Surely one very cool feature that we find on the HTC One M8, is the phone’s Duo-Camera system, which can not only create some neat effects with your shots, but can also allow developers to do something with this feature as well. Still, if you thought that this is simply a matter of snapping two cameras on a phone, that’s not really the case. The One M8 uses some unique software and hardware techniques to pull this off, and Qualcomm wants to bring this to more OEMs.

Qualcomm’s senior director for cameras and imaging, Tim Yates  has just announced that the company is working on bringing additional capabilities to the Snapdragon 805 processor, which will allow both stereo and depth cameras so that phone manufacturers won’t have to do it themselves from scratch. This will even allow it to take 16 megapixel burst shots while also filming video at the same time, something which not even some of the greatest cameras in the market can do. The Snapdragon 805 can also offer 3D noise reduction on videos, and the chip’s gyroscope allows for digital image stabilization.

At this point we might see the first batch of smartphones with these features launching as soon as the fall of this year, so stay tuned for some cool smartphone features to come.
