Huawei’s new patent; Capture a 3D image of the face with a smartphone camera
Huawei has recently filed a public patent, according to which a smartphone with a dual camera can capture 3D images with high accuracy for face and skin analysis. According to Huawei Central, the new patent clearly shows that the Chinese are coming up with creative ideas for the future of the mobile industry.
To better understand what Huawei explains in its new patent, one of the well-known concept model designers, Technizo Concept, has designed a set of renderings based on the Chinese company’s patent.
Huawei is having a tough time in the midst of US sanctions, and is facing a number of challenges in using the latest technologies in its products. Despite all the problems, Huawei’s R&D department is not giving up.
Huawei’s latest patent entitled “Appearance Analysis Method and Electronic Device” was registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization on July 21, 2021 (July 30, 1400). Huawei Central says Huawei’s new patent is 43 pages long and was first approved by the World Intellectual Property Organization in late December (early December). The details of the patent show that Huawei can use it in a variety of ways.
According to what we see in the renderings, the back panel of the Huawei phone has a large module for the camera, which has a circular shape and inside it, a set of triple cameras and LED flash can be seen. The two cameras are in the same direction, and the third camera is positioned at the top of the back panel, which is equidistant from the other two cameras.
Inside the camera system of the Huawei phone, we see a small screen that can appear as a viewfinder for the camera. This display assigns points to various elements of the face, such as the skin. It also offers tips for getting the right pose in front of the camera.
Apparently, the Huawei phone camera has the ability to record a three-dimensional model of the user’s face, and during the image capture process, it displays several instructions to perform face recognition completely. At the same time, the user can rotate his face in the desired direction through the touch screen to examine a part of the face in detail.
The Huawei camera system will be able to provide details about pores, wrinkles, acne, blackheads, color spots, skin redness, etc. to the user. The camera will even be able to detect the depth and size of the pores.
Keep in mind that technology-driven companies typically file many patents, some of which we never see in real products. We do not know at this time whether Huawei will mass-produce the idea in real products. However, we should not forget that smartphones and wearable gadgets have shown more attention to skin and body health over time, and it is unlikely that Huawei will implement its idea.
Some information suggests that Huawei may introduce its new idea in the form of peripherals such as smart mirrors. In such a case, the Huawei Smart Mirror will be able to work independently or in collaboration with the user’s phone. There is even a possibility that we will side with a detachable camera from Huawei; A camera that may also work independently.
