Earlier this month, Essential rolled out the November security patches for the PH-1 a month after a Pure White version of the device was released. The company also added a livestream-to-Facebook feature for its Essential 360 camera around the same time and now it’s rolling out a camera update for the Essential Phone.
Weeks after releasing Nougat factory images and Oreo beta build for the Essential PH-1, Essential is bringing in some changes to the camera software of its flagship device. The update enables a Portrait Mode inside the camera as well as a reduced JPEG compression technique which improves the quality of a picture.
There’s also an additional exposure compensation for the other camera modes. Essential has revealed that the second beta rollout of Android Oreo will kick off in a week or so. The latest update to the Camera app can be downloaded installed from the Google Play Store.
