Pixel 2 Has A Hidden Image Processor Called The Pixel Visual Core

Google's Pixel 2 has a secret chip which will make your photos better

Google's design philosophy won praise from Dieter Bohn, however, in his review for The Verge.

Another unique feature of the Pixel 2 phones is the Google lens, a sort of visual search engine. Google deliberately gave the phones' metal body a textured finish that makes them easier to grip.

Capturing everything from a dusky, low-light sky to a sunny beach trip, the HDR+ algorithm has been evolving over the years in terms of intelligent processing.

Look at that New York Times icon in the image above. Of course, that's a limiting factor, but Google thought up of a workaround of sorts by throwing in a custom-designed coprocessor in the mix.

Then there's the matter of the color accuracy and saturation of the 2 XL.

Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. Google trained it on "almost a million picture of people (and their hats, sunglasses, and ice cream cones)" the researchers write.

Google has also improved its Bluetooth connectivity. Then select "Wallpaper" and choose from a list of default options and your own saved images.

Next, our technology needs to decide which pixels belong to the foreground of the image (a person, or your dog) and which belong to the background. With competing smartphones offering similar specifications on paper, with a bump in RAM and default storage, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL still make for the best Android phones to buy this year. The photos provided by Ars illustrate this well, showing an inconsistent, "dirty" white where it should be simply uniform; this grittiness becomes even more apparent when you scroll. The phone does come with a dongle to use legacy headphones and speakers but dongles are annoying and - if you lose it - it costs $20 to replace.

When locked, the phone continually listens for songs and automatically identifies the name and artist.

"But I'm a fan of the Pixel 2", she added.

First off, it's nearly impossible to find.

What's most fascinating about Google's new Pixel 2 phone is what's to come.

After that, it will be unlocked for third-party apps, for example, Instagram, via Android's built-in Camera API. Nova Launcher has been in beta for a while, so the newest beta update is 5.5 Beta 3. The engineers do have a couple of suggestions as to how to maximize the impact of portrait mode, though. The Pixel Visual Core could very well be the first step to Google taking on Qualcomm. Google Pixel 2 phones have a dormant PVC chip as Google has yet to activate the feature through the software update.

"My whole Pixel experience comes down to this: It has the fewest flaws of any Android phone on the market", he wrote.
