a Android 13 At the beginning of February, and since then, some details of the new operating system from Google for smartphones began to be known. One of the features now revealed has been available for several years on Samsung smartphones and also on Apple iPhones.
Android 13 will allow you to change the intensity of the LED flash light.
According to Mishaal Rahman waitAndroid 13 has two new CameraManager class APIs - getTorchSt StrengthLevel and turnOnTorchWithSt StrengthLevel. The first relates to the current brightness level of the lamp, while the second adjusts the brightness level from 1 minimum to the maximum set by the device.
Android 13 will receive functions from Samsung and Apple smartphones
Basically, what the new APIs will allow is users to adjust the brightness of the phone's lamp, which can be useful in different scenarios.
Currently, Android only allows you to turn the flashlight on and off, with very useful shortcuts, even with the smartphone locked. However, in the world of Android, Samsung is one of those that allows you to adjust the brightness of the LED and thus offers an extended benefit in the flashlight function.
The same option was also introduced for several years by Apple on its iOS platform, so you can set this parameter on any iPhone.
Limited lamp brightness adjustment
Despite this modification with Android 13, some models may not receive such a feature, according to Mashaal.
The reason that support for this feature will be limited is because it will require a Camera Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) update...it will be believable up to version N+3...device manufacturers can update their devices to Android 13 while reusing a vendor app designed for an older version of Android does not include the new HAL camera device and support for LED brightness control.
Therefore, to offer this feature, OEMs will have to implement version 3.8 of the HAL Camera Device on Android 13 version. Whether or not manufacturers will implement version 3.8 will depend on the requirements set out in the Vendor's Software Requirements (VSR) for Android 13, which Google has not yet finalized.
