We may be seeing a 3D ToF sensor or two on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10
Samsung has had 3D ToF sensors on their devices before - specifically on the Samsung Galaxy A80 and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Now, we may be seeing the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 10 follow suit with a 3D ToF sensor on the front and back of the device. The 3D ToF sensor is used to render bokeh effects on portrait shots, AR applications and games as well as face recognition on devices.
Renders show quad sensors on the back of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ which we suspect may include the 3D ToF sensor. The second 3D ToF sensor is said to be placed on the front of the smartphone - similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. However, due to the rumoured single punch hole design in the front of the device, this may be hard to implement. However, we may not be seeing the sensor at all on the standard edition of the Note 10 as it only comes with a triple rear camera setup alongside the LED flash.
KOLEN, a South Korean lens maker has apparently invested USD$21.6million for a brand new production plant in Vietnam. This will effectively increase production capacity from 13million lenses to 25 million lenses. KOLAN had chosen Vietnam as its location due to its partnership with Samsung. As of right now, Samsung manufactures more than half its smartphones there.
