    According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the star analyst of KGI Securities, Apple could introduce a new feature of "3D selfie" with its next iPhone.


    Ming-Chi Kuo is recognized as one of the most reliable sources for rumors about the iPhone and all Apple products in general. The analyst, who had already revealed a lot of information about the iPhone 8, believes that Apple still has some nice surprises for the launch of its new smartphone, starting with a revolutionary 3D camera ...

    And because Apple would like to make the 3D camera one of the key features of its iPhone 8. The idea would be to propose a camera that would allow 3D modeling of the face of the user in order to integrate Games or mobile applications. If the main use would be playful, nothing would prevent applications like Messenger or SnapChat to take advantage.


    Remember that Apple had bought out in 2013 the company behind the Kinect sensor. The technology in question was used to allow the player to interact with virtual universes by simple movements. Therefore, it would be quite logical that this technology finally arrives on mobile ...

    This technology would also allow Apple to introduce a function of face recognition very sharp, which would unlock its smartphone more easily than with the fingerprint sensor.

    According to the analyst, Apple could integrate a depth sensor into the back camera of his smartphone, similar to what Google did with his Tango smartphones. The success of Pokémon Go has clearly demonstrated that there is a market for this type of product.

    Kuo does not specify whether the 3D sensor will only fit the iPhone 8 "Pro" or all models.
