Google’s latest flagship, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, have come with tons of new features, thanks to the company’s in-house Tensor chip and Android 12. But that’s not it. The Pixel 6 series also comes with improved cameras, and the Pixel 6 Pro is Google’s first phone featuring a triple camera setup. In August, the Mountain View-based giant launched the Pixel 5a, a dual-camera phone running Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. While both the phones are among the company’s latest devices, there’s a lot of difference in their cameras and the image quality. Here’s a comparative difference in the camera zoom of Pixel 5a and the Pixel 6 Pro.
A Pixel 6 Pro user shared two images captured by the Pixel 5a in 7x zoom and the Pixel 6 Pro in 8x zoom online. While looking at the images, one can see that the image taken by the 6 Pro looks clearer with more detail. The images contain text which is more easily readable on the image shot by the Pixel 6 Pro. Considering both images were captured using zoom, the latest flagship offers a better image quality at zoom.
Why Pixel 6 Pro Zoom is Better Than Pixel 5a
The Pixel 5a comes with a dual-camera setup with a 12.2-megapixel main shooter and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide option. However, the Pixel 6 Pro takes things to another level. The high-end Google flagship offers a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and an additional 48-megapixel telephoto lens. The 48MP telephoto lens in Pixel 6 Pro is capable of up to 4x optical zoom.
It’s not just the zoom, the image quality and the photography experience on the Pixel 6 Pro are also quite good. You can check the attached Twitter thread to see the Pixel 6 Pro camera in action.
