Google recently launched their new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, both handsets come with Android 8.0 Oreo. Google has now revealed that a new Android 8.1 Oreo update is coming soon.
The news of the new Android 8.1 Oreo update was revealed by Google yesterday when they revealed information about their Pixel Visual Core. The Pixel Visual Core is a system-on-chip that is inside their new Pixel 2 handsets.
The Pixel Visual Core is not enabled in the handsets as yet. Google has said that this will be enabled when they release the Android 8.1 Oreo update.
In the coming weeks, we’ll enable Pixel Visual Core as a developer option in the developer preview of Android Oreo 8.1 (MR1). Later, we’ll enable it for all third-party apps using the Android Camera API, giving them access to the Pixel 2’s HDR+ technology. We can’t wait to see the beautiful HDR+ photography that you already get through your Pixel 2 camera become available in your favorite photography apps.
You can find out more details over at Google at the link below, the update will apparently land some time in the next few weeks.
