As rumors have indicated so far, LG is expected to launch a Nexus phone later this year, while Huawei is said to be prepping the release of a larger Nexus smartphone. Today we’re hearing about the LG Nexus phone in a new report, including word that the device will feature a 3D camera on the back for some new camera tricks.
Nexus devices have usually focused more on the software department and have never set the standard of hardware (although Nexus 6 users would tell you otherwise), so it’s good to see that Google is making a conscious effort to change that. The report generates from an industry source which claims that 3D camera modules are being offered to LG Electronics for use on an upcoming “premium” Nexus device, with a release apparently scheduled for October.
A phone with a 3D camera makes sense given Google’s expertise with Project Tango hardware over the past two years. This could be a nice way to get Project Tango mainstream after years of being a developer exclusive. Would you fancy something like a 3D camera on the upcoming LG Nexus phone? Sound off below.
