2020 iPhones rumored to feature time-of-flight 3D sensing rear cameras
Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple will use time-of-flight (ToF) 3D sensing rear cameras in its 2020 iPhones.
Specifically, he believes that Apple will launch three new models in 2020 and that two of them will feature this high-tech new camera system.
A ToF camera system uses lasers or LEDs to create an accurate 3D map of its surroundings. It does this by measuring the time it takes for the laser or LED to bounce off objects in the room.
Not only will such a camera system provide better photos, it will also improve AR applications since it can more accurately map out its surroundings.
AR has been a focus of Apple in recent years. At WWDC 2019 earlier this year, the company announced new AR technologies to help developers create better AR apps.
Earlier rumors also say that Apple will introduce 5G on its 2020 iPhones.
