rear touch id a real possibility on the next apple iphone

As you can see above, the would-be device features minimal bezels on all sides of the screen. It also includes a dual camera system and rear flash stacked in the vertical position. You’ll find the rear Touch ID just below the Apple logo.It’s impossible to determine the validity of these designs, of course. Even if they were proven true, the schematics don’t mean this is the final design for the iPhone 8.As 9to5Mac explains:This is to say that all the design choices in the schematics shown here are not necessarily locked down. We’ve been hearing a lot about the Touch ID home button, Apple is apparently juggling different designs with the aim to have the fingerprint sensor integrated into the display, under the glass.If this is the case, EVT03 is likely a fallback design, ready in reserve, w

purported iphone 8 schematics show ‘bezel-less’ front, rear touch id, same thinn

In what is the first supposed leak of ‘real’ iPhone 8 technical schematics, an image posted to Weibo today claims to show technical drawings for the next-generation iPhone straight from Foxconn. The drawings depict an iPhone 8 front and back with minimal bezels on the left and right sides of the screen. Compared to an iPhone 7, the top and bottom bezels are also significantly smaller.On the back, the dual camera system and rear flash is stacked vertically in the top-left corner, with a gap for a Touch ID fingerprint sensor below the Apple logo. The image is labelled with dimensions for the chassis, which are comparable to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 — despite the significantly larger screen …The best, strongest, Lightning cables ... buy braided cables hereAs shown in the table, this is supposedl

With all the rumors swirling around the iPhone 8, this schematic that's been leaked looks awfully interesting… Join the discussion on our forums and let us know what you think!Every time a new iPhone launches, there's speculation over every little, teeny-tiny detail: What does it look like? What's changed on the inside? How much is it going to cost? WHAT COLORS ARE THERE GOING TO BE?!While it's hard to make a judgment on a phone that hasn't actually been released yet, we're lucky enough to have some leakers who like to, well, leak – hence one of our latest discussions in the forums:James Falconer04-27-2017 09:07 AM

sketchy report suggests iphone 8 will be named ‘iphone edition’, touch id moved

Many features of the iPhone 8 have been well documented at this point, with a general consensus on a 5.8-inch OLED screen on a chassis with almost no front bezel, along with wireless charging, 3D-sensing front camera and much more.However, the ‘bezel-less frame’ has left one rather big open question. What happens to the Touch ID sensor? There have been murmurs of Apple integrating the fingerprint sensor below the display glass. This sounds cutting-edge and modern, but has not been well substantiated. A report coming out today suggests a far less exciting possibility for the Touch ID sensor …The best, strongest, Lightning cables ... buy braided cables hereiDropNews is second-hand reporting a source from Foxconn, who has apparently seen a late stage iPhone 8 prototype. The source says that w

report: iphone 8 to start mass production in september, featuring apple-custom ‘

Digitimes is today reporting that Apple has developed a custom fingerprint sensor replacement for Touch ID, which will allow Apple to offer biometric fingerprint recognition in the iPhone 8 — a device that is rumoured to have no bezels at all. The report describes the component as a ‘built-in’ sensor which very much implies that it is integrated into the screen.Rather than use Synaptic or Qualcomm technology, Apple will reportedly be building its own system using Authentec algorithms and Privaris glass tech. Strangely, the report also says that the iPhone 8 will not go into mass production until September …Philips Hue HomeKit Siri LightsUsually, flagship iPhone models need months of leeway in production in order to accommodate the mass demand the devices bring; Apple usually sells 15 milli

comment: i don’t believe apple is dumb enough to move the touch id sensor to the

The iPhone 8 reports to date mostly point to Apple embedding the Home button and a new type of fingerprint sensor into the display itself, as a way to lose most of the ‘chin’ of the device. Today, however, the sketchiest of reports suggests that the company will instead move the existing Touch ID sensor to the rear of the phone.The report mixes this in with a raft of things we’ve heard before. Glass backs, vertical cameras (which would be horizontal when used in the more common landscape mode) and iPhone Edition naming are all things that have been reported previously. So while iDropNews would like us to believe that its unspecified ‘insider’ has revealed a whole bunch of new things, the report is actually just a mish-mash of earlier rumors coupled to one piece of supposedly new informatio

new report shows the iphone 8 launch date could push past september

Citing industry sources, the report out of Taiwan notes:Apple has selected neither Synaptics’ Natural ID touch fingerprint sensor nor Qualcomm’s Sense ID fingerprint technology for its new OLED iPhones, and decided to use its own Authentec algorithm combined with Privaris glass identification technology to redesign a new fingerprint ID solution, according to industry sources.Apple acquired Authentec in 2012, while its acquisition of Privaris happened in 2015. The former’s fingerprint sensor technology is already used on Apple’s Touch ID, while the Privaris purchase gave Apple dozens of patents relating to fingerprint and touchscreen technology.Digitimes claims that the new fingerprint ID on the iPhone 8 will push the start of production on the device into September. The same report says th

