Apple reportedly gets out of contract for quantum dot iPhone camera sensor

“The CFQD technology enables better low light control compared to the current silicon that is claimed to be better than anything”

Apple is pretty much confirmed to launch three new iPhones later this year, and if rumours are to be believed, they are likely to retain the same design but with upgraded internals including a more powerful chipset, bigger battery capacities, and more. Now, according to a report from The Telegraph, Apple has reportedly scrapped a $22 million contract with British tech firm for advanced iPhone camera sensor. Nanoco, a quantum dot technology firm, along with its subsidiaries specialises in “research, development, manufacture, and licensing of cadmium and heavy-metal-free quantum dots (CFQD), and semiconductor nanomaterials for use in various commercial applications.”

Unlike the quantum tech used in TVs for displays, Apple intended a quantum dots camera sensor. The CFQD technology enables better lowlight control compared to the current silicon that was supposed to be better than anything. It’s possible that Apple let go of the idea considering it would be too costly to implement such a technology on a large scale. Either way, we’ll never know what Apple intended to do and what it could have achieved with these sensors at its disposal.

As for this year’s iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max, they are said to be powered by the A13 chipset, pack triple rear cameras with a standard sensor, telephoto lens, and a wide-angle snapper. The former is likely to feature a 5.8-inch display, while the latter is expected to get a relatively larger 6.5-inch screen. Other features include reverse wireless charging ability, an 18W fast-charging adaptor in the box, and could pack larger battery capacities.
