This will blow your mind: Huawei working on smartphone that can take 3D pictures

The Chinese tech giant is trying to take over Apple's market share by offering something novel.

The phone, is code-named Princeton internally, and is likely to be announced before the year ends. Everything about the phone is under close wraps at this moment and the company is going to great lengths to maintain secrecy.

The technology, apparently uses sensors developed by Sony Corp. that can accurately measure distances by bouncing light off surfaces. This is the kind of technology that has never been seen before, and also has the potential to change how we view the world.

The new camera will be able to create 3D models of people and objects, generate images from numerous angles. Developers will also be able to control apps and games in novel ways, with hand gestures.

Huawei will probably feature the camera in more than one phone model, including some slated for later in 2019.
