This marks the eleventh of the series of adoptions of a Morpho product by LG, which began with the incorporation of “Morpho HDR™” into LG G2 launched in 2013. Morpho’s excellent technology in image processing continues to support the qualitative improvements of LG products.
Generally, smartphone cameras have a narrow dynamic range for representing the light-dark difference, which may cause so-called “blown out highlights” or “blocked up shadows”. “Morpho WDR” (https://www.morphoinc.com/en/technology/wdr), an embedded software program for dynamic range correction, can correct a dynamic range of colors by estimating it from a single image and applying local tone mapping with the use of Morpho’s unique technology.
