3D Android Smartphones to Boom
Shipments of Android-based smartphones featuring 3D sensing technology are set to boom in 2019, due to back-end time-of-flight (ToF) sensor systems, according to Digitimes Research.
Oppo’s Find X and Xiaomi’s Mi 8 Explorer, launched in mid-2018, were the first two Android-based models that came with 3D sensing technology.
Huawei then followed by rolling out its 3D sensing-enabled models, including Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 RS and Honor Magic 2 3D.
However, only the Find X and Mate 20 Pro have seen their shipments reach more than one million units each since launch.
The introduction of active 3D stereo camera systems is expected to help extend the adoption of 3D sensing technology to mid-tier to high-end
models in 2019.
