Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Phone: The 3D Sensing Technology with ToF Explained

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G phone: As reported earlier, Samsung is well prepared to launch a high-end Samsung Galaxy S10 device, with a 6.7-inch display and will be the first one to carry the 5G service as well. Though the exact nomenclature of this smartphone has not been disclosed, it is spoken of as the ‘Beyond X’ model, a code Samsung calls it by internally. Of the unique features that this phone will be launched with, more details have emerged about the 3D sensing technology that will do away with the infamous notch on the display screen.

3D Sensing with TOF – Different from Apple 3D Technique

One might be tempted to ask if the 3D sensing technology that the new Samsung Galaxy S10 will be sporting is the same as the 3D facial recognition that Apple introduced in its iPhones. It has now been explained that it is not and this is a different technology with what is known as the time-of-flight or TOF method which is built into the camera that has the 3D sensing capability. It uses a lot of Augmented Reality or AR-based technology to deliver the expected results. It is a special and patented process that involves the sensor collecting the image captured by the camera and synthesizing it into a 3D image using the measured depth of field and the time taken for the image to travel from the object to the sensor. Here’s where AR is applied to obtain the results and then using it to suit the requirement in a smartphone for unlocking the phone securely.

Both Front & Rear to Have 3D Sensing

What is more interesting to learn is that Samsung will be fitting these 3D sensors in the front display, embedded below the screen as well as in the rear panel. The front one, as explained above will be primarily for facial recognition and for unlocking the phone as explained above. The rear one may be used for certain AR and VR features. It has been disclosed that the manufacturers of these 3D sensors Samsung Electro Mechanics as far as the rear one is concerned and Patron for the front 3D sensor.

This particular technology has been under debate and discussion on relevant forums for long and it was rumored that Samsung is yet to perfect the technique and the images and photographs taken with the front sensors beneath the display screen were not up to the mark, primarily due to insufficient light reaching the sensors. Obviously, the Korean company’s technical team has been able to overcome these issues and the company is well prepared to have the Samsung Galaxy S10 model with 5G capability launched in March 2019.

All doubts should now rest on this issue.
