One of the manufacturers of facial and iris scanning modules has confirmed that in the second half of this year it will deliver a significant portion of its smartphone portfolio. The order recipient is most likely Apple.
Largan Precision is a company that manufactures iris and facial iris scanning modules. We recently learned that in the second half of this year it will deliver a large supply to one customer. The name of the final recipient has not officially fallen , but it is not hard to guess from the available information that Apple is most likely to talk. It appears that the order received will increase Largan's employment by 4500 employees and the opening of a new factory in Taiwan itself. The information indicates that the implementation deadlines coincide with the period of mass production of this year's iPhone. Although Largan did not say directly that Apple would be the recipient, analyst Jeff Pu of Yuanta Investment Consulting believes that it is the Cupertino concern that will launch new modules. According to him, it will be the only company in the world that will introduce smartphones with such advanced functionality this year. A few months ago, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would implement a module responsible for three-dimensional face scanning. Other reports pointed to not only similar information, but also suggested the arrival of a camera capable of taking 3D pictures . By combining all the gossips into one you should take note of the latest news from Largan. It looks like everything is starting to look and the iPhone 8 is hidden behind us less and less secrets.
