The latest Google Pixel 8 leak shows big AI camera updates

Pixel 8 camera specifications and a new promotional video for the phone have been published through artificial intelligence 91 mobile, Courtesy of Leaky Camilla Wojciechowskagiving us our first real look at how Google is integrating more AI into its flagship smartphones (via 9to5Google).

The Magic Editor, which the company said earlier this year would come to “define” Pixel phones, is like a supercharged version of the Magic Eraser. It enables you to reshape any photo you take so that it looks the way you want it to. This is shown in a demo where a person takes three photos of a family on a carousel and combines them into one shot so that everyone is smiling and looking at the camera at the same time.

The company also demos the Magic Editor by moving subjects in the photo, dragging out background objects, and replacing the midday sky with a sunset, which also changes the overall look of the photo’s lighting. This is all very similar to what Google debuted at I/O back in May. It is also good fodder for discussion about the increasingly blurred line between what is real and what is not in photography.

The video also shows off new DSLR-style manual camera controls that let you adjust the shutter speed and ISO of the image, as well as a focus slider, rather than the usual tap-to-focus fare of built-in camera apps.
