BEIJING - Austrian chip maker AMS, which makes an optical sensing part for the new 3-D sensor module used in Apple's iPhone X, on Tuesday dismissed speculation that the new facial recognition component is stuck in a production bottleneck.

"I am not nervous at all about it," AMS Chief Executive Alexander Everke told analysts during an earnings call when he was asked if he saw any issue with the production of the 3-D sensor. "We see very strong performance in Q4. I see very strong performance in 2018," Everke said.
