iPhone 8 may have STMicroelectronics facial recognition tech, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum notes there has been speculation that perhaps there will be component shortages preventing Apple (AAPL) from launching the iPhone 8 in late September. The speculation has surrounded finger print sensors, AMOLD panels and now 3D sensing components, the firm says, pointing out that most believe STMicroelectronics (STM) could have 2 sensors in iPhone 8.

The firm believes STMicroelectronics has already started to produce and stockpile parts for the Apple 8 and does not expect any issues on its side. Craig-Hallum notes that Samsung (SSNLF) officials have stated they will also put facial recognition in the upcoming Galaxy 8, which should be supplied by STMicroelectronics.
