Android Q will support wide color gamut photos

Android Q

According to Google developers, Android Q will come with wide color gamut feature which is expected to make photos look more realistic. Android has now ushered in a new round of image innovation. Since each sRGB color channel has only 8 bits, the standard sRGB color gamut cannot fully reflect the advantages of the latest technology of the screen and camera. Android has been working hard to achieve end-to-end support for wide color gamut images.

This means that users can finally capture the rich colors of the real scene, watch and share the wide gamut picture with friends on the phone. The two images above are the Display P3 and sRGB versions of the same photo. If you view this message from a display that supports wide color gamut, you will notice a significant difference between the two.

The screen and camera sensors of mobile devices are being updated every year. More new models will be equipped with calibration display panels, some of which will also provide wide color gamut support. Modern camera sensors capture colors outside the sRGB range and then generate wide gamut images. The dual upgrade of the screen and sensor will give the user an end-to-end photography experience, allowing them to capture the real world in more vivid colors.

Technically, this means that the image that the application needs to process is different. The ICC profile embedded in the image will no longer use the sRGB color space, but instead, use other richer formats such as Display P3 and Adobe RGB. For consumers, the wide color gamut can make photos look more realistic. Android Q will definitely support Display P3, Adobe RGB, and other formats. Of course, developers must update their applications.
