The Wall Street Journal reiterates the difficulties of production of the iPhone X: The Romeo and Juliet modules have been difficult to manufacture


We took several days reading opinions from several investors where we are told that the reason why Apple will not have many iPhone X available for the day of its launch (November 3) is the set of sensors and cameras that Apple has called TrueDepth, and they are housed next to the headset and a microphone in that tab that we can find at the top of the screen.
Today it is nothing less than the Wall Street Journal that tells us the same story, giving some details that until now we did not know, as that the exact component that Apple is costing to get and that is delaying the assembly of more units is the camera front for infrared, one of two that has this system TrueDepth, specifically the one that is responsible for obtaining the visible image only when the infrared light emits a scene. It is the camera that makes Face ID work, and allows to use it even in the dark, at least for the human eye, unable to see that type of light. This infrared camera is called Romeo , and the spot projector that sits just the other side is called Juliet .

It seems to be Juliet, that emitter of light that projects an array of more than 30,000 points whose position between them allows the system to determine the profile of an object or face of a person in three dimensions, which is proving to be more difficult to construct of the expected, making it impossible to get all the units that were wanted, although the other component of the camera sensitive to infrared light has also given problems. According to the WSJ, the production of these two components now works better, but still it is quite possible that the iPhone X is available in very few units by the end of the year. These two components could have created a bottleneck that only now begins to widen.
When from so many sources tell us the same rumor, and when one of those sources is the very reliable Wall Street Journal, we can almost give it as a fact. The iPhone X will begin to show shipping times in a month or more, prompting users to wait for December at the earliest as soon as a few minutes pass from October 27th, day on which reservations for this new Apple smartphone will begin .
