Essential is on the verge of shipping its first flagship PH-1 smartphone in few weeks. And now the company’s imaging expert Yazhu Ling has published a blog post with a title ‘Getting everything in tune for the perfect picture.’ which explains the behind-the-scenes process through which the company engineered Essential PH-1 dual rear cameras set up to snap detailed images in low-light condition.
Ling also posted several camera samples captured by the Essential PH-1 dual rear camera set up, which displays the difference between raw, unprocessed data and final output processed through ISP and dual camera fusion. The expert adds that the company development team has been involved nearly for 7 months in tuning the ISP (Image Signal Processing) with camera modules to get best possible output image (especially the low light images).
Further, Ling said: “Our subjective tuning process began in January 2017, and during that time, we have gone through 15 major tuning iterations, along with countless smaller tuning patches and bug fixes. We have captured and reviewed more than 20,000 pictures and videos, and are adding more of them to our database every day,”
Notably, the handset sports a 5.7-inches QHD LTPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB RAM, dual 13 MP rear camera (RGB+Monochrome) with F/1.8 aperture, and 3040mAh battery with Fast charging via USB. Further, the device also equipped with 128GB UFS 2.1 of internal storage, 8MP front shooter, and Bluetooth: 5.0 LE.
