Instagram Bringing 1080p Crispiness to Android


Instagram revealed earlier today that they are rolling out 1080p photos to Instagram on Android and iOS. I just received version 7.1.1 on a few of my phones, and the photos are looking a bit crispier, but its hard to say for sure. Unfortunately Instagram did not clarify whether the feature is rolling out in a specific update or if the feature is being rolled out in a small change under the hood.

Instagram currently resizes photos to 640×640, but this typically results in downscaling of high resolution photos taken by current high-end smartphones. I tend to use Instagram quite a bit for posting both tech news from my website Dope Tech Daily, as well as plenty of sneaker photos. Give me a follow @jspring86, if you haven’t already; let me know if photos are looking crispier on your Android device today!

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
