Portrait Mode is all the rage these days in smartphone cameras, so it’s not surprising to see that Essential is adding the feature to its flagship device.
Essential has pushed out an update for the Essential Phone camera app which adds the ability to take a photo using Portrait Mode. With it, Essential Phone owners will be able to apply a blur to the background of their photos, bringing more focus to the subject in the foreground:

But that’s not all, Essential Phone owners. The camera app update also includes reduced JPEG compression for improved image quality and exposure compensation in all regular camera modes. In addition to all that, the update adds stability fixes for good measure.
Essential continues to improve the experience for the Essential Phone. Some might say that features like Portrait Mode should have been available since launch, but at least the company is adding them at all.
If you own an Essential Phone, how are you liking the smartphone so far?
