Re: XZ2 Features for XZ1 Family?

I have the xz premium... Since it's the same sensor, is the 4k hdr recording software based?  Also, I'd like th. 4K to be a separate app again. I used to use it as a shortcut on thr home screen so I can switch between 1080p and 4K on the fly but now it's not so easy.  Don't know why everyone complained about it.  I like having an easy way to select 60fps or 4k30

4k hdr recording is only supported in snapdragon 835. So, there is no way that it would come to xz premium.

Snapdragon 845 actually, 835 is what we have and the last year flagship SoC

Re: XZ2 Features for XZ1 Family?

Then there is 1080p super slow motion and the sensor is probably the same. This should work on xzp xz1 xz1c.

 

And no word was said that it will be delivered into xzp. Could it be?

 

As i am using old huawei p9 i am still catching that xzp has a better sensor, but it doesnt have portrait mode, while an old p9 has a good one, we still do not have a bit of control over video recording, p9 lets you adjust really a lot, we do have rather boring camera app an p9 has a great one. S9 has a move detection in ssm 960, xzp has got none. And probably its android 8 update will be its last one except for security patches. That makes this phone boring and getting old and old and old

Re: XZ2 Features for XZ1 Family?

what are you talking about, 835 is able to do as much work as 845 and BTW, devs on xda already ported XZ2 camera to XZP. 4K HDR and 1080p slowmotion are working... It's up to SONY to bring those features officially and polish them good...

ps. new bionz algorithms works fine and bring XZ2 quality of photo to table!

The most important update for the XZ1 I want is the new BIONZ algorithm from the XZ2, finally Sony proves they can compete with the best phones on market!

Unfortunately I don't belive Sony do this. Got snap camera app to close crappy photos issue, especially in low light mode (with camera 2api enabled).

Re: XZ2 Features for XZ1 Family?

At least they could bring RAW to us... This is unbelievable that Sony, as a camera manufacturer specialist, don't allow RAW photos on their smartphones...! Crying Face
