Google photos transfer

When upgrading my phone and transferring information from the old android phone to the new android phone, does google photos upload all pictures, again, to the cloud? They have been uploaded from the old phone and are visible on other devices, but was curious if it does an upload again and copy over the originals?

Google photo is cloud storage, no it is not physically on your device. You would have to download individual photos to the device if required.
