Intel previously announced its RealSense Camera Technology for 3D sensing , refocusing in later days and to control device with various gesture controls. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, speaking at IDF in Shenzhen today, announced a new, smaller, thinner model of its RealSense camera technology, which is designed for use in smartphones now.
Previous versions of RealSense powered camera technology were used in many PC’s and tablets but were not thin enough to fit-in smartphones. New features added by Intel to these smartphones includes face detection for video calls, Kinect-esque gaming experiences, motion tracking for virtual reality, 3D scanning of objects and distance sensor in flying drones. This new improved technology, along with new added features, also will fit in a 6 inch smartphone and will have relatively lower thermal output. Company also claims that new model will have longer range detection than before.
Intel made no official announcement about specifications and more facts about this camera but it is expected that many device by the end of year may feature this new improved version of RealSense camera.
