Qualcomm today announced new camera technology that it says will help generate better photos on devices with the Snapdragon 820 and 821 processors.

Qualcomm’s Clear Sight relies on two imaging sensors to imitate the cones and rods within the human eye. One sensor captures color images and the other captures black and white images. Qualcomm says its Spectra ISP is able to take the data from both sensors and merge it into a single image.

The black and white sensor, in particular, has had the color filter removed entirely, allowing it to capture three times more light. Qualcomm says this dramatically improves low-light imaging, resulting in photos with more contrast, improved sharpness, and less grain.

Clear Sight is a single hardware module that contains two cameras and Qualcomm’s low-light imaging algorithms that enable the Spectra ISP to take and merge photos instantly.

Qualcomm says the Clear Sight module is available to hardware manufacturers.
