Apple's next iPhone could have a much more powerful front-facing camera with a 3-D sensor, according to KGI Securities' top Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, cited by technology blog 9to5Mac.

The overhauled camera could enable facial recognition and iris recognition, 9to5Mac reported, citing Kuo's research. Kuo said Apple is far ahead of Google's Android in terms of 3-D algorithms, according to 9to5Mac.
