LG G8 ThinQ to use Infineon 3D sensor for improved front camera

ZDNet

LG's upcoming G8 ThinQ smartphone will have an advanced 3D sensor near its front camera to support features such as facial recognition, the South Korean electronics maker announced. The 3D sensor, made by German firm Infineon Technologies, uses a Time of Flight (ToF) method to detect objects. It measures the time it takes for infrared light to reflect back from its subject, and when this information is combined with a camera, it improves the way objects are expressed in 3D. As the sensor can detect objects without being uninterrupted by other lights, it has a high recognition rate and is optimal for augmented reality and virtual reality applications as well, LG said. It will also be used for biometric authentication such as facial recognition, and can create more natural selfies among other things, LG added.
