New iPhone 8 Design Leaked, Claims Touch ID Will Be At The Back
A question that has puzzled the whole internet for months now is, "Where will Apple reposition the Touch ID to achieve an edge-to-edge screen?" Today, a new design leaked and it is claiming that the touch ID will be located at the back of the upcoming iPhone 8. The images also revealed that the mobile device could boast a vertical camera, but it might lack the volume rocker that supposed to sit on the left side.
The leaked image shows an unknown phone that looks like a flattened iPhone 5, but with an extra hole seen beneath the Apple logo. That hole, according to BGR, could be the relocated Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Apple fans are aware that the firm has been working for more than a year to embed its Touch ID sensor beneath the display of its phone, and iPhone 8 was expected to be the first to feature this new tech idea.
Since this is the first time, Apple is said to be having problems in preparing for its new embedded scanner. However, some reports suggested that the tech giant is toying with relocating the Touch ID scanner to the back of the phone. These speculations are just rumors as of now, but if it’s real, it also might just be one of the several designs that Apple was experimenting with.
The leaked image design of a new Apple iPhone, which allegedly reveals chassis of iPhone 8, was shared by Sonny Dickson on Twitter. Aside from the Touch ID thing, it also mentions the dimensions of the Apple device. Going by the illustration, Apple iPhone 8 could be 72.497 mm wide and 149.501 mm tall. According to Indian Express, the leaked image also shows a home button cutout on the back underneath the Apple logo, placement for the power button and a device with no volume key.
