The rumor was confirmed by a string of code in Google’s new Digital camera app, which arrived with the Android 12 Beta 4.
The code mentions ‘p21’, which refers back to the upcoming Pixel 6 sequence, hooked up to a ‘gn1_wide’, which could be very simple to decipher.
The GN1 sensor, which Samsung unveiled final Might, has 1.2μm-sized pixels earlier than binning. Combining them 4-to-1 turns the 50 million 1.2μm pixels to 12.5 million 2.4μm-sized pixels.
The sensor was used within the vivo X60 Professional+ and should not be confused with GN2 sensor within the Mi 11 Extremely, which has barely bigger 1.4μm pre-binned pixels and a couple of.8µm binned ones.
