Apple is reportedly planning to incorporate Time of Flight (ToF) 3D sensing rear camera system in next year’s iPhone models.

Earlier there were rumours that a ToF sensor might be introduced as part of the 2019 line-up of iPhones but the sensor would just not be ready in time this year, news portal GSMArena reported on Thursday.

In addition, the Cupertino-based company is also planning to use Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) in the cameras of the 2020 iPhones.

VCSEL is a key component of Apple’s TrueDepth camera that also powers features like Face ID, Animoji and Portrait mode selfies.

Next year, Apple is expected to launch four iPhone models with significant specification upgrades, media reports suggest.
