The Mate 20 series smartphone from Huawei comes with Leica-branded lenses. Along with that, the major highlight of the camera is that the phone supports several AI-based and AR-based functions and features, aiming to provide an impressive camera performance.
Powered by the company’s own Kirin 980 chipset, which comes with two NPU chips, where one is dedicated to “vast AI computing,” while the other tackles “specific tasks.” As per the company, the setup boosts image recognition performance 120 percent.
Now, Huawei has officially launched its ‘3D Moderator’ application for the users of Mate 20 20 and Mate 20 RS Porsche Edition, which enables creating own AR interactive 3D elements, known as “AI Live Model” or “3D Live Object”.
This is possible because of the array of front-facing sensors, which includes a 24MP RGB camera sensor, a dot projector, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, an IR camera. Using those sensors and some artificial intelligence-based algorithms, the device can quickly scan the toy object — such as a doll — and can also simulate the limb movements.
The company says that the object selected for scanning should be 15-25cm in length and parts of it should be at least 5cm in diameter. For animation effects, users can choose from a range of actions, including happy jumping, ballet, happy walking, cross-stepping, easy running, Chinese kung fu, among others.
The object can then move and dance in augmented reality, providing an immersive AR interactive experience. It can also be shared on social media platforms. Users can also use the software to create their own custom interaction. Similar to Google’s Playground AR app, users can also take photos with the virtual toy.
As we said earlier, the newly launched ‘3D Moderator’ application on the Huawei’s application market, is only supported by two smartphones — Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 RS Porsche Edition.
