What is Night Sight?
As its name suggests, Night Sight is designed to improve the quality of images taken at night or in low-light indoor surroundings. It has intelligent software and image processing algorithms working in the background to produce enhanced quality with accurate color saturation while preserving focus and details of all the elements in the photo.
If you’re into night time photography, Night Sight mode will help you produce better images via your smartphone camera. Taking pictures with the Night Sight mode enabled produces the end-result as if you have taken them in daylight. Since it has nothing to do with the physical camera lens or sensor, all magic is performed by the underlying software. This means it can be extracted as an APK file and ported to other smartphones running Android firmware.
Google has imposed an embargo on the use of its trademark Night Sight in devices from other manufacturers. Stock Android with custom UIs from Android OEMs doesn’t have this feature by default. Google blocks it if companies try to push it onto their phones. But the beauty of Android is its open-source nature which allows developers to easily port apps.
