While Huawei has been making a name for themselves as manufacturers of affordable handsets, they have started to make their way into higher-end devices with the Ascend D Quad which was announced earlier this year at MWC. While high-end hardware specs are no doubt welcome by end-users, it seems that Huawei is looking to introduce some interesting features as well. In an interview with Computerworld, Huawei’s North American research chief, John Reese, revealed that the company is looking into 3D gestures for use with their smartphones.
This system would utilize dual front-facing cameras on the smartphone along with a powerful processor to decipher the video and interpret the user’s gestures. It was also mentioned that Huawei is currently heavily investing into research for cloud computing. Could they be joining services like Dropbox, Google Drive and the recently launched LG Cloud? While that remains to be seen, the integration of gestures into future smartphones certainly sounds like an interesting idea, but what do you guys think? Good idea or gimmicky?
