Apple's much-awaited smartphone iPhone 8 has been doing rounds in the rumor mill for quite some time now. The latest leaks suggest that the front panel will have an edge-to-edge display, with only the forehead left to house the front camera. Also, reports suggest that the TouchID sensor will be placed beneath the display.
Known tipster Benjamin Geskin and SlashLeaks reveal the possible design of the upcoming flagship. The display also is seen expanding to the left and right edges totally. There is no dual selfie camera setup on the front panel. On the rear panel, there is a dual camera that was hinted earlier. Apart from this, there are dual speakers at the bottom edge with a Lightning port in the middle.
According to a recent news, from Economic Daily News, the current Touch ID will be replaced by another system that will work when the user places a finger on the OLED display. The iPhone 8 is expected to feature A11 chip, AR features, and wireless charging as well. Apart from Apple's iPhone, other phone makers are tipped to be working on 5G as major players in the U.S. already like AT&T and Verizon, which means we might expect 5G plans rolling in the next years to complement the new line up of Apple iPhones.
Additionally, according to a source, Apple will indeed remove the home button and integrate Touch ID into the display. More so, next gen iPhone "will also come with invisible infrared image sensors to upgrade the functionality of the high-pixel camera and to allow AR applications." AR is a new long-term play which Apple CEO Tim Cook has already publicly announced and that will become a big focus for the company. Furthermore, the upcoming iPhone 8 with 256 GB variant could come with a price as high as $1,070 on its release date.
