iPhone 8 Release Date Bogged Down Due To A Key Feature; Leaked Schematic Suggests Of A Rear Fingerprint Sensor
After Korean conglomerate Samsung fired the first shot with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, it is now Apple's turn to fire back with its equally anticipated iPhone 8. Nevertheless, it may well seem that the latter's flagship smartphone won't make it for a September reveal.
Reports have been going on for quite some time now that the next iteration if the iPhone will be bogged down and won't be unveiled in Apple's September penchant. It is believed that the reason behind it is the Cupertino tech firm is having debacles with a key technology to be introduced by the iPhone 8.
Hence, Apple is faced with a dilemma of either dropping the said technology or delay iPhone 8's launch. It was also reported early on that the company is set to release their banner device donning an OLED display whose fingerprint sensor is lodged into it, according to NetworkWorld.
However, the publication also suggested that the company is getting "low yields on its iPhone 8 display" due to the above-mentioned sensor endeavor that is pretty much difficult to pull off. As a result, rumor mills are now saying that the latest render of the device might see the light of day in October or November, Express noted.
A Leaked schematic of the iPhone 8 has been making rounds online just recently showing the alleged iPhone 8's back panel. It is noticeable that there is a large hole directly at the bottom of the Apple logo that is believed that the company could be releasing the 10th anniversary iPhone with a finger sensor at the posterior portion of the upcoming flagship.
Aside from the bezel less design, it is believed that the iPhone 8 will have a dual camera feature that would cater both virtual and augmented reality. Furthermore, 3D Sensing capabilities are also rumored to go alongside the handset. This is said to fortify the phone's security including payment authorizations through Apple Pay.
