Intel unveils new smaller RealSense camera for smartphones at IDF 2015

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich unveiled Intel's latest RealSense 3D camera for smartphones at Intel Developer's Forum (IDF) in Shenzen China.

Intel's new version of RealSense camera is smaller and thinner than the previous one and can now can be used in smartphones. It has longer detection range and a lower thermal output.

Krzanich showed off a 6-inch smartphone prototype that had Intel RealSense camera fitted in, but he did not demonstrate the actual working of the camera inside the phone, indicating that it is still at an early stage of development.

"The device which was shown on stage at the Intel Developer Forum was a prototype that was created in collaboration with a Chinese firm, whom we are not naming. The device is meant to show the different types of apps, usage models and form factors that RealSense tech can be integrated into and to encourage innovation." said a spokeswoman for Intel to BBC news.
