Soon Google Camera will come with wide-color support, possibly with Google Pixel 4. Smartphone Cameras are getting better and better every year,and Android is seemingly at the forefront of image quality for our portable everyday-carry handsets. However, all Android-powered Smartphone cameras are lacking one important aspects, and that is their images, color range. While many argue that the cameras on the latest Android flagships capture more visually-pleasing shots than the latest iPhones', one advantage that apple has is their ability to capture a wider range of colors than any other Android phone. But the upcoming Pixel may change this thing.

The difference is quite subtle in the comparison, but the flowers captured in P3 appear more true-to-life with higher color contrast between the petals and its shadows. The difference is more apparent the more colorful the scene is — a verdant garden, one much more flourishing than mine, will appear more radiant. The next step is for Android to adopt prolific support for showing these wide-color images with color management support. Right now, Samsung’s Gallery app is the only relevant Android app that color manages photos; no social media platforms on Android can properly display any of the wide-color photos shared by Apple users. Google Photos is also set on implementing color management, containing support for it for the past year, but Google has been rolling it in and out sporadically to a select few users.

With cstark27’s finding and Google’s announcement of wide color photography, we presume that Google is finally beginning to ramp up support for wide color and that they will most likely make a big deal about it when presenting the radical new cameras on the Google Pixel 4 later this year.
