Last modified : May 29. 2019

The 3D Depth Camera detects and measures distances between the camera and the subject so you can switch between foreground and background focus with ease. The new 3D Depth Camera uses ToF (Time of Flight) technology to judge depth and distance of an object, taking your photos and videos to the next level with Live focus. As there are 3D Depth cameras located on the both the front and rear camera, you can capture incredible content at just a tap away.
