These two companies are also the best-known smartphone manufacturers Google partnered up with thus far. "The great thing is that as we port more machine learning and imaging applications to use Pixel Visual Core, Pixel 2 will continuously improve", the company wrote in a blog post. Since HDR involves multiple images, faster hardware is necessary in order to keep HDR from slowing down the performance of the smartphone.

"There have been a few times when I wish the company had risked a little more razzamatazz, but mostly I've been appreciating the focus on improving the basics". The engineers do have a couple of suggestions as to how to maximize the impact of portrait mode, though. 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.
