In September of this year, Apple is expected to join the iPhone XI – iPhone XIR, iPhone XI, and iPhone XI Max. Though the square-shaped camera bump is expected to be the fan of iPhone lovers, it is the 2020’s iPhone which is expected to make Buzz with the Major Specs upgrade. While there have been rumors about the 2020 iPhones that have been running for a long time, the latest report discusses rear camera setup, which could possibly be called iPhone 12 or iPhone XII.
According to a DigiTimes report, Apple will add a 3D ToF sensor (flight time) behind its 2020 iPhones or iPhone 12. Adding 3D ToF sensor to iPhone 12’s rear camera will add enhanced reality capabilities. In iOS 12, the company takes the device that started work with ARKit 3 with its ARKit 2 and the upcoming iOS 13.
By adding 3D ToF sensor to the rear camera setup, the iPhone 12 can measure an area of 15 feet or 4.5 meters, which is longer than the sensor on the current Android phone. According to the report, Apple specifically requested its supply chain partners for VCSEL (Vertical-Cavity Surface-Laser) components, which will not only improve the AR capabilities of the iPhone 12 but rather the device to capture more accurately from the depth Will allow. Apple has used VCSEL components earlier in its iPhones – iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max – but they have been used for front-facing features such as face recognition and an emoji.
If the report is actually true, then it will be the first time Apple will be using similar technology in the back. But it will be a year until the details about the iPhone 12 are unclear. Until then we can all wait.
Separately, Apple is also expected to present 5G connectivity to its 2020 iPhones. Reports say that Apple can opt for Qualcomm’s 5G modem because its own 5G modem will not be ready until that time. Apart from this, tech giants are expected to dig LCD display panels, which show in their low-cost iPhone models so that all the OLED designs can be selected.
