IPhone X Suppliers Still Struggling With 3D Facial Recognition Sensors

Face ID

The iPhone X, pronounced "iPhone Ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone. According to a new report, the suppliers are still facing issues with this component. This is seconded by Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting who agrees that the production issue is coming from the dot projector. Pu has revised his estimates down from 40 million units to 36 million units produced this year.

Ever since the iPhone X was announced, it has consistently been reported that the handset will be in short supply for several months after it's released.

All that said, another tech executive that spoke to Nikkei relayed that Apple is still gearing up to begin iPhone X mass production in the next week or two, with shipments slated to begin later this month. The current launch date is scheduled for a week after the start of pre-orders, Friday November 3rd.
