With just a little more than two weeks before iPhone X preorders kickoff on Friday, Oct. 27, production of the handset has reportedly taken a big step up.
Producing parts for the TrueDepth camera still seem to be a bottleneck.
According to Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang (via StreetInsider) production is now 400,000 units per week, up from 100,000 previously.
The production increase comes as suppliers are still facing issue with parts of the TrueDepth camera. In a separate report from Nikkei Asian Review, says that the issue seems to be with the part of the dot projector previously dubbed “Romeo.”
Dot projectors are part of the transmitting “Romeo” module. A receiving module has been called “Juliet.”
A big part of the new iPhone, the TrueDepth camera powers the Face ID recognition feature, animoji, and Portrait Mode selfies.
Starting at $999, the iPhone X will officially arrive on Friday, Nov. 3.
