At the moment, flagship smartphones are more expensive than ever. It seems that maybe handset makers are aware of this and are hoping to compensate for it by creating more value for money handsets, Google included, where next week the company is expected to officially launch the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
For those who haven’t been following the rumors, the Pixel 3a smartphones have been rumored to be more affordable alternatives to the Pixel 3. With the reduction in price, certain compromises have to be made, but it seems that if there is one thing Google might not be compromising on, it would be its camera software.
In a recent teaser image shared by Google, the tagline accompanying the image reads, “Losing sight after twilight?” It might seem a bit innocuous, but it has been speculated that this could mean that Google could be bringing Night Sight to its Pixel 3a smartphones. The feature made its debut on the Pixel 3 where through the use of AI, it allowed the Pixel 3 smartphones to capture some pretty stunning images even in low-light conditions.
Given that it’s a software feature, it’s not surprising that Google would include it with the Pixel 3a, but as we said, with the handset compromising on certain features, it’s good to know that Night Sight will not be one of them. The results of Night Sight on the Pixel 3a could potentially yield different results compared to the Pixel 3, since the lens and processor on the phone will be different, but how different remains to be seen.
