Apple has acquired UK based startup, Spectral Edge limited. Spectral Edge limited has previously developed technology, which blends infrared shots with standard photos to produce crisper images in proper colours. Profile of the startup with details of the technology says that the tech can be embedded into software or in silicon. It can possibly enhance low light images and improving grainy footage. Apple can possibly integrate this technology into its AI for photography, making pictures clicked by its devices look even better than before.
Spectral edge uses machine learning AI to improve pictures clicked via smartphone. Apple has added new features to the iPhone, with the iPhone 11 pro having a triple rear camera setup. It is possible that future iPhones will have improved depth-sensing technology.
Spectral Edge’s new technology improves the quality of low-light environment pictures. A technology which can be applied through chip or software to a mobile device. This could work hand in hand with Apple’s custom processors that help get a clear picture of good quality.
Apple recently tied up with Samsung display to produce OLED screens for their upcoming phones of 5.4-inch and 6.7inch in 2020. This comes at a time when LG too will be supplying film touch method-based OLED panels for Apple’s 6.1-inch displays along with Samsung. The phones slated to be released in 2020 are under a lot of speculation, because of their thinner displays and now because of the technology from spectral edge, which may or may not be integrated into the devices releasing in 2020. Rumour also has it that one of these phones that will be released will have 5G compatibility.
The phones releasing in 2020 by Apple are expected to be of the iPhone 12 series-iPhone 12, iPhone 12+, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
