Smartphone cameras are widely used all over the world as they are easier to access and capture the moment more steadily. In the course of all these years of developments in smartphones, their cameras are still not that perfect. One of the issues that the majority faces is the adjustment of white balance. There are many applications available that could fix the matter, but we still prefer a system solution to make our pictures look perfect. We have seen all types of problem solutions during CES 2023, including the latest feature of a multispectral image sensor that is aimed to fix the issue for great reasons.
White balance is the process of making our images cooler or warmer, as these settings can affect a human’s skin tone, the natural colors of water, and the indoor lighting of a room. RealTone was introduced by Google on Pixel devices to resolve this issue in general when dealing with darker skin tones. According to information from The Verge, the latest image sensor, S1, works with the visible spectrum of light and works beyond it, dealing with the near-infrared range.
The S1 sensor can also work in collaboration with any image sensor and aims to improve white balance as a result. Conventional image sensors work by collecting visible light and converting it into pixels, including various shades of red, blue, and green, and creating multiple shades of colour using these. It was claimed that S1 could capture perfect colours and would capture most natural colours even if light was low.
As stated by Jonathan Borremans, S1 proves to be a breakthrough in the world of technology. In the current weak announcement, it was claimed that the company has used spectral signature data that will make your images more natural. The company was confident in the results of Spectrum and is claiming its presence on every device.
Furthermore, spectricity CEO Vincent Mourent stated that the new feature will be available at a low cost and will be available in 2024.He believes that in the future, this spectrum technology feature will be included in every smartphone.For now, the company is selling evaluation kits to OEMs that are selling them on a massive scale.
This feature is so exciting that it’s hard to wait for its launch. Meanwhile, you could try out some applications that provide the best editing experience. Although they are not perfect for capturing your images, after capture, some minute changes could make a huge difference.
