Did you know there is a phone that can focus in the dark with an assist light?
We’re talking about a strange and interesting phone way back from 2008, the Nokia 6220 classic. The 6220 classic did not only feature auto-focus assist light, it was also was a good overall cameraphone with powerful Xenon flash.
Why are we telling you about this now? Simple - because with the LG G3 right around the corner, this is exactly how the auto-focus assist light on it could work. You’ve probably already seen the technology on stand-alone cameras, where the biggest benefit you get is the capability to have properly focused images at night and in low-light. Some other phones back in the day (usually with Xenon flash) also had the assist light feature.
Thanks for the tip!
