Essential Camera update adds AutoHDR mode and new HDR algorithm
This isn't the first nor the last update the Essential Camera app gets, but it's definitely an important one since it brings a couple of new major features. Firstly, the update adds an AutoHDR mode and a new HDR algorithm that should improve performance, capture speed, and scene rendering.
These alone would make this update extremely important for Essential Phone users, but there's more. Essential confirmed the update includes a new feature that allows Dynamic HDR and Flash indicators to highlight icons when HDR or flash is used in auto mode.
Finally, various stability fixes have been implemented as well. In order to benefit from the latest improvements, make sure to download the latest version of Essential's Camera app via Google Play Store.
