The mobile augmented reality war over Apple's hegemony with its rivals in Asia is in full swing. Samsung continued the pattern established with the Galaxy S10 4G smartphone on Wednesday and added a depth-sensing camera to the new Galaxy Note 10+, which gives the device some interesting super powers in the field of augmented reality.
Samsung placed both the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ on its launch line-of-the-art launch with front-face recognition (16-megapixel, 12-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel telephoto) but that Note 10+ also includes a fourth camera, a VGA sensor called DepthVision Camera, for depth measurement.
"The Galaxy Note has stood for the very best technology and features right from the beginning," he said DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung, in a statement. "The Galaxy Note10 redefines this promise to the modern note fan who takes his productivity and creativity to the next level with his smartphone and effortlessly switches between ideas and efforts."
The DepthVision camera offers the Note 10+ several unique advanced reality features. First, it can act as a 3D scanner that captures a 3D rendering of an object and turns it into an animated GIF.
In addition, Samsung has integrated its own AR metering app called Quick Measure, which is similar to the Tool Measure offered by Apple and Google.
Finally, Samsung has developed a variant of AR drawing by combining the power of the new DepthVision camera with the S-Pen. In addition to giant screens on the company's smartphones, the pen connected to the S-Pen was a hallmark of the Note series from the start. With a six-axis sensor, the S-Pen can now be used with the AR Doodle feature in the native camera app to create drawings that follow physical space and objects.
The Google Pixel 4 is now adding a depth-sensing front camera, and Apple has reportedly added a rear-facing depth sensor to its next-generation iPhone, and we may be entering the era of the AR smartphone ,
