Sales of the iPhone 8 will not begin before October of this year, says one of the suppliers of Apple.
According to rumors, Apple intends to bring augmented reality to a new level by adding laser sensors in the iPhone 8. Company Finisar responsible for the delivery of these components, hinted, when can we expect the release of iPhone jubilee.
Within WWDC, Apple unveiled the 2017 ARKit, with which developers will be able to turn any iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 into a universal platform for augmented reality. But the company has no plans to stop there. The use of the laser near the front camera of the iPhone 8 will allow the device to recognize the depth of the scene, which in turn can be used for reliable identification of users.
According to sources, the iPhone 8 will be used VCSEL laser from the company Finisar. During the conference call, he stated that one of the major corporations have ordered “millions VCSEL”. Although she did not mention Apple is the only company that may need a number of laser sensors.
If you start from a review Finisar, it is expected that the iPhone 8 will be in September, but shipments of smartphones will begin a month later. Usually Apple starts smartphone sales in the first month of autumn. The delayed start of sales of new products may be associated with a shortage of key components.
Among the main features of the expected iPhone 8 has been completely redesigned, glass housing, improved camera face detection technology, edge-to-edge OLED display and support wireless charging.
