So the camera captures beautiful and spontaneous images. The device equipped with Clip stand which you can hook it anywhere like a shirt, trouser, chair, baby stroller etc.
In addition, Google Clips intelligent AI-based algorithms smart enough to recognize familiar faces so that it captures more photos of them and fewer clips of other persons. There’s also a shutter button both on the camera and in the Google Clips app to capture different shots manually. It sports a 12-megapixel shooter with F2.4 aperture, 130-degree wide-angle lens and it captures @15FPS. The camera lens also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The device comes with 16GB of internal storage and syncs wirelessly with Google Clips app for Android or iOS. And if you’re using Google Photos, you’ll also get free unlimited original-quality storage for photos and clips.
