As noted by Android Central, Google’s Senior Vice President of Engineering Vic Gundotra yesterday made some comments about the quality of cameras in upcoming Nexus devices. While Google’s Nexus lineup has never been known for having the best cameras, Vic promised in the comments of a photography-related Google+ post that Google is committed to making improvements to the cameras in future Nexus phones.
Gundotra’s original post questioned if he should bring his DSLR in addition to his Android phone and Google Glass on an upcoming vacation. When asked by a commenter whether a future Nexus could replace a DSLR, Gundotra responded:
Best iPhone, iPad, & Apple TV game controllers
We are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just you wait and see.
It isn’t exactly all that surprising that Google would aim to improve camera specs on new Nexus devices, but hopefully Vic’s enthusiasm and “just you wait and see” comment hints at major camera upgrades in upcoming Google hardware.
