According to Digitimes’ sources, Himax Technologies will indeed be among the component suppliers delivering parts for the OLED iPhone 8.
Himax will provide the glass component design, featuring chip-on-glass (COG) technology, which will fit into Lumentum’s 3D-sensing module for the iPhone 8.
The front-facing camera will have a VCSEL (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser)-based DOE (diffractive optical elements) that will support both 3D-sensing and 3D-modeling capabilities.
Thus, the iPhone 8’s cameras might beat the Galaxy S8 when it comes to 3D capabilities that can enable augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) fe..
