A new leak for the next generation of iPhones has come up online which gives us more insight into what’s in store for the potential future buyers. We are looking at a completely redesigned iPhone with the best in class camera technology that will likely be available by the end of next year. The leak speaks about the use of Sony’s 3D Camera sensors which has never been seen on an iPhone before and will probably bring in luck for the company in 2019.
A report on Bloomberg talks about the upcoming relationship between Apple and Sony:
Sony’s bullish outlook for 3D cameras provides much needed optimism to the global smartphone industry, which is suffering a slowdown as consumers find fewer reasons to upgrade devices. The Tokyo-based company has started providing software toolkits to outside developers so they can experiment with the chips and create apps that generate models of faces for communication or virtual objects for online shopping.
“Cameras revolutionized phones, and based on what I’ve seen, I have the same expectation for 3D,” said Yoshihara, who has worked for more than a decade on wider industry adoption of cameras in smartphones. “The pace will vary by field, but we’re definitely going to see adoption of 3D. I’m certain of it.”
The 3D camera sensors from Sony will utilise “Time of Flight” technology which is basically a beam of invisible laser pulses to measures the time before they bounce back to build detailed 3D models of objects up to five metres away.
