Mantis Vision reported to be developing 3D camera solutions for Samsung Galaxy S10
3D camera sensing solutions for the next-generation Galaxy S smartphone from Samsung are reportedly being developed by Israeli firm Mantis Vision, in collaboration with camera module firm Namuga, according to The Investor. The smartphone is tentatively called the Galaxy S10.
Mantis Vision was founded in 2005, and it provided 3D mapping technology for Google’s Project Tango smartphone AR platform. Samsung participated in Mantis Vision’s $10 million funding round in 2014, along with electronic design company Flextronics.
Namuga supplies camera modules for Samsung’s Galaxy A and J smartphones, and Intel’s RealSense AR cameras.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics makes camera modules, and is a main supplier for Samsung Electronics, The Investor reports. It has previously said its 3D-sensing technology would be ready for commercialization in the first half of 2018.
It was recently suggested that Samsung will not include an under-display fingerprint sensor in its Galaxy Note 9, as smartphone makers weigh integration of different facial and fingerprint biometric systems.
