Apple will officially announce the 2019 iPhones in September but the leaks have already given us a conception of how they are going to be. From multiple camera set-ups to multiple variant launches, everything is already on the internet. But now, a step further, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported some news about the iPhone coming next year. Yes, you read that right, the iPhone coming next year that is 2020.
Kuo this time has given out some game-changing information saying Apple is likely to incorporate Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors in their iPhones from 2020 onwards. This can improve the camera quality of devices and equip them with advanced augmented reality features.
A Time-of-Flight sensor is like the infra-red TrueDepth camera system seen in iPhones these days on the front of the device. It enables Face ID. Adding a 3D-sensing system to the back camera would enable real like 3D photo captures, conceivably opening up new and advanced augmented reality opportunities. This system at the rear of the 2020 iPhones would work at much longer distances than the front-facing TrueDepth sensors used for Face ID.
Kou also talks about all the 2020 iPhones having FaceID and 5G connectivity supporting both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands.
Apple is anticipated to launch the iPhone lineup in 2020 with 6.7-inch, 5.4-inch, and 6.1-inch screen sizes.
