  • A Reddit user has scoured the camera bar on their Pixel phones, resulting in a brushed metal finish.
  • You shouldn’t try this at home, though, as there’s a risk of damaging the rear camera lenses.

Recent Google Pixel phones come with a distinctive rear camera housing, featuring a glossy metal finish. What if you prefer the brushed metal look? Well, a Reddit user has taken matters into their own hands, although we’d caution users against trying this at home.

Redditor the_skinny_drummer decided to take Scotch Brite pads to the glossy rear camera bar on their Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 8 Pro. This resulted in what is effectively a brushed metal finish, as you can see in the images below.
