Official Nexus 5X, 6P camera samples surface


Google has finally tackled cameras in its Nexus phones seriously.

The company brings a 12.3-megapixel main, rear-facing camera with a large sensor and larger-than-average, 1.55µm pixels that Google claims obliterate the need for optical stabilization to a large degree. On top of that large sensor is a fast, f/2.0 lens that is also wider than the average for the industry and would be the second factor in contributing to good looking low-light images.

The new Nexus cameras are also faster and come with two distinct new features: slow motion video now embedded in the stock camera app (240fps on the Nexus 6P and 120fps on the Nexus 5X) and a new burst mode that will allow you to create a GIF-like animation (also, cough, Apple Live Photos, cough).

These are all the technicalities, though - what really matters is the real-world performance of these new cameras. To show us just that, Google has posted the first official camera samples from the two new Nexus phones, take a look at them right below.
