Apple’s iPhone is still many moons away. But the leaks about different features have started appearing across the world. To be true, these leaks are making the forthcoming version of the most successful line of smartphones all the more desirable.
While the next gen handset is expected to come in September, it is no reason for Apple fans to seek as much information about the forthcoming handset as possible.
The latest round of leaks suggest that Cupertino based Apple will embed the Touch ID in the iPhone display itself.
Till now all such efforts had proved rather futile. But now, reports suggest that Apple has overcome this hurdle, and found a solution to successfully embed the Touch ID into the display of iPhone 8.
There were such efforts in the past too. But all such efforts were met with failure. A report in Chinese language Economic Daily News (EDN), via MacRumors, claims that Apple has overcome this hurdle, and found a solution to successfully embed the Touch ID into the display of iPhone 8. EDN quoted sources from Apple supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), who confirmed the development at a technology convention held in Taipei.
It must be kept in mind that this report is not a wild rumor. EDN has a history of leaking information that have proved on the dot in the past. Absence of a home button coupled with a redesigned bezel less edge-to-edge OLED display will further boost the screen size of iPhone 8, something a lot of fans might like.
MacRumor, one of the top Apple blogs says, “If true, news of Apple’s on-screen fingerprint recognition solution will come as a relief to watchers tracking the development of Apple’s “tenth anniversary” edition iPhone”. Further, iPhone 8 could come with an adjustable screen ratio of of 18:5:9 instead of previously rumoured 16:9.
The MacRumor report goes on to add, “In addition to the fingerprint recognition, the sources claimed the new iPhones will also come with “invisible infrared image sensors to enhance the functionality of the high-pixel camera” and to enable augmented reality functions”.
