    Flipping to some photos the other day, I found an image with a unknow icon/mark on it. When I clicked it, it allowed me te refocus the image... WOW! I was baffeled. I know this from Lytro camera's only.

    Googling about it, left another suprise. It's not that documented at all? Only a polish site and a youtube.
    I found this link, it also seems a bit Qualcomm related.
    https://www.qualcomm.com/invention/research/projects/computer-vision/computational-photography

    I have no idea how I managed to enable it, I suspect it depends if the software detects enough depth, that it is than enabled somehow.

    Found and translated textclips about it:
    Ubi-focus is a possible focus point on any of the pictures after taking it - that is, from the gallery.

    And that's it. Anyone know more about this UbiFocus and/or ChromaFlash?

    Then how come I can't find anything on this forum or other ones?

    But if you are familiar with this feature, I would like to ask: How do I use / enable it?
    Because I wasn't aware and I accidentally used it.

    Yup, but it still isn't clear (to me) how I can use/enable this...

    Take a photo with refocus enabled and then go to gallery. You will be able to edit that image and set focus.
