Apple’s next iPhone has been on everyone’s lips for months with most rumors claiming that the Cupertino Company will launch up to three iPhone models. According to sources, Apple will be integrating its Touch ID scanner into the display of the high-end iPhone 8. This means that there will be no physical home button. Instead, Apple might use a virtual home button, with front-facing camera on top and an optical fingerprint reader being built directly into the display.
Several reports in recent months have claimed that Apple is dealing with manufacturing issues related to integrating its optical fingerprint sensor beneath the OLED panel of the premium iPhone 8. Besides, tech analysts also say that the issues may lead to the removal of fingerprint scanner on this year’s iPhone. However, rumors say that the company will move the scanner to the rear of the premium iPhone.
Many reports say that Apple will debut augmented reality features on this year’s premium iPhone. Sources say that the high-end OLED-equipped iPhone will sport 3D sensors for AR technology and facial recognition system. Besides, the use of sensors allows users to take 3D selfies. Noticeably, the premium iPhone 8 will have 18.5:9 aspect ratio display, just like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus debuted in April. Tech analysts say that the new display ratio allows for better multitasking support and helps display more content.
The premium iPhone 8 is also expected to come with a 5.8 inch display, just like the Samsung Galaxy S8. The premium iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone model to come with OLED display. Apple is sourcing OLED panels from multiple suppliers worldwide. Earlier this year, Samsung Display reportedly secured a deal from Apple to provide the company with millions of OLED units. The iPhone 8 will debut at this year’s annual September event alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
