KGI Predicts The Upgraded TrueDepth System On Future iPhones Could Draw More Power

According to well-connect Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone models released in 2019 and later will likely feature an upgraded TrueDepth camera system that it will consume more power, resulting in a need for larger-capacity batteries. Kuo said Apple has technologies at its disposal to develop larger-capacity batteries.

The analyst unsurprisingly expects Apple will use these technologies to continue increasing iPhone battery capacities in 2019 and 2020, as it routinely does, that should result in even longer battery life for future models. KGI also believes Apple will be able to accommodate larger batteries by minimizing other internals like the processor package

Apple capable of designing new system for large-capacity batteries: We believe the adoption of TrueDepth camera for 3D sensing in 2017-18 will create demand for larger-capacity batteries. From 2019, we predict iPhone may adopt upgraded 3D-sensing and AR-related functions, and it will consume more power, further increasing demand for large-capacity batteries. We believe Apple's key technologies, including semiconductor manufacturing processes, system-in-package (SIP), and substrate-like PCB (SLP), will create the required space for larger batteries.

Kuo recently reported that TrueDepth will be expanded to a trio of iPhone models next year, including a new 5.8-inch iPhone X, a larger 6.5-inch model we're calling iPhone X Plus, and a new 6.1-inch mid-range model with an LCD display, and it sounds like the facial system will remain unchanged in 2018.

KGI previously said the second-generation iPhone X could equip with a one-cell L-shaped battery that would provide up to 10 percent additional capacity compared to the two-cell battery in the current iPhone X, which of course could result in slightly longer battery life. While "iPhone X Plus" will retain a two-cell battery design with battery capacity up to 3400 mAh.
