Google Pixel 2's Portrait Mode now works on some non-Google phones

Google Pixel 2's Portrait Mode now works on some non-Google phones

Amazon India, offering a almost 50% discount, has listed the first-generation Google Pixel XL (128GB) for Rs. 39,990, slashing its price by Rs. 36,010. The Pixel 2 camera experience is largely an iterative improvement over the first generation Pixel, though it adds some polish with features such as Motion Photos, Face Retouching, and lastly Portrait Mode.

At the time of writing, Amazon's Pixel XL discount is applicable on the Quite Black variant of the Pixel XL 128GB.

Google Pixel 2 Portrait mode is one of the most notable features that makes the new Pixel 2 series best in the smartphone arena. For instance, the bigger Google Pixel 2 XL with 64GB storage is now priced at Rs 67,999 on Flipkart, which is the authorized online seller. The smartphone is now available for Rs 39,990, down from the original price of Rs 76,000. Google Pixel 2 64GB model was available for Rs 42,000, down from the original price of Rs 61,000. The phone comes with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage.

Google today released the first security patch for its Pixel and Nexus devices for 2018. Currently, the Google Pixel 2 is listed there at Rs 49,999. It comes with 12.3MP f/2.0 primary camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Therefore, since the very beginning, the company has gone on to focus on image quality in its smartphones i.e. Pixel 2 line-up. Based on Google Camera 5.1.016, this APK enables Pixel Detector (PD) data in the camera.experiment2017 library, which is responsible for activating Portrait Mode in the Pixel 2 range. On the inside, there is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset with 2 cores clocked at 2.15GHz and 2 cores clocked at 1.6GHz.

Keep in mind a few caveats. The rear camera can record 4K videos and it also supports slow-motion recording up to 240fps at a resolution of 720p.
