Google Camera Go update brings Night Mode photography to low-end phones

Google introduced Camera Go earlier this year as part of an effort to bring high-end photography to low-end devices. The app provides access to Google's AI-powered photography tricks while keeping the requirements for storage space and processing power at a minimum. Portrait mode was the main launch feature for Camera Go, and now it looks like another highly requested capability is coming: a dedicated Night Mode for shooting in low light.

Pixel 4 leaks bring fresh pics, new camera details: up to 8x zoom, new 'Motion Mode' for action shots, and improved Night Sight

There's no stopping the Pixel 4 leaks as we get closer to the phone's anticipated launch. The latest details, spotted by the folks at XDA Developers, show off a Pixel 4 with an "8x" element on the camera's UI — presumably indicating the telephoto lens might be able to reach up to an 8x zoom level compared to the primary camera (though we don't know how much of that could be digital zoom). 9to5Google is also reporting a new "Motion Mode" for capturing fast-paced action, and even better low-light performance via a souped-up Night Sight. Previous rumors that the phone would pack an "upgrade" to 6GB of RAM were also corroborated, and we get to see a new white color.

Google Camera loses Smart Burst on Pixel 3 in favor of Top Shot

At some point, Google decided to take on Apple's status as the unchampioned camera master in the smartphone world, and for quite the large part, it's succeeded. During the era of the Nexus 6P, the company lay the foundation of that work, introducing new camera features like Smart Burst, slow-motion video, and more. But now Google is reconsidering some of those early features, and a new Camera update drops Smart Burst in favor of Top Shot on the Pixel 3 and 3XL.

A build of Android Q beta 5 leaked yesterday with a new sensitivity setting for the back gesture, and hidden within it is a new version of Google Camera 6.3. The current stable build we all have is v6.2, so 6.3 is still an unreleased update and could change in the future before it reaches the public. But it does give us a glimpse into what Google is working on with its Camera app.

Samsung is working on a Night Sight clone called Bright Night

Samsung's Pie-based One UI will come with a plethora of changes like a night mode interface, and buttons shifted toward the bottom of the display. According to a new report from XDA, it'll also come with a new camera mode called "Bright Night." You can probably guess what that is—it's Samsung's version of Google's almost magical Night Sight feature on the Pixels. Will it be as magical? We just don't know yet.

Pixel Night Sight also works in daylight, reducing noise and boosting resolution

Turns out that Google's new Night Sight mode for Pixels, formally released just earlier today, has some non-night utility. In a bit of a twist, you can use it in the daytime as well for "denoising and resolution improvements" inherited from another Google Camera feature: Super Res Zoom. The results demonstrated look pretty good, so long as you're willing to hold your Pixel steady.
