We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple's (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications.

With Apple embracing facial recognition and the TrueDepth Camera, Kuo predicted that he expects Android hardware makers to begin researching and developing facial recognition technology, give up under-display fingerprint recognition technology. However, as Kuo previously saying it will take up to 2.5 years for Android hardware to catch up with the TrueDepth camera.

Apple latest flagship product - iPhone X, The company's first product with a TrueDepth Camera, will be released to the public on November 3. It's unclear when the Cupertino firm plans to introduce new iPad Pro models, but the new devices could come as soon as the first half of 2018.
