Well known Apple analyst, Ming Chi Kuo, says that reports about a lower spec TruDepth system on the iPhone X are inaccurate. The KGI Securities analyst, who has proven himself trustworthy when it comes to Apple news, noted in a research note. Kuo believes that Apple is sticking with the technology is announced at launch, without any changes to the sensitivity or accuracy. He noted that the components for the iPhone X are “now stable, leaving no need to switch to other solutions”.

Kuo had earlier predicted that Apple will be pushing the TruDepth camera system for FaceID into all 2018 iPhones. That would ideally need the company to be cent percent sure about its hardware, which Apple has been facing issues with, say reports. According to reports, the company faced major supply issues with the dot projector, which is an integral part of the TruDepth camera system.

In fact, issues with supply are still expected for the iPhone X. Though pre-orders for the device are underway, shipping dates in many countries are 4-5 weeks apart. Kuo himself predicted earlier that Apple will have 2-3 million units of the handset ready to ship on launch day, while 25-30 million units should be sold in this quarter. That is low by Apple’s standards, especially given that the holiday season in the US is almost underway.

Further, Kuo also says that 3D sensing technologies will be coming to Android next year. The analyst expects these technologies to mature by the second half of 2018 and first half of 2019.
