Samsung Galaxy S10 May Feature 3D-Sensing Camera to Rival iPhone's TrueDepth Camera

Samsung Galaxy S10 May Feature 3D-Sensing Camera to Rival iPhone's TrueDepth Camera

Posted March 15, 2018 at 4:17pm by iClarified
Israeli startup Mantis Vision is working with camera module firm Namuga to integrate its 3D sensing software into a camera module for the Samsung Galaxy S10, according to a report from The Bell via The Investor.

Mantis Vision was established in 2005 and attracted a combined $10 million investment from Samsung and Flextronics in 2014. Its 3D mapping technology was used in Google's Project Tango.

Namuga provides camera modules for Samsung's mid-range and low-end smartphones including the Galaxy A and J. It also provides 3D sensing camera modules for Intel's RealSense AR cameras.


In January, Samsung Electro-Mechanics, a main supplier for Samsung Electronics, said it would make 3D sensing technology ready for commercialization in the first half of 2018. "The company is closely working with 3-D sensing solution developers for new growth opportunities."

Equipping its flagship smartphone with a 3D sensing camera would allow Samsung to introduce a true Face ID competitor. The Galaxy S9 will be released tomorrow in select markets, so the S10 likely won't be released for another year.

Hahahaha Samsung is always so amusing with its copycat shenanigans. Funny fact: someone else tries a new idea, fails more often than not, then Apple does it the right way only to be copied by Samsung with hilarious results :P

That doesn't mean that they are better and the long run. A company can't execute something without the idea first. That's why Samsung always waits for Apple to make the first move so they can cash in on their success, but guess who wins? The one who thought of it first. Heck their are people that eventually do get a feel for flawlessly executive the idea to where we have seen them succeed before others try to clone the features they want in on. Now FTHOBA!!! Just sayin'.

Can’t Samsung be original for once?

No. They try to make an improved version of something. That's how companies try to leech off others by not trying to put in work for themselves and have others do it for them so consumers can buy into them, or at least they hope to.
