Google Pixel 3's camera AI functions get detailed ahead of launch
That couldn't be more true, as 9to5google has the scoop on the Pixel 3's camera AI functions. Images that detail how the phone's camera achieves supposedly impressive results when taking pictures and even a video offer a more thorough look at what's to come.
The Pixel 3 camera features several AI functions like Top Shot, Photobooth, Super res zoom, Subject tracking AF, and Wide angle selfies. The first one, Top Shot allows users to capture a burst of frames by pressing the shutter. Then, the AI will choose the best photos taking into consideration various things like smiles, open eyes, and if subjects are looking at the camera.
Photobooth will help Pixel 3 users to take better selfies and helps them choose the best image they capture. It can also be used to automatically take a picture when you positioned the phone on a flat surface. When Photobooth is enabled, the phone will take photos when subjects are smiling, make a funny face, or wink, but it will also look for the best shots and allow users to choose from them.
Next in line, Super res zoom acts “pretty much like AI-zoom,” just to quote a person familiar with Google's plans. Sadly, this is all we know about this specific AI feature, so let's just leave it at that for now.
Wide angle front camera is meant to capture more in a standard selfie. It was originally leaked as Super Selfies, but it looks like Google had a change of heart and decided to go with another name.
Last but not least, Subject tracking auto focus is a Pixel 3-exclusive feature. Basically, the auto focus will track subjects in view after framing an image instead of letting users manually tap to focus.
