I just read about the new Google Pixel 2 and 2XL have a dual-pixel sensor, which is supposed to divide every pixel into two. This means... - Pixels are smaller (1.4μm instead of last year’s 1.55μm, which maybe allows for better quality?) - Allows for faster autofocus - Portrait Mode / Blurred Background without a second camera - Portrait Mode for objects and not just people, and can also work on the front-facing 8 megapixel camera - Google smarts allow the camera to make a depth map and use that to help it identify the foreground and background of a photo and blur out everything but the subject So given the above, how does iPhone 8/8+ stack up to this? Do the new iPhones already have small pixels and all the features that this new "dual pixel" technology provides? Is this really earth shattering for smartphones or does it not really matter?
