LG to Supply 3D Facial Recognition Camera for iPhone 8

Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were hardly groundbreaking launches. While the phones did feature powerful specs, they lacked the design change that would have set them apart from the models offered a year before.

With the iPhone 8, Apple intends to remedy this and provide customers with a completely new design and impressive new features that would make the iPhone 8 one of the biggest launches this year.

As such, reports from Korea reveal that Apple has designated LG Innotek as the manufacturer of 3D facial recognition camera systems for the upcoming iPhone 8. LG isn’t a surprising pick, considering that the South Korean company already produces dual-camera systems on the iPhone 7 Plus.

LG plans to spend $238 million on developing a plant
In order to meet the demand for the iPhone 8, LG intends to invest $238 million into a plant for producing 3D facial recognition modules, part of the front-facing camera system on the iPhone 8.

Apple could equip the iPhone 8 with a 32mm-equivalent camera, as well as a wide-angle lens of 24mm, which would be either paired with the existing 32mm lens or coupled with a smaller 28mm camera, according to Mac Otakara. The hardware for the 3D module is expected to use algorithms developed by PrimeSense, which Apple acquired back in 2013.

After much speculation, recent reports revealed that production of iPhone 8 parts is on schedule and TSMC has just started manufacturing A11 chips, after encountering some problems with the 10nanometer FinFET production process. The issues were solved and the sole supplier of chips for Apple iPhones started production for this year’s chipset.

iPhone 8 is also expected to come with wireless charging, as well as an OLED display and a Touch ID integrated possibly below the display or inside the Apple logo on the back of the smartphone. The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are also said to come with LCD models and edge-to-edge displays, as for the iPhone 8.
