Samsung to launch a new smartphone with a 3D hologram technology

Published

Samsung is reportedly working on launching a new smartphone with a 3D hologram feature. The company has already filed the patent for the same.

The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

Samsung patented method for hologram projection from the display

Earlier this year, Samsung Electronics filed a patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) for a ‘hologram reproducing apparatus and method thereof’. The patent was published on November 29, 2018, and describes precisely how a 3D image can be projected into the air.

The display is provided with a relay lens that contains a series of microlenses. The relay lens contains a spatial light modulator (SLM) with a filter. The SLM ensures that the hologram pattern is reproduced correctly, after which it is projected as a light beam from the display. By using the intervention of light, a high-quality holographic image can be realized.

It is a technically defined patent, in which the operation of each individual microlens, the filters to be used and the operation of the light guide plate are described in detail.

 

It is difficult to predict whether and when we can expect the first Samsung 3D hologram smartphone. Although the hologram was invented in 1971 by Denis Gabor, the possibilities of 3D technology have only really taken concrete form in recent years.

Think for example of the 3D cinemas or the Microsoft HoloLens headset. At Bright Days 2018 we also encountered several holographic projections last month. In the vast majority of cases, however, it is still necessary to use 3D glasses.

The patented technology is still future music, it is clear that Samsung seriously investigates the possibilities. It, therefore, seems to be a matter of time before we can project high-resolution 3D images from our smartphone, and finally, there are already several apps for it.

xiaomi black shark 2 full review

Xiaomi has finally launched the second generation of the Black Shark gaming smartphones. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is a substantial upgrade over the Xiaomi Black Shark.

Xiaomi Black Shark 2: What all is new?

For starters, we get the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with RAM up to 12GB. There is an under-display fingerprint scanner at the front of the device. While the rear looks almost the same, we get a bumped-up camera module.

The price of the device is kept at around $511 which is not too big of a jump when compared with the original Black Shark that cost around $577 for the top-of-the-line variant when it was launched.

ZTE Axon S leaked renders showcase a horizontal sliding camera tech

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.Last year, ZTE launched the ZTE Axon M which boasted of a dual display. A little while ago, the company launched the ZTE Axon 10 Pro flagship.

The company is now all geared up to launch yet another amazing smartphone dubbed the ZTE Axon S.

As per the recently leaked renders (courtesy of Trending Leaks), the ZTE Axon S will sport a triple rear camera setup which will interestingly pop out horizontally.

Looking at the renders, we can clearly see that the device will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner. Furthermore, there would be a dual front camera which will be integrated into the same protruding mechanism.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too

The sliding mechanism does not appear to be motorized and will most certainly be manual which makes sense.

As of now, there is no word on the official specifications of the device, but the report further mentions that we will get a 48MP primary sensor and a 19MP secondary sensor. The third one will most possibly be a ToF sensor.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.

Though the specifications of the device are not clear as of now, we can expect the ZTE Axon S to be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with at least 8GB of RAM (given the company’s history).

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.

A little while ago, we got a bunch of wallpapers which blended in perfectly with the under-display camera layout of the recently launched Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones.

You can have a look at them by following our existing coverage of the same.

Now, Samsung has decided to make things official as the company has launched official cut-out wallpapers for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy S10+.

They, however, are not going to be free of cost

These cut-out wallpapers are available on the Samsung Theme Store. They, however, are not going to be free of cost.

If you want to download these wallpapers, they cost $0.99 a piece. The sad part is that you cannot even try them before downloading (for obvious reasons).

Still, if you want to try out some of the cut-out wallpapers for free, you can head to this SubReddit and get them all for free.

Update: We now have the download links to the wallpapers. You can get them all from the links below

Even after having almost all the latest tech, there will be a big bunch of people who would hate the design choice as the both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ feature an under-display camera which leaves a dark spot at the top right side of the display.

In case you are not a big fan of the holes too, these wallpapers are going to make you a lot happier.
