iPhone8 to use STM Time of Flight Sensor?

A lot of these rumors come to nothing -- this one has more weight than most in that it's being reported in a number of places, and that it's very specific.

Something to watch.

It's also interesting that Ming-Chi-Kuo blew it on his last estimate. Maybe Apple is taking a little more control of what leaks and what doesn't. This guy has had Apple dead to rights for a long time, but didn't get it this time.


 Today, we’ve got some news about the sensors that Apple will use on the device. European manufacturer STM released its earnings lately and the manufacturer saw a massive increase in Capex. Interested? Take a look below to find out more.

The iPhone 8 Will Use Latest Time-of-Flight Sensors Manufactured By STM Suggest Analysts

With each passing day, our smartphones get more and more complicated. The huge array of components and sensors which tick under the hood ensure that users get a seamless and fruitful experience out of their devices. Now, Apple’s got similar plans for the iPhone 8. The teardown of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus by Chipworks unveiled a host of components ticking under the hood.

Out of these, one was STMicro’s ToF sensor, which helps the iPhone carry out a variety of tasks. It helps the device to gauge the distance between the camera sensor and the photographic object. Dubbed as Time-of-Flight, the sensor achieves this completely independently of the reflected light’s level.Now, after the iPhone 7, Apple will also include the sensor in this year’s iPhone 8.