the iphone 8 bottleneck that could delay its launch

According to Cowen and Company’s Timothy Arcuri, yield issues remain for Cupertino’s next flagship device due to production difficulties with the new Touch ID.In a note to investors, the analyst writes:For the 5.8-inch OLED version, the biggest bottleneck remains integrating an under-glass fingerprint sensor into the display— the current yield rate of Apple’s in-house AuthenTec solution remains low and AAPL seems unwilling to use other vendors’ products.It’s rumored that the iPhone 8 (or “iPhone Edition“) will be the first Apple handset not to include a physical home button. Instead, the smartphone may introduce a “function area” built into the glass.According to Arcuri, if yields don’t improve, Apple could be left with three choices:The first option, which he admits is unlikely is to ditc

analyst: iphone 8 fingerprint sensor integrated into screen facing low productio

According to one analyst, Apple is facing a significant bottleneck in the production of the bezel-less iPhone 8. As the device’s front is expected to be mostly screen (and almost no bezel), the Touch ID sensor is being re-engineered.Cowen and Company’s Timothy Arcuri is claiming that yields of a new fingerprint sensor that would be integrated into the iPhone 8 screen are low (via AppleInsider) and that Apple may consider other less-exciting designs if the production problems cannot be solved.The best, strongest, Lightning cables ... buy braided cables hereRumors suggest Apple will debut three new iPhone devices in 2017. One device is purported to be a major radical redesign, featuring a 5.8 inch OLED display, larger battery, 3D camera, wireless charging, and bezel-less front, plus two iter

apple iphone prototypes down to 2 finalists, which one’s best?

As numerous reports in recent days have suggested, Apple is likely down to two iPhone 8 candidates. The more innovative of the two includes a front-facing, virtual Touch ID beneath the display. The other device, let’s call it “Plan B,” has a physical Touch ID on the back of the device right below the Apple logo.Once you move past the placement of the Touch ID and how it’s designed, both handsets are rumored to be very similar, with each including:A 5.8-inch OLED displayMade mostly of glass on both sides, surrounded by a metal frameWireless chargingThe same dimensions as the current iPhone modelsInvisible” front-facing camera hidden underneath the display.Which model should Apple choose?The only reason Apple’s even considering Plan B is the continued production bottlenecks for the first ver

comment: could apple be left with no choice but to do the wrong thing with the i

The last time a sketchy report suggested that Apple was planning to move the Touch ID sensor to the rear of the iPhone 8, I wrote an opinion piece saying that I didn’t believe Apple was dumb enough to do it. I set out the four reasons I didn’t expect it to happen.Alongside multiple reports of a Touch ID sensor embedded in the screen, and supporting patents for the required technology, I felt there were two reasons in particular to doubt the idea …NordVPNApple is the ultimate PR machine. If there were persistent rumors about its flagship iPhone model introducing an exciting technological development, and the reality was instead a boring, low-tech approach used by pretty much every Android brand out there, it would want to dispel those rumors to avoid disappointment. It would be quietly tipp

iphone 8 touch id troubles may stall apple’s oled plans

The anticipated ‘iPhone 8‘ with an OLED display has one big thing getting in its way, and that’s the Touch ID fingerprint sensor — at least according to an analyst whose research note recently became public. According to that note, the 5.8-inch iPhone, which is currently being referred to as the ‘iPhone 8,’ will have an edge-to-edge OLED panel, and Apple has to figure out how to embed the Touch ID beneath it. If an adequate solution isn’t found relatively soon, the company may be forced to shake things up and change the position of this sensor.iPhone 8 may have curved OLED and USB-CSuch information comes from MacRumors, which reports that it has received the info from a note by analyst Timothy Arcuri from Cowen and Company.

Ostensibly, Apple’s new flagship iPhone will include many advanced features to justify that higher pricing tier; bezel-less display, integrated fingerprint sensor, and wireless charging to name a few.Today, Digitimes is reporting that the 3D Touch module in the OLED iPhone will cost $15, an increase of 60% over existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. This supports the idea that the iPhone 8 will come at a premium, as Apple will have to increase prices to retain its margins …Buy Beautiful Leather & Wood iPhone 7 CasesSpecifically, Digitimes says that the OLED iPhone will use a thin film tou

galaxy s8 fingerprint scanner becomes a home button with this app

Almost all smartphones these days that have a fingerprint sensor hides it under the home button. In other words, in most cases the home button and fingerprint sensor are in a single spot. The Galaxy S8, however, doesn’t have the convenience, which made it rather awkward, if not annoying for some users. Fortunately, Android’s openness and developer community have yielded Fingertouch, an open source utility that turns the rear fingerprint scanner into a capacitive home button, but with a catch.If we give credence to the rumors and insider tips, Samsung never planned on having a fingerprint sensor at the back of the Galaxy S8. It’s original plan was to have it underneath the display, most likely right where the always-on virtual home button is right. But due to circumstances, that never came

Indeed, early Galaxy S8 rumors suggested that would be the case.But the project “ran out of time,” said sources, and Samsung was forced to settle for mounting the sensor on the back of the device.The location of the sensor – right beside the camera – has been revealed in multiple leaks, and reactions have been controversial, to say the least.
