For years, photography has been one of the key pillars of the iPhone experience, although little by little the differences have been shortening. However, there are some advantages that Apple's mobile still maintains over Android. And one of them will finally begin to reach our phones.
The importance of DCI-P3 color space as an added value of the iPhone
The color space is one of the differential factors why many users prefer the iPhone to take pictures. A color space defines the range of colors that a screen is capable of emitting. Similarly, if a camera works in a wider color space, it can offer us images with colors closer to reality.
From the iPhone 7, Apple products use the DCI-P3 color space, a color space that Apple chose for being the one used in the film industry. This space offers better fidelity than the sRGB, the standard space that Android uses.
Google is working hard on the DCI-P3 standard to reach Android, and with the Android 9 Pie version they created a series of tools for developers to work in the famous DCI-P3 color space. But it seems that this movement will not be there.
As we can read in XDA Developers, one of the latest versions of Google's own camera already finds code that allows the camera to capture images in said standard, being possible to test it in Pixel 3, mobile than in the analysis of the screen they made in XDA would seem to be prepared for this new standard.
This addition would raise the bar of the Google Pixel 4 camera even more. Given the success of its predecessors in the field of photography, this terminal bears the responsibility of being one of the best exponents in mobile photography.
Finally, it is important to mention that Google's mobile would not be the first Android mobile that uses the standard. Mobile phones like the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom They have already begun to integrate this color space into Android.
