LG and Infineon Introduce LG G8 ThinQ and Front-Facing Time-of-Flight Camera
Selfie lovers rejoice! LG Electronics and Infineon Technologies AG have joined forces to create the LG G8 ThinQ with front-facing time-of-flight (ToF) camera.
Infineon’s REAL3TM image sensor chip will be the power house behind the camera allowing for capabilities never before seen in a smartphone’s front facing camera. The chip will be able to capture infrared light as it is reflected off of the subject making ToF faster and more effective in ambient light than its 3D counterparts.
Its quick response speed is also useful in biometric authentication methods, like face-recognition.
