Apple share price after an analyst at Rosenblatt painted an unfavorable picture for sales of iPhone XI, as well as a drop in growth in revenue generated by the services of ‘Apple.
In the process, the analysis firm JP Morgan, also delivers a new, more optimistic predictive report concerning the iPhone range next year, with four new models .
According to analysts at Jp Morgan, among the four new models of 2020, there would be 3 OLED models in 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches . They also predict, that these iPhone would integrate a 5G modem chip , as well as a 3D sensor on the back of the iPhone.
This new sensor at the rear would be a laser telemetry system, which would use a “travel time” approach, with the projection of a laser ricocheting on nearby objects in order to calculate and create a 3D image of the environment of the user.
This would greatly improve the accuracy of augmented reality with the iPhone’s rear camera. As a reminder, since iOS 11 with the ARKit framework, developers can offer apps and games with augmented reality.
ARKit works rather well with flat surfaces for placing objects on it, however it has more difficulty with vertical surfaces, such as doors or walls, due to the lack of depth perception.
This 3D camera system, which was mentioned by Bloomberg last year and now by JP Morgan, would solve these problems and transform the iPhone into a real augmented reality tool, which would be more precise in many cases. .
JP Morgan estimates that Apple would sell around 195 million iPhones in 2020, better than estimates of 180 million units in 2019.
Finally concerning the fourth iPhone in the 2020 range, JP Morgan expects Apple to offer a more affordable , smaller model about the size of the iPhone 8, and with certain technologies absent such as 5G or OLED so to keep a price in a “low” range.
