Pixel 7 series: Guided frame to remove blur, details of Google’s camera upgrades

The Pixel 7 series is now available for purchase in India on the Flipkart e-commerce platform. Announced earlier this month, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are priced at Rs 59,999 and Rs 84,999, respectively. The phones were initially available for pre-order in India with limited time cashback offers of Rs 6,000 on the Pixel 7 and Rs 8,500 on the Pixel 7 Pro. Additionally, Flipkart offered some discounted Google products on pre-orders. As the pre-order offers are now over, Flipkart is now offering instant cashback of up to Rs 15,000 to SBI card customers. Pricing and deal details aside, here are the details of the camera upgrades brought by the Pixel 7 series:




your real



Google says the Pixel 7 series captures photos with accurate skin tones. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro cameras are tuned based on information gathered from a dataset of 10,000 diverse portraits to make it inclusive.




Guided frame



Accessibility feature, the Selfie Guide Frame is for people who are blind or visually impaired. It helps users find the perfect angle for a selfie by guiding them with audio cues and haptic feedback.




Unblur photos



New to Google Photos, the Photo Unblur feature is exclusive to the Pixel 7 series. It allows users to remove blur from blurry images using the Google Photos service. Importantly, it even works with photos clicked on a different camera.




Night vision



With Tensor G2, the Pixel 7 series not only shoots night shots faster, but also with better clarity and detail. Google says its machine-learning algorithms reduce unwanted motion blur in low-light conditions, producing low-light images with the same clarity.




Cinematic blur



It uses technology similar to portrait mode to blur the background of videos to keep the audience’s attention on the subject. Additionally, 10-bit HDR video is supported in the Pixel 7 series.




Super resolution zoom



Super Resolution Zoom is available on both Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. It crops images from the main 50MP sensor to create 12.5MP photos with 2x zoom. Google says the clicked image at 2x zoom is similar to what a 2x telephoto lens would capture, with low noise and high resolution.




Optical zoom



On the Pixel 7 Pro, the new 48-megapixel telephoto lens kicks in with 5x zoom, and Super Res Zoom creates 12-megapixel photos at 10x, which look like a 10x optical zoom camera. At 15x and beyond, users can take clear photos with zoom stabilization. At 20x, the Google Tensor G2 powers new machine learning that increases photo resolution, allowing photos to be zoomed up to 30x on Pixel 7 Pro.




Macro focus



Limited to the Pixel 7 Pro, the macro focus feature uses the ultra-wide-angle lens to capture close-ups (subject as close as 3cm).
