An iPhone 8 3D face-scanner could replace Touch ID

Posted July 04, 2017

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities gave 10 predictions for what Apple might include in its traditional fall smartphone release window, via Street Insider. The company is also testing eye scanning to augment the system, one of the people said. In fact, there will be no Touch ID incorporated into the OLED smartphone's display.

In addition to being used to unlock the iPhone 8, it's said that this 3D face scanner could be used to authenticate payments and launch secure apps. The technology is described as super-speedy, scanning a person's face and unlocking the iPhone in a matter of "a few hundred milliseconds". Samsung has reportedly run into the same issue, as it was unable to fit an integrated scanner in time for release, and introduced the Galaxy S8 with the sensor on the back as a result.

Most rumors have centered around the iPhone 8 featuring a Touch ID sensor that is embedded within the OLED touch display.
