Sony launches phones with 3D scanners

Sony Mobile Ireland has two new smartphones; the Xperia XZ1 (available from mid-September) and the Xperia XZ1 Compact (available from October).

The new phones feature “world-first smartphone technology” – a 3D scanner called Creator.

The technology allows the user to capture 3D scans in “just one minute”, using up to four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan.

Scans can be used to create content like 3D stickers for messenger apps, detailed PlayStation characters, avatars for apps and wallpapers.

Scans can also be uploaded to growing 3D communities such as Sketchfab, which counts over one million global users, or sent to a 3D printer and made into a keepsake of a well-known landmark, a memory from a special event or the face of a friend or family member.

The ‘Find more’ button within the 3D Creator app allows consumers to explore a growing 3D ecosystem, available through Google Play.

The Xperia XZ1 will be available from mid-September in black and moonlit blue. The Xperia XZ1 Compact will be available from Irish operators from October.
