years of software updates.

If you’re wondering if other Pixel devices might support the Pixel 8 Pro’s exclusive camera features, here’s some tea. Tipster Kamila Wojciechowska, who previously leaked several Pixel 8 features, published a series of posts on X claiming that she could implement the Pixel 8 Pro’s exclusive camera features on the Pixel 7 Pro.

The leaker said that he was able to get the Google Camera APK from the Pixel 8. He then changed it to force-enable the feature on his Pixel 7 Pro, noting that it’s “completely on every Tensor Pixel, from the 6 to the 7 Pro.”

Camilla has shown off various features of the Pixel 8 Pro camera, such as manual focus with Focus Peak, switching between lenses, changing shutter speed and ISO, and more. For reference, focus peaking is a new feature that uses highlight lines to show what’s in focus before the shot is taken. Picture

According to the information provided, the camera interface allows you to set the shutter speed up to 16 seconds without Night Sight on the Pixel 8 Pro. But his Pixel 7 Pro was only able to support a shutter speed of up to 8 seconds. He said you can control the shutter speed and ISO manually, or change one while the other remains automatic.

However, it’s not like the Pixel 8 has everything to lose. Google has added features like Zoom Enhance, improved Magic Eraser, Audio Magic Eraser, and Best Take, which will be coming to the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro on October 12.
