Upfront, the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 shooter, and the Pixel 6 will have an 8-megapixel shooter.
The report cites a line in the Google Camera app code to hint that the Pixel 6 Pro's front camera may have an ultra-wide-angle lens. The XDA developers quote their source as saying that the Pixel 6 Pro's selfie camera offers two preset zoom levels: 0.7x and 1.0x.

There is also a "Scene Lock" feature that the XDA developer report talks about. According to the report, this feature could be similar to the AF / AE lock present in the Google Camera app. The XDA report also hints at a feature called "Magic Eraser" on Pixel 6 smartphones. There aren't many details on the feature, but it is speculated to be a post-production feature. It can be similar to the object removal feature in Google Photos and can help users remove objects from pictures they have taken with their phones.
The report also talks about several other less quirky features like Motion Blur, timer light (LED torch flashes to indicate self-timer seconds), a baby mode, Frequent Faces V2, and a portrait spotlight feature, among other tips. on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Cameras. The report sheds light on how Google plans to further enhance the camera capabilities of the Pixel series, continuing Pixel's reputation for having one of the best smartphone cameras.
