To offer your sensor TrueDepth, who remember it allows the facial recognition on theiPhone, Apple collaborates today with the supplier AMS. The latter suggested that the size of the notch of the next iPhone of 2019 could be reduced by the Apple.
The supplier of the American firm has just presented new sensors that can be placed behind an OLED screen. Initially, the sensors presented by AMS should make it possible to reduce the size of the notch of the iPhone. Note that the supplier gradually sees the disappearance of the notch.
“This is only possible because the TCS3701 can operate behind an OLED screen, a breakthrough made possible by the exceptional sensitivity of the device and by the implementation of sophisticated measurement algorithms to compensate for the optical distortion caused by the OLED screen“, Specifies AMS.
Unsurprisingly, the information is not official, Apple holding on to its culture of secrecy. According to analysts, 45% of AMS ‘revenue comes from the American company. In this context, the probability that the TCS3701 sensor will be found on a future iPhone seems particularly high.
It is next September that the apple brand will unveil the range that will succeed the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. In the meantime, the first technical information should emerge in the coming weeks.
