Apple launches a variety of new products unveiled, face recognition will stimulate the IR LED market

Dec 28, 2017

First in the launch of the Apple Watch 3 new cellular network data support, with the support of the cellular network, users can always experience real-time communication, and also through Apple Music to hear 40 million songs radio and so on, the Siri function is also updated, can achieve voice chat function, so do not need to rely on mobile phone. 

Apple TV 4K has two improvements, supports HDR technology +4K display technology, and supports Dolby 4K projectors, which are also more vivid and bright in UI design. 

The front of the iphone 8 series, like the previous iphone 7 Series, has no change in interface and key layout, even after the design of the rear lens is the same as in the previous generation. iphone 8 is 4.7 inches, iphone 8 Plus is 5.5 inches, and this time the biggest change is back to the iphone 4S era glass back-shell design, of course, wireless charging and waterproof and dustproof support. 

In design, the iphone 8 (4.7 inches) with the iphone 8 Plus (5.5 inches) uses the front and rear double glass material, and uses the aviation grade aluminum material, the glass firmness is higher, and has the brand-new Retina display screen, greatly enhances the color display, as well as true Tone display ensures color registration. On the processor, the iphone 8 and the iphone 8 plus use a six core A11 bionic processor, which is 30% higher than the A10 strong 25%,gpu and a power loss of 50%. 

In camera, iphone 8 uses a 12 million-pixel lens, with a new CMOS, supports optical stabilization, better quality, better portrait mode, where the iphone 8 Plus also provides a F1.8 aperture dual camera, in addition to the internal delivery of the ISP also enhanced image processing capabilities, photos in the dark light environment will be better than before, video recording on the film to support 1080p/240hz refresh, the screen smoother. In addition, the iphone 8 can achieve more functions in AR augmented reality, especially in the area of photographing, and can also play AR games. 

Finally, of course, as one of the more thing iphone X (Ten), Apple says it is the smartphone (the future of the smartphone) for the next 10 years. The iphone x's overall upgrade to the design and operation experience is a big surprise compared to the iphone 8, which uses a double-sided glass material, using a super Retina screen, Screen size of 5.8-inch screen, using OLED material screen, screen resolution of 2436*1125, pixel density of 458PPi, and the use of "abnormity screen" design, the front is almost all screen. Using the A11 processor, the built-in neural engine to implement the iphone X Face ID feature, regardless of wearing glasses and hats, the same hairstyle does not affect the unlock, so the iphone x also canceled the physical Touch ID home button, and with the facial ID to replace ID will support Apple Pay with third-party payments.

Iphonex's FaceId is not the same as the facial recognition of a typical mobile phone, and Faceid,iphone can also detect whether the user's eyeball is watching the iphone's display, and Iphonex also has 3D sensing capabilities. Iphonex's "bangs" include structural light transmitters, structured light receivers, distance sensors, ambient light sensors, front-facing cameras, and so on. The structured light emitter module consists of 6 components, from 10 different suppliers, including active alignment devices, filters, wafer optics, diffractive optical elements, Vcsel and epitaxial wafers; the structured light receiver module includes about six suppliers of four components: infrared lenses, filters, CIS and CMOS image sensors (1.4 million pixels) These two sensors can accurately identify the stereo structure of the face, and it is impossible to unlock it with a single photo.

There are more than 3 million identification points at the top of the Iphpne x front, and also can be identified at night, by scanning the face information to carry out facial recognition unlock, in the normal mode of operation, as long as the edge of the box on the border can be paged out Siri, and then row will be able to exhale a multitasking interface. 

In addition, Apple also launched a Animoji expression, the expression can learn facial movements, made dynamic expression, and then sent to friends, making more lively and interesting, but also combined with the AR augmented reality function, so that self-portraits, video, live more lively and interesting. 

The camera aspect of the iphone x is equipped with a dual 12 million megapixel wide-angle lens with a f1.8/f2.4 aperture and supports dual-optical stabilization with quad-led truetone Flash and AR augmented reality technology.

 Smart phone import iris/face recognition, 3D sensing technology and other new functions, will stimulate the infrared LED market a new wave of explosive growth, infrared LED, infrared laser and optical sensing related manufacturers will also benefit. According to the "2017 IR LED/infra-red laser and sensing component Application Market report" released by the state-led research Center (ledinside), 2017 infrared LED and infrared light laser components in the iris and face recognition application market size will reach 145 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to about 998 million yuan), to 2025 will be up to 827 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to about 5.69 billion yuan), 2017-2025 years compound growth rate of up to 24%.
