The sensor must ensure that the smartphone augmentedreality experiences realistic view, an anonymous source Thursday, at Fast Company.
It would still not be completely sure that the sensor already this year in an iPhone. It is possible that the introduction of the part is postponed to 2018. Reportedly, Apple has trouble with the software and the finger print scanner of the new iPhone, and it is even possible that the telephone delay is on the market.
Analysts at Bank of America think that the iPhone 8 with three to four weeks delay on the market, reports CNBC Thursday.
Last month, Apple introduced ARKit, ontwikkelaarssoftware which it is possible to augmentedreality apps to create. ARKit now makes only use of the camera on the iPhone to an area map and virtual effects over it.
The laser system would be much more accurate distances can be measured, making virtual worlds more realistic can be shown in images of the real world. Would probably the sensors can also be used to the autofocus of the iPhone-camera to speed it up.

In addition, it would be a completely redesigned device will appear, with a virtually borderless OLED screen and other innovations.
