Samsung hints how the Galaxy Note 8’s dual camera will work

It’s no secret that the Galaxy Note 8 will likely include dual rear cameras given all the leaks, but you don’t have to take the rumor mill’s word for it — Samsung appears to have dropped a not-so-subtle hint of its own. The company’s electromechanical division has posted a feature list for a dual camera module that lines up eerily well what’s expected from the Note 8’s rear sensors. To begin with, the second camera allows for 3X optical zoom, or a notch better than the 2X you see in the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5. If you’ve ever wanted to get a close-up shot at a concert using only your phone, this might be your handset of choice. And importantly, it’s not the only arrow in Samsung’s quiver.

There’s a depth-of-field effect, as you might guess, so it’s entirely possible that you’ll see an iPhone-style portrait mode as well as after-the-shot refocusing. However, Samsung is also promising that the module will improve image quality even in regular shots. The dual cameras enable brighter low-light shots when used in tandem, and “dual fusion” can expand the dynamic range of a photo to preserve details in highlights and shadows. There are a couple of more novelty-oriented features, too, such as a “background effect” (to blur the all but the center of a shot) and a “perspective view” (which tilts the image based on how you rotate your phone).

It’s possible that some of these software tricks won’t show up when Samsung unveils the Note 8 on August 23rd, but Samsung has a history of previewing components and features that are clearly destined for its next major smartphone. It would be more surprising these features didn’t appear. Either way, it’s likely that photography will be the Note 8’s biggest feature after its namesake pen.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
