Teasing the upcoming follow-on to the Google Nexus 4, official Google spokespeople have suggested that future Nexus phones will land with ‘insanely great cameras’.
Offering a tantalising insight into Google’s upcoming hardware offerings, the company’s head of Google+ , Vic Gundotra has suggested that future Nexus smartphones will allow users to totally replace their compact digital cameras, using the handsets as a primary camera offering.
In a Google+ posting on his dilemma of selecting which camera to take on holiday alongside his Android handset and prototype Google Glass headset, Gundotra, responding to a commentator’s question suggested future Nexus devices will feature largely improved cameras.
“We are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras,” Gundotra said. “Just you wait and see.”
With more than 1 million Google Nexus 4 handset having already sold despite continued stock shortages, Google is largely expected to follow-up its latest handset offering with a new Google Nexus 5 release, alongside the widely expected Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS at Google I/O later this year.
With many high-end smartphones currently making it to market with 13-megapixel rear-mounted cameras in tow, the largely rumoured HTC One is widely expected to buck current trends when unveiled later today and feature a 4-ultrapixel snapper.
Reportedly the next evolution of the smartphone camera market, HTC has been mooted to be forgoing the higher-number specs race in order to focus on improved pixel quality, increasing the fine detail of images to create a handset capable of shooting sharp, detailed images in lower light conditions that current models.
