A powerful camera that catches more light

The best all-round camera that we've ever put into a Nexus shines in low-light conditions. Its larger 1.55μm pixels capture more light, even in the dimmest conditions, to produce stunning details and sharp images. With a faster Google Camera app, you'll never miss a moment, and with the smart Google Photos app, your memories are easy to relive and always at your fingertips.

Pixel Size

Capturing light is a bit like catching rain in a bucket; the bigger the bucket, the more rain you're going to catch. For a camera, those "buckets" are the pixel size. And the Nexus camera has big buckets! 1.55μm-sized pixels are among the largest of any smartphone camera, on Android or otherwise.



The Nexus Camera's lens with f/2.0 aperture lets more light in and captures sharp images in stunning detail.
