IPhone X's TrueDepth camera is years ahead of the Android competition

IPhone X's TrueDepth camera is years ahead of the Android competition”

Previously, KGI estimated competitors would catch up in one to two years; however, after examining Apple's technical demonstrations, it's now thought to take longer.

KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, has raised his estimate of the number of years it will take Android manufacturers to reach parity with the camera employed on the Apple iPhone X.

According to the report, the TrueDepth Camera will give a huge technological lead to Apple throughout 2018 and 2019, leading him to believe that the iPhone X will command a huge market despite the constraints being visible in 2017. Kuo also added that KGI Securities is fully confident about iPhone's growth prospects in the premium smartphone segment over the next two years. Additionally, it remains to be seen how consumers take to other features enabled by the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system, such as Animoji.

The TrueDepth camera, which debuts on the iPhone X, is actually a highly sophisticated system with multiple components, including a traditional camera, an infrared camera, a projector, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and more. The technology also helps the Face ID make a complete 3D map of the face, and match it against the stored image on the phone to unlock it.

The iPhone X is available to pre-order from 23rd October, before going on sale on 3rd November.
