Samsung has 3D depth sensors in its latest high-end handsets, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. The sensor is also believed to be present in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro.
The feature, which uses a Time of Flight sensor to accurately measure the distance from the camera, is mainly used for camera bokeh effects, but it seems Samsung is looking to make this advanced feature more useful by developing apps for the technology.
Samsung has applied for a trademark for “Make and Play 3D” which specifically mentions the Time of Flight sensor.
The trademark application does not explain exactly what Samsung is planning, but does clearly suggest scanning objects, suggesting a 3D crafting application like Microsoft’s Paint 3D app.
Given that the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is already in the market, the app is expected to launch with the Note 10 on the 7th August.
The Note 10 series is expected to feature 25w fast charging port, UFS 3.0 storage, 12MP primary, 12MP telephoto and a 16MP ultra wide-angle lens in the Pro model, fingerprint reader, and 4,170mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will come with the Exynos 9825 processor coupled with 12GB of RAM. You’ll get two see two different screen sizes; 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED for the Pro model, while the regular Galaxy Note10 will offer a 6.4-inch display and no 3.5mm headphone jack. It is expected to feature super-thin bezels and Sound on Display technology.
