Qualcomm?s Clear Sight technology is an image processing solution built into high-end Snapdragon processors. It was first introduced with the Snapdragon 820 and 821. The Clear Sight imaging process takes two different camera sensors taking images at the same time. These two images are then amalgamated and processed to improve focusing, clarity, and contrast. As a result, the images come out clearer, sharper, and with better low light quality.
The Qualcomm Clear Sight technology is also built into the upcoming Snapdragon 835. That being said, having the functionality may introduce new features for the rumored Samsung Galaxy S8.
In fact, a recent Twitter post from Qualcomm further hints the Clear Sight technology on the Snapdragon 835. In the said tweet, Qualcomm will be introducing the new chip during next year?s CES in Las Vegas. The post also make further references to the idea that the Snapdragon 835 will be best used in mobile photography.
