Had Apple been able to bring its in-display fingerprint recognition solution to this year's iPhone model, then it could have been first to market with a seriously cool and innovative feature. Furthermore, ongoing leaks have also backed Apple's future tenth-anniversary iPhone to sport a near-bezel-less OLED display. Apple is also reportedly testing eye scanning technologies. The iPhone 8 will also have upgraded speakers and enhanced stereo sound. If taken as accurate, they confirm that Samsung's latest will feature a fingerprint sensor on the reverse of the the device rather than underneath the display.
The OLED display on the iPhone 8 will house a virtual home button but according to Kuo, that button won't double up as a fingerprint sensor. A person familiar with the product says that it can analyze a person's face and unlock the iPhone 8 within a few hundred milliseconds.
Recent rumors have suggested that the iPhone 8 may not feature a fingerprint sensor integrated into the display.
According to the report, the Cupertino giant is testing a new security feature that will allow the upcoming iPhone to unlock the screen and authenticate the user utilising 3D facial recognition. Analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co. and other firms said earlier this year that a 3-D sensor would likely be included in the next iPhone.
Will the new selfie camera on the iPhone 8 be secure enough to let you unlock the device through facial recognition instead of fingerprint ID? Rumours have circulated saying Apple will build the sensor into the screen itself, but now one analyst has poured scorn on that.
Lastly, KGI claims that the phones will be unveiled in September, but the iPhone 8 will be available much later, with supply constraints going well into 2018. The Lightning port will be on board, but Apple will also embed a USB Type-C power delivery circuit for better-charging speeds. Shipments for the trio will probably be in the 80 to 85 million range, with there being an equal split between the OLED and LCD options.style="text-align: center;"
