New York: Several top of the line smartphones are coming out in the next few weeks. Korean tech giant is coming out with its much anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets.
After the debacle called Galaxy Note 7, this is the most important handset that is coming out of Samsung stable. Though several other handsets have come out and Samsung seems to be doing rather well despite all the bad press, the biggest test is expected to be with its forthcoming flagship handsets.
Another Korean smartphone maker, LG, is coming out with its best handset, LG G6, and none has any doubt that it will be as stunning as the last year’s flagship from LG.
Nonetheless, the handset that is hogging limelight is neither Galaxy S 8, or for that matterGalaxy S8+. It is Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 8 is the talk of the town. It is notwithstanding the fact that its launch is still around six months away.
The forthcoming flagship from Apple, according to very dependable source, will be coming with very exciting new feature. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who is a trusted Apple source and most of his predictions in the past have proven to be rather accurate is talking about a very interesting feature in new iPhone 8 camera. Ming-Chi Kuo says that the forthcoming handset will come with advanced facial recognition features on the iPhone 8.
Ming-Chi Kuo further says that United States’ based Apple’s iPhone 8’s front facing camera will be equipped with infrared sensor module that scans the 3D environment in front of it. The new functionality is apparently based on technology Apple gained when it acquired Israeli firm PrimeSense, which is the same team behind Microsoft’s Kinect sensor.
If this is true, the improvement in the new iPhone’s front facing camera will be nothing short of monumental. This means that the iPhone 8 front-facing 3D scanner will be able to take 3D selfies. A report in leading Apple blog, by 9to5Mac, says that this new and revolutionary feature will be used in next-generation mobile games to actually place the player’s 3D head on a video game character’s body.
