iPhone X is being manufactured at a slower pace than expected, blame ‘Romeo and Juliet’
On November 3rd, we’re expecting the iPhone X to arrive in shelves and stores – but expect that it will be hard to get one, as something is going wrong with its production, particularly confirmed by Wall Street Journal on its recent report, adding more details from this report made by Nikkei Asian Review.
According to those reports, two key components of the iPhone X’s 3D face-scanner, dubbed Romeo and Juliet, are the main issue – the “Romeo” module which projects the infrared dots to map faces, and a “Juliet” module that reads the pattern. The WSJ report claims that Romeo is taking more time to assemble than Juliet, which is causing an bottleneck in supply.
With that said, expect that it’ll be even harder to get one of the new iPhone X’s this year.
