LG will unveil its newest Android flagship later this month during a press conference in Barcelona, Spain, but the company already announced one of the phone's new features before of the Mobile World Congress.

This technology isn't new, as some cameras from the likes Huawei, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi have all put ToF sensors on their backs.

LG has announced its latest phone, the LG G8 ThinQ, and revealed that it will come with camera technology that's set to rival what's in the iPhone XS. The recently released Honor View 20, for example, includes a 3D lens alongside its main 48-megapixel rear sensor that can measure distance between the subject and the camera lens as well as the volume of what you're shooting. The front of the phone will include a time-of-flight sensor capable of performing 3D scans.

Time of Flight technology is something that we are seeing more and more in smartphones.

Here's LG's Response To Face ID

The ToF sensor is able to capture infrared light that is reflected off the person it's pointed at.

LG has collaborated with Germany based Infineon Technologies for G8 ThinQ's 3D ToF camera.

The takeaway here is that this REAL3 image sensor provides a "secure verification system without sacrificing camera capabilities". LG also claims that the technology is usable both indoors and outdoors because it doesn't get affected by light from external sources.

ToF tech will help selfie photography for sure, but also works well for face-recognition, so is a good tech for biometric authentication. As a result, ToF is said to be faster and more effective in ambient light, and this will reduce processor workload and power consumption. Last time, it focused on its first 5G phone, believed to be called the LG V50 ThinQ, which will launch alongside its usual G series flagship.
