Pixel Camera app

Samsung’s Nightography feature is way too excellent! Powerful hardware and intelligent use of artificial intelligence and deep machine learning turn low-light/night photos captured in the day. Well, Google is reportedly crafting an ultimate Night Sight solution (Multi-camera Super Res Zoom) to challenge Samsung’s Nightography.

According to 9to5Google’s findings, Google is preparing a new feature for the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro, which would combine multiple camera sensors to take even better Night Sight photos. Earlier, the Google Camera app got updated to version 8.8, which brings new codes for experimental features.

As reported, the Google Camera app’s code includes some of the first details for the Pixel 8 series. Since there are no authentic details available for now, the code indicates that the company is crafting a Pixel 8 Pro-exclusive feature for improved nighttime photography.

Google crafting Multi-camera Super Res Zoom?

In the Google Camera 8.8 APK, the “Multi-camera Super Res Zoom” feature above seems to be referred to in the code as “Hawk” and “FusionZoom.” Exclusively for the Pixel 8 Pro, the company is expanding when this special Hawk variety of Super Res Zoom can be used, enabling it for Night Sight shots.

That way, both the primary and telephoto camera sensors of the smartphone would capture the same shot over an extended period of time. Once done, Pixel’s Camera application could possibly merge the shots together to deliver improved Night Sight photos or more detailed astrophotography.

The Android maker improved Night Sight photography with the Pixel 7 Pro flagship. If you zoom in, but not far enough to switch to the telephoto lens, the Google Camera app will take your intended shot with both the main and telephoto cameras to enhance the center portion of the photo with details.

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra are unbeatable when it comes to smartphone photography. The company not only installed cutting-edge hardware but also applied futuristic software-derived techniques to make stunning night photography possible.

Samsung Chromebook AI Key

Samsung is reportedly working on a new Chromebook that will feature a special key for accessing AI features. The device, codenamed Xol, is expected to be powered by Intel’s Raptor Lake processors and have a traditional clamshell design.

According to the Chrome Unboxed, Xol will be the first Chromebook besides Google’s Pixelbook series to have an Assistant key. This suggests that Google is enhancing its AI capabilities on ChromeOS, especially with Gemini.

However, Xol is not likely to be a Google product, as Samsung developers have contributed most of the code changes for it. Xol will probably be a Samsung Chromebook, similar to the Galaxy Chromebook Go from 2021, and expected to launch this year.

The Assistant key on Xol could also be a Gemini key, as Google has been testing Gemini on some Chromebook Plus devices. Samsung and Google may be working together to bring Gemini to more ChromeOS devices, starting with Xol.

Samsung aims to launch its XR headset within this year, as it faces powerful competition from other tech giants such as Apple and Meta. Apple’s Vision Pro is seen as a game-changer in the XR market as it sold 200,000 units in less than a month, while Meta’s Quest 3 is the most popular device in terms of price and technology.

The IDC report has revealed that the Quest 3 shipments are estimated to be between 2 million and 2.7 million units in the fourth quarter of last year. Despite the high price, the industry consensus is that attitudes on the Vision Pro XR headset are changing.

The global XR headset market is expected to grow by 47% this year, reaching 11 million units, according to IDC. Along with Samsung, Sony is also preparing to launch its XR headset ‘Head Mount’ in the second half of the year.
