Code found in the latest version of a Play Store app reveals a couple of new video-related features for the Pixel 8

Video Unblur would allow the AI and Machine Learning capabilities of the Tensor 3 chip to fix blurry segments on a video stored in the Google Photos app. The Tensor 3 is believed to be a modified Exynos 2300 chipset which makes sense considering that the first-gen Google Tensor chip was a modified Exynos 2100 SoC, and the currently employed Tensor 2 is a modified Exynos 2200 chipset.
While 9to5Google was able to “forcibly enable” the UI for Video Unblur, the feature currently doesn’t work. But that’s to be expected at this stage, especially if the feature will be exclusive to the Pixel 8 series. Also discovered were some new editing effects that can be added to videos. When editing a video, a tab called Overlay will appear that when tapped will offer 14 effects that can be used. These are:
- After School
- Rainbow Rays
- RGB Pulse
- Super 8

There is a chance that we could learn more about the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro during the Google I/O 2023 developer conference which will be held May 10th. There are already rumors that the mid-range Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold will both be officially introduced during the event with an eye toward an early third quarter release. Google is also supposed to release the Pixel Tablet this year as the Pixel ecosystem continues to expand.
