The 3D ToF Sensor in The Samsung Galaxy S22 Series May be Removed, According to a Report

According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S22 flagship may continue to lack a 3D ToF sensor in its camera setup. This sensor has been used by several flagship phone manufacturers to increase the depth of field in portrait photography. It’s also used in virtual reality, but Samsung claims the technology doesn’t have enough benefits over conventional depth-of-field techniques. Prior to removing them from the Galaxy S21 and Note 20 series, Samsung used these sensors on its phones.

Features of the Samsung Galaxy S22:

While it is still too early for Galaxy S22 rumors, there have been a few that have surfaced. According to a recent article from Korea’s ET News, Samsung will not have a 3D ToF sensor on the Galaxy S22 series of phones. It obtained details from a source familiar with Samsung’s phone production plans.

Consumers, according to this source, do not find the 3D ToF sensor to be very useful. Apple had used the technology in its iPhone 12 series, so the company wanted to include it in its new phones. However, it decided against it, and as a result, the sensor will not be included in the Galaxy S22.

Samsung was one of the first to use the 3D ToF sensor, which was first used in phones in 2018. Because of the improved depth effects, the technology will boost portrait mode. However, the findings aren’t all that different from conventional phone portrait photography. To boost depth effects, manufacturers have focused on standard depth/telephoto sensors, apps, and better auto-focus. A 3D ToF sensor can also be used for virtual reality, which seems to be its primary target right now.

KEY POINTS:

  • A 3D ToF sensor for depth and virtual reality will not be included in the Samsung Galaxy S22.
  • Samsung argues that the technology offers no obvious benefits.
  • Instead, the next Galaxy flagship could have a larger main sensor capable of providing natural depth of field.
