Here’s Google’s Brian Rakowski describing the feature:
“Anyone who’s tried to take a photo at a concert knows that phone cameras take terrible zoom. Instead of shooting a grainy photo, Pixel 3 shoots a burst of photos, each a bit different, taking advantage of the natural tiny movements of your hand. We run the variations through a merging algorithm to create a beautiful zoomed-in shot.
“This technique of merging slightly different photos for higher resolution has been used in advanced astronomy research to image the surface of Mars. Pixel 3 puts this technology into a device you can hold in your hand.”
So basically, Google is using the same technique astronomers use to map out planetary surfaces, but for your smartphone, so you can get better zoomed-in photos. How cool is that? Amazingly cool is the correct answer.
