Despite the outbreak of the dangerous coronavirus, which led to a decrease in production and a drop in economic indicators, Apple does not plan to abandon the announcement of new devices. In particular, analysts note that the iPhone release will be on schedule. And according to Fast Company, at least one of the 2020 iPhones will receive a 3D camera.
Resource sources report that Apple plans to equip one of the new smartphones with the VCSEL (Vertical Resonator Surface Emitting Laser) system. This innovation will allow the iPhone to determine the depth of the image, and then this data can be used to improve the quality and realism of portraits.
According to sources, the main supplier of components for the new system will be the Californian company Lumentum. At the moment, this manufacturer supplies the Cupertinos with parts for Face ID.
Earlier, network sources and analysts reported that the 3D scanner may appear not only in the iPhone, but also in the iPad Pro. Hints of this were even found in one of the iOS 14 builds, which recently fell into the hands of journalists and experts.
