Putting Its AI Feature to a Test

To assess the AI features, we decided to conduct a quick test, specifically using the Super Resolution feature to see how it handles upscaling a low-resolution image.

Below is the original image at 1920×1434 pixels, which you may notice is slightly blurry even at full scale.
