Looks like the iPhone 11 is going with a major shift in camera
The iPhone will be completely redesigned in 2020, but until then we knowApple AAPL +5.69%’s design plans are modest with a focus on official price cuts. So how will the company generate excitement for its 2019 iPhones? Now we know…
In a major scoop, Bloomberg has revealed Apple is working with Sony to integrate long distance 3D cameras into its next-generation iPhones. This is technology, with the potential to transform photography, security and gaming. Furthermore, the source couldn’t be better: Bloomberg spoke to Sony itself.
“Cameras revolutionized phones, and based on what I’ve seen, I have the same expectation for 3D [cameras],” said Satoshi Yoshihara, head of Sony’s sensor division, when speaking with Bloomberg.
With Apple’s next-generation iPhones launching in September, this should make you very excited indeed.
Differentiating itself from rivals, Sony’s 3D cameras use ‘Time of Flight’ technology (previously used only in industry). It sends out invisible laser pulses and measures the time before they bounce back to build detailed 3D models of objects up to five metres away.
