First Photos Taken On the HTC Nexus One Leaked

Nexus-One-Camera-2Thanks to Picasa, we now have photographs taken by the Nexus One, and while these photographs let us know that the Nexus One’s camera is a pretty good quality one, it also tells us a lot about the phone itself.

For one, a quick look at the image size says the phone takes photos at a resolution of 2592 x 1944, or 5 megapixels. That’s on par with some entry level point-and-shoot cameras currently on the Market, as well as Motorola‘s Droid.
The EXIF data on the photograph also confirms two things about the phone- that the HTC name for it is indeed “Nexus One”, and that the phone (or perhaps even Android 2.1) will support GPS geotagging. The EXIF data says the photos were taken two days ago, at Google’s Santa Clara headquarters, making this a rather quick leak, and confirming the news that phones were recently given to Google employees. Knowing that the camera quality on the Nexus One is on par with the Droid, are you any more excited for it to be formally announced?

    you can geotag on android 1.6…so that is nothing new

    • santouras

      you can geotag on 1.5 as well with the Hero

        Since launch (pre-1.5) the G1 has been geotagging.

    I would love to see a model phone which is basically the G1 upgraded with all the new insides. Keep the keyboard and the rollerball, maybe slim it down a little and make the wing slide stronger. No other Android phone has these.

    The phone doesn't fill in other EXIF data, unfortunately (such as focal length, aperture, etc.) Which may be an issue for some.

    Also, what's up with the title of this post AndroidGuys? These images are hardly "leaked". Way to sensationalize.

  • Google will change everything if the phone is sold unlocked and cheap. One phone for every kid is next.
