Nowadays, it is quite possible to encounter a 3D ToF sensor on any phone. This camera technology helps measure depth in the frame and more accurately calculate augmented reality effects. But Samsung, the South Korean electronic device manufacturer, is now completely parting ways with these sensors.
According to the latest allegations, Samsung will soon completely remove the 3D ToF sensors from its focus. The company, which has so far developed quick formulas for what works and what doesn’t, also attaches great importance to flashbacks in camera systems. Based on the reactions it received from its users, the company gave up this technology because it “did not provide clear advantages”.
Galaxy S22 won’t offer a 3D ToF sensor
Samsung will completely bypass 3D ToF sensors in its expected Galaxy S22 phone family, ET News claims. The source also addressed why the company made the decision. He said they found that consumers’ reaction to phone cameras that did not have this sensor was not “that bad.”
Along with the iPhone 12 series, the 3D ToF sensor, which is also appearing on Apple devices, was chosen by the US-based company to improve augmented reality features. This sensor was once a must-have feature of Samsung’s flagship phones. But after criticism of the S20’s autofocus performance, the company decided to replace this sensor with the laser AF system on the Note 20.
