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!
