It will take Android competitors two and half years to replicate the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X, according to a new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Previously, KGI estimated competitors would catch up in one to two years; however, after examining Apple's technical demonstrations, it's now thought to take longer.

The camera is said to give Apple a solid technological lead throughout 2018 and 2019 giving KGI 'full confidence' in growth prospects for the iPhone in the high-end market. KGI has lowered its shipping estimates from 40 million to 30-35 million units for 2017; however, it still has a 'positive outlook' on future shipments.

Severe shortages are expected when the iPhone X goes up for pre-order on October 27th. Last month, Apple was said to be producing just 10,000 a day.

I would never give up my G5 for this useless garbage. Unfortunately, apple has really killed any remote interest I had left in their products.

Why would they even want to replicate the camera? It's a useless fad...

Android without a doubt, has been a pitiful OS... let alone how inconsistent is it at implementing new technologies and whatnot. Apple has never been in for shit like: 'Faaaarst!!' Or 'Imma' be a bad boyo with the JavaScript tewlzz' as Android sure as hell does all the time. Doesn't matter if you do it first but poorly, matters doing it right when things fall in place.

More important than that though, who’s the girl with the phone on the other screen?
