Pixel & Pixel XL Owners Have Sued Google for Their Ongoing Mic Defects
- Calvin Franklin
Speaking of a closer look, fix outfit iFixit tore down the Pixel 2, and it revealed the Pixel Visual Core under the hood for all to see, which Intel had a hand in its development, for the record. A large part of what makes the cameras on the Pixel work is the use of Google's terrific AI and machine learning software so much so that the flagships are able to capture great bokesh without needing a dual camera setup as the general trend int he industry.
The Pixel Visual Core is a chip that sports a total of eight cores dedicated to process images with more efficiency when using HDR+, a step above the more common HDR.
At time of publication, Google had yet to issue a public statement regarding the lawsuit but we'll be sure to update this page if they do.
However it seems a recent bug introduced into Google Play Services broke the functionality, rendering the button again useless. Perhaps the plan all along was to include the co-processor to have an efficient way for third-party apps to keep up. And, it was enabled only after the Android 8.1 Oreo update was rolled out in December past year. The simple answer is "optimization". HDR+ technology has always been available to users when they take photos from Pixel's native camera app. Other apps can't do what Google Camera does right now. The chip has been designed in partnership with Intel, and is available on the Pixel 2 duo, though its access had so far been limited to the stock app. "Pixel Visual Core is built to do heavy-lifting image processing while using less power, which saves battery".
"Despite its clear awareness of the Pixel defects, Google failed to disclose them or their associated problems to consumers prior to purchase and failed to provide an adequate remedy to consumers when the defects manifested", the complaint alleges.
Following the launch of the Android 8.1 Oreo update in the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the search engine giant has enabled a previously inactive feature inside the premium handsets. So basically Google is extending its photo processing capabilities to popular photography, social media, and camera apps as well.

Three ways to avoid these exploits include resetting the TV to factory settings and not agree to the collection of viewing data. The actual act of changing the settings is easy, he adds, but most consumers never bother with fiddling with menu changes.
U.S. airstrike repels attack by Syrian regime-backed troops
It's not the first time USA -led forces in the country primarily to hunt ISIS have targeted pro-Assad forces in self-defense. Last year, US aircraft shot down a Syrian jet after pro-government forces attacked USA allied units in northern Syria.
