According to the sources, Apple Inc is planning to improve the augmented reality game with the addition of ToF (Time of Flight) sensors or 3D sensors in their Future iPhones.
The rear 3D sensor will create the three-dimensional reconstruction of the environment. Presently, the iPhone camera recognizes the face of the user from a distance of 25 cm to 50 cm. The new addition of sensors will equip the smartphone with new components and new implementation procedures. The future iPhone will be able to scan the environment and reconstruct the details of the real world.
The people from apple said that the old technology for capturing visual media was the dot projection, which is not so suitable for longer distances. Dot projection works fine for objects near the iPhone, but for a distant scene, it does not perform well and leave out minor details.
Future iPhones will have rear 3D Sensors
The new system will use a laser to capture the left out minor details.
The new generations of the iPhone will have enhanced photo capture tools and the more powerful chip.
One person from Apple Inc said that Apple is in the process of talks with Sony Corp. both companies will soon test the 3D sensors.
The inclusion of 3D sensors is the first step to achieve distinguished augmented reality in the digital realm. Present cameras and sensors are useful for capturing images with detail. But there is space for improvement. 3D sensors will capture the images with depth, which will supercharge the user experience.
Apple Inc is a pioneer in providing new capabilities in cameras. Apple has generated 300 billion dollars worth of value in stock in a year or two. This news will surely increase the stock price of Apple. Because no other smartphone company is releasing similar camera features soon.
Expert analysts are calling this groundbreaking news. Some even say that the stock price of Apple will take a roller coaster ride.
The users will possibly enjoy 3D sensors in their iPhone in 2020.
