iPhone 8 Latest Leaks Confirm Its Stunning Feature
The latest iPhone 8 leak indicates that Apple has finally resolved its longstanding problem. The next flagship smartphone from the tech giant will have the Touch ID fingerprint scanner embedded in its display.
Mac Rumors cited Economic Daily News, a Chinese Publication, as the source of the rumor. According to EDN, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. or TSMC confirmed the news to them. The long-time Apple partner supposedly confirmed the success of finally integrating the fingerprint scanner into the iPhone 8 display during the TSMC 2017 NA Technology Symposium held on Thursday in Taipei.
According to the sources, TSMC talked about the different design changes done with the display of the iPhone 8. One OLED design in particular supposedly did not come with a physical home button. This is highly indicative of "an optical fingerprint sensor to enable authentication directly on the screen."
The leak also mentioned that the iPhone 8 and likely other future iPhones will have infrared image sensors that will help "enhance the functionality of the high-pixel camera." This new feature will also be the key to the iPhone 8 to have augmented reality capability, something that has been rumored before.
Among the other redesigns discussed at the TSMC convention included the addition of biometric authentication features like iris and face recognition. The added security features will be possible courtesy of a high-pixel front camera which is also said to have 3D capabilities.
ValueWalk reported that well-known leakster Benjamin Geskin got some inside scoop as to when the iPhone 8 will be announced. Geskin is a popular Twitter user and designer known for his iPhone renders that are more likely to be accurate than not. His latest Apple-related tweets claimed that either the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 7s will be introduced on September 17. The tweet also mentioned that the Apple smartphone will be made available on September 25. He followed that tweet up with another one saying the information he got was not 100 percent confirmed yet.
