Google is about to improve the accuracy of Android phone location data


Android phones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 888 Mobile Platforms will be able to measure location data to within one metre in the near future (approximately three feet). The RTX GNSS correction services platform from Trimble, a long-time collaborator, will be used by Qualcomm to provide Android smartphone makers, service providers, and app developers with more accurate location information.

Trimble and Qualcomm claim to be able to improve Android’s location accuracy by five times. For example, Trimble claims that the new technology will enable lane-level guidance in automobile navigation systems by the second quarter of this year. Ride-sharing drivers may also be able to find their passengers more quickly, and they may be able to specify more specific destinations.

Existing smartphones may or may not be able to benefit from this new technology. In order to get more information, Engadget has reached out to Trimble and Qualcomm.

Privacy concerns naturally arise from the prospect of more accurate location data. Android still allows users to turn off location tracking globally or for specific apps, as well as to delete their location history from the operating system.
