Samsung's next flagship Galaxy device is apparently not expected to include a Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensor which debuted on the Galaxy Note back in 2019 because the technology’s level of use reportedly failed to meet the company's internal expectation.
A new report has it that Apple's first virtual reality (VR) headset may be arriving next year, featuring the design close to that of other brands and carrying a price tag of $500.
According to sources at Taiwan-based supply chain makers, the Cupertino technology giant Apple has now increased orders for time-of-flight LiDAR scanners that are used on the latest iPhones, reportedly thanks to strong demand for the iPhone 12 Pro smartphones.
We have been hearing that the next iPhone might include a LiDAR scanner for enhanced augmented reality and photography features but so far haven't seen any concrete evidence in form of leaked parts to support the rumor. Today, however, a claimed rear glass iPhone 12 component suggests that LiDAR is coming to the upcoming iPhone refresh.
Based on recently discovered CAD designs, a leaker claims only the flagship iPhone 12 model, the rumored 6..7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, will come equipped with LiDAR.
Word on the street is that Apple is going to bring another LiDAR Scanner to a future Apple-branded product, and this time around it could be an iPhone.
The new iPad Pro is the first Apple device equipped with a time-of-flight laser sensor that works similar to the TrueDepth camera in terms of depth mapping, only better. It's the key stepping stone to Apple's rumored augmented reality headset, and a new video shows it in action.
Apple today refreshed its flagship iPad Pro models, bringing even more pro features such as a two-lens rear setup that includes wide and ultra-wide cameras and, for the first time in any Apple device, a sophisticated LiDAR sensor that can map your surroundings in 3D. The company also unveiled a new Magic Keyboard accessory designed specifically for this new iPad Pro that features a floating design, backlit keys and a built-in trackpad which lets you perform Multi-Touch gestures to navigate the entire tablet without ever lifting your hand.
