Android Smartphone Makers Looking To Switch To 3D Sensing For Future Devices

Android Smartphone Makers Looking To Switch To 3D Sensing For Future Devices

This year Apple made news with the iPhone X, and more importantly, the introduction of Face ID feature for facial recognition. Rather than being an all-screen device that has only generic features, the iPhone X has the camera sensor at the top that breaks the display line at the top of the phone.

"With legislative efforts now focused around USA tax reform, we think Apple could be one of the biggest beneficiaries in our space", RBC analyst Amit Daryanani said in a report.

To accommodate a front screen that is almost all glass, there is no longer a home button-based Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the iPhone X (pictured above with the black frame), such as there was on previous iPhones, including the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (pictured above with the white frames) that launched last month.

For its part, Apple remains adamant that for at least the past year it's been "all in" on the prospect of Face ID replacing Touch ID. The question is, will it do the same thing to the 2018 iPad Pro, or will it put the two features together?

Face ID is Apple's facial recognition feature, the one that sparked a storm of concern on and immediately after the big iPhone X reveal.

IHS Markit has also stated that compared to 2016, the number of smartphones with shipments of more than 1 million units per month has increased 22 from 17 in this year. Apple with its latest FaceID technology is at least 2.5 years ahead of Android, Kuo added. Considering the number of confirmed reports, he also suggested that there was a chance the faulty batteries were just randomly distributed.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen.

With that, Apple confirmed to several publications that they have already been officially notified of the issue and are now looking into it. And it's even easier to spot the iPhone X in the wild right now. Finally, Bank of America Corporation reiterated a "buy" rating and set a $180.00 price objective on shares of Apple in a research report on Tuesday, September 26th. UBS Group AG boosted their target price on shares of Apple from $165.00 to $200.00 in a research report on Sunday, April 2nd. The Motley Fool has a disclosure policy.
