Ultra HDR will soon be rolling out to those Beta testing Android 14
While Google’s Ultra HDR announcement covers only jpeg images, there is nothing that stops Apple from implementing the same technology on the iPhone’s HEIC format. Ultra HDR
will be rolling out soon to Android 14 Beta testers.
While the Android 14 Beta program has been a buggy mess, the recent release of Android 14 Beta 2 has been a huge step forward but next month we expect the Beta program to enter into platform stability. This means that internal and external APIs have been finalized and app-facing behavior has also been finalized. At platform stability, most developers are concentrating on “compatibility testing and quality.”
