Google Hides a Custom Built Image Processor in the Pixel 2. They Call it Pixel Visual Core

Google Hides a Custom Built Image Processor in the Pixel 2. They Call it Pixel Visual Core

By Canon Rumors | October 17, 2017 | Industry News

Today Google announced something they omitted from the October 4th announcements of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Apparently both smartphones come equipped with a purpose built image processor that is currently waiting for software updates from Google to activate the processor. Google also plans to open up the processor to third party camera apps.

Google calls this processor the Pixel Visual Core.

From the Verge:

it is Google’s first custom system-on-a-chip (SOC) for consumer products. You can think of it as a very scaled-down and simplified, purpose-built version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, Samsung’s Exynos, or Apple’s A series chips. The purpose in this case? Accelerating the HDR+ camera magic that makes Pixel photos so uniquely superior to everything else on the mobile market. Google plans to use the Pixel Visual Core to make image processing on its smartphones much smoother and faster, but not only that, the Mountain View also plans to use it to open up HDR+ to third-party camera apps.

I love cool surprises and this definitely qualifies as a good one.

Google Pixel 2 Sample Image Gallery

Google Pixel 2 Sample Image Gallery

By Canon Rumors | October 17, 2017 | Industry News

DPReview has posted a sample gallery of real world images from the Google Pixel 2, keep in mind that the Pixel 2 XL has the same internal camera components. I mostly wanted to see how the portrait mode worked, and on a couple of images, I think it does a nice job. It looks like it won’t be the most reliable feature, but hopefully software updates will improve the feature over time.

Noise performance looks to be what one would expect with such a small sensor and color rendition is going to be hit or miss for people, as that generally comes down to personal preference.
