New iPhone 8 Design Leak Shows How Will Apple Render The Device
Somehow, Apple fans have gotten a little taste of what's next from iPhone this year. Thanks to leaks and rumors that are all over the internet, the anticipated iPhone 8 is as popular as the existing LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. Today, a new iPhone 8 design leak shows how will Apple render the device.
Just like the new flagship smartphones from Apple's rivals, the most awaited iPhone 8 is expected to feature a brand new device design. This update might include an improved screen-to-body ratio, which should be more than 83 percent. In order to have a greater ratio compared to Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+, Apple certainly had to remove its standard design of having a home button on the bottom of the phone's front part.
Apple has been working for ages to find a plan to embed its Touch ID fingerprint scanner into the iPhone's display, according to BGR. Fans already know that it's going to happen very soon. Now, the question is whether or not it's going to be seen on iPhone 8 and whether or not it's going to happen this year.
iPhone's Function Area
The new concept images of Apple's iPhone 8 design leak show a mobile phone with a portion at the bottom that's being described as the iPhone's "function area" and no physical home button. That designated area reportedly contains a virtual home button and probably a display-embedded fingerprint sensor. However, the function area could also be used to manage music and videos the same way MacBook Pro's Touch Bar work.
According to Business Insider, the idea of having the function area on the iPhone has some credibility. In fact, the renowned KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, first predicted it in February. For the record, Kuo has an impressive track record for accurately and precisely predicting features on upcoming devices, especially Apple devices.
Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 will have a 5.8-inch screen as presented on the fresh CAD drawing design leak. However, Kuo believes that 5.15 inches of that display will be available in the traditional sense. The remaining space will be dedicated to the "function area."
