Google just enabled a hidden chip to make the Pixel 2’s Instagram pics even better

  Google just enabled a hidden chip to make the Pixel 2’s Instagram pics even better When the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL shipped last year, they weren't actually operating to their full potential. Google enabled the Pixel Visual Core within the default camera app with the Android 8.1 beta back in November of last year, but third-party photo apps have been kept out of the fun until now.

LG 's V 30 smartphone arrived last fall as a strong flagship with notable flaws, but we loved how much it suited the vlog life. Rumor has it that LG will announce a new model at the upcoming Mobile World Congress: The V 30 s, a largely similar phone equipped with a new AI -powered camera .

Facebook adds Elizabeth Olsen dramedy to its growing video lineup. Viacom says its streaming service will launch this year. VLC update adds Chromecast and HDR support. Version 3.0 is also available across all platforms, including iOS, Android and Apple TV.

LG's V30 smartphone arrived last fall as a strong flagship with notable flaws, but we loved how much it suited the vlog life. Rumor has it that LG will announce a new model at the upcoming Mobile World Congress: The V30s, a largely similar phone equipped with a new AI-powered camera.

Per the rumor mill (ETNewsvia Phone Radar), the V30s' AI camera would work with an "LG Lens" functionality similar to Google Lens on the Pixel 2 or Bixby Vision on Samsung's Galaxy S8. In other words, point the phone at an object and the camera will recognize it and provide on-screen context. It's unclear if that extends beyond AI recognition to the heights of assistanceship that Samsung's and Google's AI-plus-camera platforms aspire to be.

Scuttlebutt also noted that the LG V30s should offer 256GB of internal storage, the same as the hideously expensive 2 million won ($1,800) V30 Signature Edition and double the 128GB cap of the stock LG V30. The new model will also include a MicroSD slot for further expansion. Assuming Phone Radar's leaks are accurate, the V30s will go on sale in South Korea in early March after it debuts at MWC.

Apple releases iOS 11.2.6 to fix iPhone crash bug .
Apple has released iOS 11.2.6 today, which includes a bug fix for the Indian language (Telugu) character that crashes an iPhone and makes apps like Messages, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp inaccessible. Apple promised an update before iOS 11.3 and it’s arriving today in the form of iOS 11.2.6. All current betas of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS also fix the crashing problem. This is the third time in the past few months that Apple has issued iOS 11 updates to fix bugs that crash iPhones. In December, Apple took the highly unusual step of issuing a significant iOS update just hours after an iPhone crash bug started occurring.
