Microsoft Surface Duo camera seeks to break new technological ground

Microsoft Surface Duo was unveiled to the public in a Surface event in October 2019 in its emulator form. And now even before its worldwide release, it looks to break new technological ground.

At the outset, Microsoft Surface Duo looks like a scaled-down version of Microsoft Surface Neo. It has dual 5.6-inch screens and can fit into a pocket comfortably. When unfolded it transforms into an 8.3-inch tablet-like device. Microsoft’s Chief Production Officer, Panos Panay has described it as a communication device and not just a phone.

No matter how he describes it with Surface duo entry it would be the first time since 2017 that Microsoft has made a foray into the mobile field. Microsoft would also make its debut in the folding device market with its Surface duo.

Coming to breaking new technological ground, Microsoft has claimed that Surface duo aims to build a “world-class” camera system. Despite not having multiple cameras on the device, Microsoft aims to provide the single-camera with software-based camera features.

According to reports, the Surface Camera team is using the options of artificial intelligence and machine learning to build a camera for “computational photography”. Algorithms to combine the input from RGB and IR sensors and provide new camera capabilities are being worked on.

The patent application which was released earlier today states that Microsoft is working on the Surface Duo camera to scan three-dimensional objects. Using the data from various sensors and input devices a three-dimensional model can be generated.

Microsoft also stated that this new advancement will be used in mobile devices and also other computing devices. There is not much clarity to this due to a lack of further details at the moment. Microsoft Surface Duo whose expected release was in December 2020 now might hit the markets by April 2020.
