Intel develops a new, smaller RealSense smartphone camera

Intel develops a new, smaller RealSense smartphone camera
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich displayed a new RealSense camera at IDF in Shenzhen today that is smaller and thinner than the previous version. It also runs cooler than the previous model as well. The executive showed how the camera fits into a 6-inch prototype, although it should be noted that Krzanich didn't power up the device while he was on stage.

Intel also announced a partnership with Chinese retailer JD to improve the latter's warehouse management. Using a tablet integrated with a RealSense depth camera, Intel showed how the snapper can help determine which size box is necessary to help ship or store products. Sounds like a great tool for JD's warehouse. Krzanich also displayed a Windows 10 powered tablet that signed him into a program merely by scanning his face with a RealSense camera.

So far, we have no idea when the new RealSense snapper will be available. When Intel does offer it to smartphone manufacturers, it should be capable of doing the features mentioned above.
