Sony recently launched the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact smartphones at the IFA. Save for a few changes, the smartphones come with identical features on board. A new breakthrough feature is the 3D Creator, Sony Mobile's unique in-house solution for fast and easy scanning of 3D objects.
There are many playful options to enjoy with 3D Creator, such as creating an avatar for use in the camera AR effects options, setting a live wallpaper, sharing on social media with your friends as a 3D sticker, or sending to a 3D printer to make it into a memorable keepsake. So in simple words, this 3D creator app lets you capture images in 3D. Currently, it is only available in Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact.
However, Sony has confirmed through its Twitter account that another Sony smartphone is soon going to get this app. The smartphone is Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which is the flagship from the company. The app will be rolled out as part of the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The Xperia XZ Premium was originally launched with Android 7.1 Nougat OS.
