Google has released a preview of Android 8.1 Oreo and now we know some of the most exciting new features. As you can expect, Android 8.1 Oreo is a partial upgrade that is based on some of the new features of the main version.

The most exciting news is that Google gives access to its Pixel Visual Image Processing Core. Android 8.1 adds the new Neural Networks API (NNAPI), which “provides applications with hardware acceleration” for various smartphone operations.

While Pixel Visual Core is still not active, the NNAPI will allow developers to begin building Pixel Visual Core functionality in their applications for the final version of Android 8.1, which will allow using the HDR+ out of the Google’s camera app.

Other changes are purely aesthetic in the Quick Settings panel. The Beta Program issues these updates over the air, although the developer preview is only compatible with the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL, devices and can be download from the Google site.
