Google Pixel's Camera Can Work On Other Android Smartphones
Google Pixel bears a standard as one of the best smartphones in terms of camera quality. The device is popularized because of its awesome HDR+ camera, a new feature that deals with images differently from other smartphone camera implementations. Interestingly, an app developer from Ukraine has found a way to port the Google Pixel's camera software to other Android phones.
Regular HDR cameras work exactly as it does on most cameras. In the regular HDR Camera, multiple images are taken at various exposure settings and then stitched together to form an image with greater dynamic range and thus, better image quality is produced. However, the HDR+ mode introduced in the Pixel took things even further as it starts capturing images at the rate of 15 - 30 images per second and produce an image with lesser blur and more in-depth colors.
The developer's technique lets the Google Pixel's camera software to run the Pixel's camera software on other devices running the Snapdragon 820, 821 and the Snapdragon 835. The software also permits users to use the Pixel's always on HDR+ quality to take photos, without needing a Google Pixel, according to TechSourceINT.
The app developer who created the technology goes by the name of B-S-G, has posted a modified version of the Google Camera app, allowing HDR+ image processing on android smartphones supporting the three processors mentioned above.
The app was tested by XDA member Adam Conway, who thas mentioned a variety of devices he tested on. This includes devices like the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8. The developers apparently found references to Muskie Pixel XL2, a rumored version of the Pixel that has been heard about earlier.
It should be noted that the software in the Google Pixel is specifically tailored for the camera hardware in the smartphone. This isn't going to give the perfect Pixel camera, but it looks more or less like it.
