Depth Sensing Camera tech is the new thing from Qualcomm

Apple is always bringing new tech with every new iPhone. So why should Android fall behind? This is Qualcomm’s effort to bring Android at par with Apple.

The camera is one such aspect of a phone, which we don’t mind getting better anytime. Qualcomm, the chipset company which rules most of the Android phones, has decided to explore camera a bit more.

They have promised that the next generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC will come will be overhauled to do more, or atleast the same things but faster and more accurately.

Qualcomm has given some information. According to this, the upcoming chipsets can support camera to offer better sensing and 3D camera functionalities.

They claimed,”It’s new chipset can use infrared light, for instance, to measure depth and render high-resolution depth maps for facial recognization, 3D reconstruction of object and mapping. The IR light will come attached to the camera.”

These capabilities can be seen in devices with the chipset in 2018. Here’s a video of Qualcomm explaining the same tech.

Depth sensing capabilities are not a new thing for Qualcomm. It was first showcased in Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 in the year 2015. However, this was bettered in Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset which is used in Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, HTC U11 and OnePlus 5.

For the new and upcoming phones, we are expecting to see this chipset in LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The tech is still not perfect as face recognization can be easily duped.

Earlier: Here’s another one of LG V30 feature that has been revealed. According to it, the V30 will come with the integration of HD TouchSense. It promises haptic feedback better than usual vibrations. Read more…
