Described as “groundbreaking for the note”, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 + is equipped with 3D scanning capabilities. The smartphone integrates a DepthVision camera that enables users to scan objects for instant 3D rendering.
Samsung follows the move of other companies such as SONY that launched two years ago the SONY Xperia with 3D Scanning capabilities.
Samsung’s 3D scanning technology can create a photorealistic 3D model of any object. According to the company, the scans can also be used to copy the object in a 3D printer.
The DepthVision camera implemented in the Note10 + uses time-of-flight (ToF) technology, the 3D scanning technology of VIVO, a china-based company. This technology measures the distance between the camera and the part to 3D scan by recording the time it takes for an infrared light beam to be reflected to the camera. With this light pulse, the depth of a scene is then captured and displayed.
To use 3D scanning on the Note10 +, users need to download Samsung’s 3D scanner app. The latter includes a circular guide on the screen that instructs users. They have to leave the part in a specific area of the screen and point the camera in the required direction for a 3D scan. Once the user draws a full circle around the object and captures all angles, the phone creates a 3D model of the object.
The scans can be used both for 3D printing and for AR-3D renderings in videos. Furthermore, they can also be used to mimic the movements of users with body tracking.
The smartphone is available in various colors: Aura Glow, Aura Black and Aura Pink. Available as from August 23rd, the starting price of this device is 1 099 euros.
