Google uses AI to enhance the shooting experience of Pixel 6 series smartphones

Google’s Pixel 6 has great software and hardware capabilities. Addition of AI-driven automation tools. It is reported that both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are equipped with 50MP @ f/1.85 main camera + 12MP @ f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle (114°) lens. In addition, Pixel 6 Pro has a 48MP telephoto lens, supplemented by optical image stabilization + Laser-assisted autofocus. In addition, through the smart blur, object removal, and skin tone exposure adjustment, photos taken by mobile phones can be more eye-catching.

In terms of enhancements, smart face deblurring is obviously very practical. However, judging from the official demo sample, if only the face of a person in a blurred photo is sharpened, it is still a bit strange to look closely.

In addition, Pixel 6 supports two “motion modes”, one of which is the “Action Pan” that helps to clearly capture moving objects such as passing cars while “creatively” blurring the background.

The other is the “Long Exposure Assistant” that can keep the background clear while blurring the moving subject, which helps to operate without a tripod.

Then there is the “Magic Eraser” that can experience the AI ​​effect most. If an uninvited guest breaks into a photo you took (such as a car or a person), Pixel 6 can erase and restore the natural scenery very well.

Click on the tool, the software will automatically highlight the content you may want to exclude (such as pedestrians, cars in the distance), and then refer to examples or other random features to optimize.

Interestingly, Pixel 6 also provides a “Speech Enhancement” function. When switching to the front selfie camera, you can choose to let the device reduce ambient noise and focus on recording your own voice (similar to Krisp).

As for the “Real Tone” (Real Tone) function, Google’s official description is that it works with many professional image makers and photographers to adjust the camera’s automatic white balance (AWB), automatic exposure (AE) and stray light algorithms to Ensure that the camera and the images it captures can meet the practical and practical needs of people of all skin tones.

It starts with Google’s custom-developed Tensor chip. The 5nm SoC has an octa-core processor with two whole Cortex-X1 powerful cores – the first phone with more than one. There are also two mid-level cores as well as four power-efficient ones. The custom image processor takes computational photography on the Pixel 6 phones to a new level.

The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro feature Live Translate, which can translate messages, captions, or text in the camera viewfinder in up to 55 languages. Using Tensor, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro can act as an Interpreter in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, or Spanish, fully offline.
