Pixel and Pixel XL users are suing Google over the defective mic


Google Pixel 2 users will also get the enjoy the better quality of zoom-in shots as the Pixel Visual Core chip will be able to enhance the now existing picture by itself with the help of an AI system, filling in the smallest details that will result in sharper and clearer close-up photos. These means the Pixel 2 users will now be able to capture improved photographs from within these third-party camera apps. The feature will be rolled out via the February monthly update.

Well, either way, the Pixel Visual Core is used to bring HDR+ tech to third-party apps, and, as the Google Camera app in second-gen Pixel smartphones already has that, it kind of makes sense to not use the Visual Core chip. You will notice that images short particularly in low-light will be brighter and detailed without being to noisily or blurry thanks to company's HDR+ technologies. The chip has been designed in partnership with Intel, and is available on the Pixel 2 duo, though its access had so far been limited to the stock app. "Pixel Visual Core is built to do heavy-lifting image processing while using less power, which saves battery".

"In its warranty for the second generation Pixel devices, Google itself acknowledges consumers' expectations of smartphone lifespans by extending a two-year warranty". Google also promises to kick out some fresh augmented reality stickers for the Pixel camera later this week, themed around winter sports and timed to coincide with the Winter Olympic. "Like all AR stickers, these characters interact with both the camera and each other, creating a fun-filled way to enhance the moments you capture and share", Shacham added.

They still use Hexagon (QDSP) from the Google Camera app on the Pixel 2 (XL) just like the Pixel (XL) and they still have a special google_camera_app SELinux policy domain. What's also exciting is these new features are available to any app-developers can find information on Google Open Source. By using this your Instagram photography and snapchat stories will get benefit of major improvements in processing quality and efficiency Google explains the changes thusly.
