Mastering low light mobile photography with Snapdragon processors

How select Qualcomm Snapdragon processors support great low-light photography: First, a fast image signal processor (ISP) is key to making sure noise reduction is performed as quickly as possible. We’ve also introduced technologies such as wavelet noise reduction (WNR) and temporal noise reduction (TNR) to identify and clean up noisy areas in photos, using our state-of-the-art algorithms and fast ISP. And Snapdragon processors use a technique called local tone mapping (LTM) to brighten areas where they need it, without compromising the exposure and detail of the photos.
