Spectricity announces collaboration with Qualcomm to bring spectral imaging to next generation smartphones, unlocking accurate color and seeing beyond what’s visible

Spectricity announces a collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, for Spectricity to develop native reference design support for use with premium Snapdragon® mobile platforms and Spectricity’s spectral image sensor products.

The collaboration will allow for a faster, more efficient implementation for OEMs to integrate spectral imaging in their mobile devices. This in turn can bring significant improvements for camera AWB (automatic white balancing) performance, resulting in more accurate and more pleasing photography, including portraits with accurate skin tone. New applications including e-commerce cosmetics, color picking, as well as skin health analysis are also enabled.

“Qualcomm Technologies is committed to delivering revolutionary image capabilities in our premium mobile platforms to consumers”, said Judd Heape, VP of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies. “By collaborating with Spectricity, we can enable these cutting-edge technologies to offer advanced spectral image sensor integrations for extraordinary camera experiences.”

Glenn Vandevoorde, CEO of Spectricity: “We are committed to bringing spectral imaging to smartphones. Our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies., is a critical step in enabling OEMs to build better cameras for their mobile products, and new, differentiated applications that will improve our daily life, including health. We’re excited to enable this for use on the world’s most popular mobile SoC platform.”
