Will The OnePlus 7T Pro Also Get a Time-of-Flight Sensor With Its Triple-Camera System?September 19, 2019
Just days before the official launch of OnePlus 7T Pro on September 26 in India, a new image of the smartphone has emerged. The image shows a new sensor at the side of the triple-camera system, most likely a time-of-flight sensor (ToF), which is a 3D depth sensor and used for better-augmented reality features and portrait shots. Smartphones like LG G8 and Huawei Pro 30 are already using ToF scanners in their devices. Apple is also reportedly working on adding ToF sensors to the rear camera on 2020 iPhones.
Other than the sensor, the 7T Pro looks quite similar to the 7 Pro. OnePlus has also officially shared pictures of the standard OnePlus 7T, which highlighted the circular camera array housing the triple rear cameras. “With perfect symmetry from any orientation, a circular design became the natural choice,” CEO Pete Lau wrote on the forum. “A circle’s rounded edges produce an appealing contrast against the straight lines of a smartphone’s rectangular form for a seamless, balanced feel. After going through over fifty design iterations, we think we’ve landed on something pretty special.”
