Pixel 8 Pro will bring a new 55MP Sony IMX675 Sensor for ultra wide lens, 0.48x zoom ratio. The Pro model also retains the 48 MP Samsung GM5 telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom. The Pixel 8 Pro will get a new 8×8 sensor time-of-flight (ToF) VL50L8 sensor, which should help improve autofocus performance.

In camera software, the Pixel 8 series will get a new Adaptive Torch feature that automatically adjusts the intensity of the LED flash to prevent low-light shots and overexposed videos.
