Sony on Monday launched a new smartphone, Xperia XZ1, in India. Priced at Rs 44,990, the highlights of the smartphone include its native 3D scanning feature, an IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and 5.2-inch full HD HDR display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
The Xperia XZ1 allows you to take 3D avatars by scanning the subject in a 360-degree from the rear camera. The process is similar to how you take a panorama photo, just that Sony’s tech requires you to scan the image both vertically and horizontally. The image is processed to deliver a 3D image. The feature works offline, which essentially means the processing of the image happens on the device and not online. Once complete, you can share the 3D image with friends, project it on real life background or even get it 3D printed.
