Qualcomm unveils its first depth-sensing camera technology for Android devices
The new IPSs feature a new camera architecture designed for advancements in computer vision, image quality and power efficiency. Moreover, the camera module program will include a trio of camera modules, including an iris authentication module, a passive depth sensing module, and an active depth sensing module.
According to Qualcomm, the Spectra Mobile Program has been expanded to include new camera modules that are able to take advantage of active sensing of superior biometric authentication, dense depth map generation, and segmentation.
Whether or not Qualcomm's new depth-sensing camera will be as effective as the company says, we'll probably find out when it hopefully makes it to Snapdragon Mobile chipsets.
