LG Nexus 5 is rumored to have a 3D camera module. This 3D camera module is achieved by placing two camera at the same location side by side and it is enhanced with infrared light sensors so that it still able to capture pictures with good quality even though they are taken in darkness.
It seems like this kind of technology has been attempted before by Amazon with the product named Amazon Fire Phone. The difference is that the product from Amazon is using 4 cameras while LG Nexus 5 will be using only 2 cameras. Unfortunately, Amazon did not succeed with its product.
The dual camera setting for LG Nexus 5 has been confirmed by LG official. LG has been experimenting with this kind of setting ever since the company released Optimus 3D smartphone from 2011.
If everything goes well, the Google and LG partnership project which goes by the name of “Project Tango” technology will be carried over in the revised version of Nexus 5. Project Tango is designed to enable smartphones and tablets to show the 3D model of the user’s environment via the combination of depth camera, motion tracking camera, RGB camera and also a variety of sensors.
LG Nexus 5 will be announced in October 2015 and will be pre-installed with Android M. On top of that, it is rumored that the smartphone will come with fingerprint scanner.
