Bloomberg: Apple wants rear-facing 3D sensor by 2019

|About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)|By:, SA News Editor

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) wants to have rear-facing 3D sensors in iPhones by 2019, according to Bloomberg.  

Apple is leaning towards different tech than what appears in the TrueDepth system in the iPhone X, which uses a laser dot pattern to measure a face for 3D imaging.

The tech under consideration would instead use a laser to bounce off objects then measure the distance to create a 3D picture. The line of sight method would improve the display of AR objects in the surrounding environment.

TrueDepth would still appear in the forward-facing sensor system.

Sensor makers that could benefit from this move include Infineon (OTCQX:IFNNY +3.2%), Sony (SNE -0.1%), and STMicroelectronics (STM -0.1%).
