LG G8 ThinQ: a selfie camera with a very small ToF sensor – Tom & # 39; s Hardware

LG integrates the "Real3" sensor manufactured by Infineon into the next LG G8 ThinQ smartphone. It will board a ToF camera at the front (Time of flight) of a small size.

A 3D camera in all smartphones within 5 years?

The ToF sensor measures the distance between an object and the lens using infrared light to scan objects in 3D. This process is used in various biometric authentication methods, such as facial recognition. LG therefore looks at the side of Apple & # 39; s FaceID. In addition, the G8 ThinQ as its predecessor G7 ThinQ has a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Andreas Urschitz, President of Power Management & Multimarket Division of Infineon, expects " in five years, […] to find 3D cameras on most smartphones".
