Android 13 will allow users to adjust the brightness of the phone’s flashlight
The first developer preview of Android 13, launched last month, gave us an overview of some of the improvements that the new version will introduce, such as further privacy optimizations, theme icons, and language controls.
Now the latest report says that Android 13 will also allow users to adjust the brightness of the phone’s flashlight.
This news comes from Mishaal Rahman, who said that Android 13 brings two new APIs to the CameraManager class, these APIs are getTorchStrengthLevel and turnOnTouchWithStrengthLevel.
Literally, the first is to get the current brightness level of the flashlight, while the second is to set the brightness level from a minimum of 1 to a maximum number determined by the hardware.
Simply put, these APIs will allow users to adjust the brightness of their phone ‘s flashlight.
Currently, only the flashlight is allowed to be turned on/off in the Android system, but the brightness cannot be adjusted. But on third-party custom skins like OneUI allows users to increase/decrease the brightness of the flashlight.
But this feature is unique to Samsung phones only and not available on other Android devices.
However, with the launch of Android 13, we expect that to change.
