New details, possible photos of iPhone 8’s 3D sensor emerge

In a memo obtained by 9to5Mac, well-respected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple has a “significant lead” on Qualcomm wjhen it comes to 3D sensors, saying Apple is likely two years ahead of its rival. Qualcomm’s “immature” software and hardware will likely delay the appearance of 3D sensing technology in Android phones and give Apple a rare moment where it is first to market with a new feature. As Bloomberg points out, Apple usually prefers to perfect technological advancements rather than rush to be first to market, but their analysis shows that the iPhone 8’s expected advancements in using infrared sensors to detect depth, improve scene detection, boost AR applications and use facial recognition both to unlock the device and authorize payments will all be new in the smartphone space this time around. A photo on Slashleaks claims to show the module responsible for all the 3D sensing magic, but the post has no accompnaying information to help verify whether it is genuine.
