The software, which is slated for a December launch, can be tested currently by Android Beta Program users. It is also available for download with an unlocked bootloader.
Reports suggest that the new version will lead to the activation of the hidden Pixel Visual Core system-on-a-chip. Although the image processor is built into both the new Pixel phones, it remains dormant.
However, it is expected to be activated in the coming months to make image processing smoother, and also make HDR+ available to third-party developers. (ANI)
