Intel’s RealSense camera technology adds support for 3D features. On some devices like laptops a RealSense camera lets you control your computer using hand gestures. On mobile devices like the Dell Venue 8 7000 Series tablet, Intel’s RealSense Snapshot camera lets you capture depth-of-field information when snapping a photo, so you can edit the depth after the fact.

Now Intel is bringing RealSense to even smaller devices: CEO Brian Krzanich showed off a 6 inch smartphone prototype with a RealSense camera at an Intel Developer Forum event in China.

Intel says not only is the new camera small enough to fit into a compact device like a smartphone (Intel says it’s about 50 percent smaller than earlier versions), but it’s also a longer-range camera.

It’s possible that we could eventually see some features that had previously only been available in laptop and desktop computers come to mobile phones, such as support for 3D gesture controls.
