LG Innotek has inked a deal with Apple to supply facial recognition camera modules for a next-generation iPhone model, according to a new report by The Korea Herald. A report in Korea Economic Daily noted that LG has built a new 269.7-billion won ($238.5 million) facility that will be dedicated to fulfilling Apple’s orders, with the initial order estimate to be about 200 billion won ($177 million). LG already supplies Apple with the rear-facing dual camera module used in the iPhone 7 Plus, and while it’s unclear at this point whether this will continue to be the case with the ‘iPhone 8,’ this deal indicates that LG will at least be providing the front-facing module, which will reportedly be smaller than the current one.
