According to Lu Jialin, an analyst at Deutsche Börse, a new-generation iPhone will use a rear-facing three-camera. It will use 3D sensing modules to enhance augmented reality (AR) imaging, and "fly-time ranging" will be the main sensing technology. AR will become the main specification of the next-generation iPhone camera, and it is also an important research and development function of Apple in 2018-2019.
Analysts said that the iPhone 9's main camera will use three-lens imaging, including two lenses used in stereo vision technology, and the other is a telephoto lens, the user zoom shot. It is reported that the supply chain of the iPhone 9 camera module currently includes Dali, Sony, Sharp, LG Innotek and Alps.
