Search engine giant Google has emphasized that future Nexus smartphones will feature "insanely great cameras."
On Google+, a discussion based on photography pertaining to the quality of DSLR cameras and image quality compared to carrying heavy pieces of equipment, saw Vic Gundotra, Google's senior vice president of engineering, stating that the firm is "committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just wait and see."
Google was recently granted a multi-flash smartphone camera patent that would see a batch of shots merging together to create the best image possible.
The company is expected to announce the Nexus 5 smartphone, in which LG isn't apparently involved as it was with its predecessor, at its I/O event (May 15 - 17). It's also purportedly preparing to debut the Motorola X smartphone at the event, which is said to be a "game changer".
(I have yet to see HTC's One in action)
Laws of optics...
Did they made a contract with Nokia for Android Smartphone with Pureview Camera???
(I remember Nokia lately said that they consider to use Android on future products.)
Ever heard of 'evidence is not proof and correlation is not proof of causation'?
Point being, just because bigger sensors and bigger quality lenses produce better images, doesn't mean we cannot pack that in a much smaller form factor.
That's what called efficiency.
Today we have a huge issue that manufacturers are packing very high megapixel cameras into smartphones and pads... however, the quality of such cameras (in terms of sensors and lens) is extremely poor.
Reason: they want to save on fictional costs (Even though we can produce extremely high quality photos/videos using very large resolutions in real time if we used superior synthetic materials which can be made in abundance).
Ever since small cameras moved beyond 2 or 3 megapixels, picture quality has degraded while file sizes have exploded. Now we have the worst of both worlds: huge files and images that are terrible unless taken under an arc light.
It's so very sad that the best point & shoot cameras you can buy today are 6 years old, and only available used on ebay.
What the Nexus needs is a sensible camera AND AN SD CARD SLOT.
Camera is good already.
