Huawei plans on unveiling a smartphone with a 3D camera powered by a Sony sensorThis morning, Bloomberg reported that Huawei plans on unveiling a smartphone with a 3D camera powered by a Sony sensor. According to people familiar with the matter, the camera will be capable of shooting three-dimensional pictures that can be viewed from different angles. Its internal code-name is Princeton and is expected that this phone will be presented by the end of 2018 and will go on sale a few weeks after the announcement. Other Bloomberg sources have added, that Huawei's technology is based on the usage of Sony image sensors that can accurately measure distances by bouncing light off surfaces. This new tech will not only change photography but also augmented reality experiences and gaming. "This is a technology that has never been seen before and, at the extreme, has the potential to change how we view the world," said Yusuke Toyoda, a sensors analyst at Fuji Chimera Research Inc. in Tokyo. Huawei commented to Bloomberg that it does not normally respond to speculative reports. Sony declined to comment.Source
