Vuforia SDK Version: Vuforia Unity 4-0-103 -
Description with steps to reproduce:
Greetings dear Vuforia-Team,
we are currently updating one of our AR apps for our client. First we updated to Unity5 (Pro Desktop, Pro iOS and Pro Android) and Vuforia4 using the classic plan. Then we included a new feature, that uses the front-camera of the device for the app. We successfully testet the app with all of our devices (reaching from the Galaxy S series over some HTC to all Nexus devices) and it works with all of them beside of one device: the Nexus6. On the Nexus6 the front-camera-view is updsidedown. The tracking on the upsidedown camera-image is correct, mentioned that it is therefore also upsidedown.
We made some tests with the physical orientation of the camera chips (android.hardware.camera2.CameraCharacteristics; SENSOR_ORIENTATION) and almost all devices have a angle of 270 degrees with the front cam. The Nexus6 has a angle of only 90 degrees, which calculational would result in exact the 180 degrees, that the camera-image is rotated. Because the Nexus6 is a main target-device for our client we have to focus on fixing this bug, but ran out of possibilites to do this.
We are looking forward to hear from your team, because we have a hard deadline at the end of march.
