Apple may relocate the iPhone 8 fingerprint reader

Posted April 20, 2017

As we come closer to the likely launch date for the new iPhones in September, the reports and rumors will probably become less erratic.

In addition to this, it has been also disclosed that the upcoming iPhone will probably flaunt a rear dual-camera setup with vertically arranged lenses along with iSight modules. Apple will still be using Sony mobile image sensors for their smartphones as their current generation models.

As well as the edge to edge display there will also be an improved dual camera and no home button, which instead could be embedded into the screen, similar to the setup found on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Netflix about to cross 100-million subscriber mark
The online streaming giant also confirms that it's made a deal with Sandler to release four more films exclusively with Netflix. But if it wants to keep investors happy, the company will eventually have to improve its relatively low profit margin.

This is quite an interesting turn of rumors. The first two IPS screens were already used but Bloomberg did not confirm if the design will be unlike the present "iPhone 7" and "7 Plus".

Bloomberg's sources have claimed that for the premium model, Apple is looking to create a phone with a screen that nearly completely covers the front of the device, with its display therefore being roughly the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus but crammed onto a handset the size of the iPhone 7. This device has also led consumers to purchase other Apple devices like the Apple Watch and iPad.

KK Sneak Leak also suggested that Apple is yet to decide on the name for the new device, claiming that the iPhone 8, iPhone X and iPhone Edition are possibilities.

Citing unnamed "people familiar with the matter", Bloomberg today noted that Apple has ordered around 100 million OLED display screens for its new iPhones from Samsung because "other suppliers won't be ready to supply mass quantities until later".

KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo has said Apple will adopt glass for the 2017 iPhone more than a year ago.

For now, the sources say the prototypes have been designed as an homage of sorts to previous versions of the iPhone, specifically to the 2010 iPhone 4 and 2007's original iPhone, compete with dramatic curves and screens that curve into a steel frame. Finally, Apple also has a prototype that packs an aluminum back, and has slightly larger dimensions. However, for Apple to follow this just seems out of place but then again, to increase the total screen real estate of the phone, the tech giant might have no choice but to follow with this design.
