According to Android Authority, screenshots of the new Google Camera UI were shared, which is likely to be introduced with the upcoming Pixel 8 lineup this fall. Google last revamped its Pixel design in 2019, so it’s interesting to see what it has planned.

In the Photo mode, there is a clear separation from the Video mode. You can select whether to take a still or record a video at the bottom of the app. A carousel will appear where you can choose the corresponding mode. Until recently, all modes were mixed in the Rolodex.

There is now a shortcut to the Gallery instead of the button switch between the front-facing camera and the ones on the back. For Pixel users, it will take some time to get used to, but it’s now in line with most Android camera apps from other manufacturers.

When using the larger Pro model, you can’t reach the additional settings menu after swiping up from the bottom of the viewfinder. Last but not least, Google has rearranged some of the camera modes and regrouped others. It’s possible that Google intends to encourage users to experiment with some of the modes, such as Long Exposure and Action Pan.

Furthermore, Google is working on a new feature called Staggered HDR, which aims to speed up the capture process and minimize artifacts. By shortening the time between frames, it achieves efficiency. Dynamically adjust the flash intensity with the Adaptive Torch feature. To make the image more realistic, Segmentation AWB applies varying processing to different areas of it.
