Google Camera NX Brings New Important Features for Nexus 5X & Nexus 6P

Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL Have a Pixel Visual Core SoC, an Image Processor Google Hasn't Activated Yet

Before the Google Pixel 2, all updates that were directed to the Google Camera NX were based on the original Pixel phones. On the other hand, Bixby identified a plaque dedicated to a Titanic victim, while Google just said, "Hmm". Xiaomi had released the Xiaomi Mi A1 handset quite recently, while Motorola introduced the Android One variant of its Moto X4 smartphone. Dieter thinks the Pixel 2 XL's screen is imperfect but can be lived with; I think it's an inexcusable disaster. 9to5Google later confirmed that the feature was "live" on their units as well.

Why is this relevant?

Google isn't billing Lens as 100% ready for primetime, so I have to cut it some slack for now.

"Google didn't take many risks in its design", he told TechNewsWorld. Sure, it's accurate, but is this helpful? It will be available in developer preview form "in the coming weeks". The Pixel Visual Core currently lies dormant within the Pixel 2. Google has now revealed that a new Android 8.1 Oreo update is coming soon. The company avoids loading the phone with bloatware or messing with the user interface just to be different. You will also notice that Nova Launcher beta runs quicker thanks to the speed improvements that were also part of this beta update. With Zero Shutter Lag, this problem is eliminated when using HDR+, allowing you to capture photos in rapid succession, even when in a fast-moving object.

Finally, Google Community Manager Orrin shared that the Pixel team has started looking into the issues. "HDR+ also begins the alignment process by choosing the sharpest single shot from the burst".

Interestingly, the Pixel Visual Core has its own DDR4 RAM and CPU. Both versions are water resistant and both come with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor.

Pixel Visual Core, the search giant's first custom-designed co-processor, is built in to every Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 smartphones. "Handing more control to the software makes the hardware simpler and more efficient".

In real-world use, however, it's hard to notice the difference.

The fact that the Pixel is unfinished shouldn't deter would-be buyers. You can buy the device at the pop-up store itself rather than going online or to a Verizon store. Both the temporary stores will be open from October 19 through December 31. Here we'll compare the two phones to explain how their features differ and which is best suited for your needs. The engineers do have a couple of suggestions as to how to maximize the impact of portrait mode, though. The basic model starts at $649 for 64 GB of storage and the XL costs $849. Speaking of headphones, Google followed Apple's lead by taking away the 3.5 mm headphone jack. You can activate the Assistant in split seconds by squeezing the phone's frame.

That relies on a TensorFlow neural network, which looks at the picture and tries to ascertain which pixels are in the foreground and which are in the background.
