Google Rolls Out Night Sight Tech to Improve Quality of Low-Light Photos

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature a rear camera that labelled as the "best on a smartphone right now" in our review of the flagships. At the event, Google promised that the feature would trickle down to the older Pixel and Pixel 2 phones in November. Sadly, Night Sight has remained unavailable for reviewers to test for themselves.

Tech reviewer Marques Brownlee has been testing Night Sight. But in a odd way, the biggest winners of all this may be Pixel 1 and Pixel 2 owners, who will also be getting Night Sight over the next few days. Even without Night Sight, the Pixel family of phones-like the Nexus 5X and 6P before them-already excel in low-light photography.

After you select the "Call Screen", Google Assistant will take over the call and introduces itself to the person on the other side and questions him/her about the objective of the call.

Night Sight is a new feature on the 2018 Pixel phones that improves low light performance. "All you need to do is press the shutter button". Though Google may end up having to play a game of cat & mouse, as ROM hackers have been able to modify imaging applications to get it working on third-party phones as well. Check out the sample shots on Google's blog for some great examples of why.

Google has partnered with B2X, a customer care service provider, to provide doorstep after sales services for Pixel devices in India. Night Sight leverages on Google's AI knowhow and combines it with the Pixel's HDR+ processing algorithms to boost the colours and brightness of photos that were taken in the dark.

Apple has the most popular camera in the world on the iPhone, while Google has what is generally regarded as the best camera on a smartphone. This is all the more impressive when you consider Night Sight is backwards-compatible with the company's smartphones dating back to 2016.
