Apple iPhone 8 is supposed to launch this September, along with iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Now reports have indicated that a 3D sensor module will be part of the iPhone 8 series, and will allow for the smartphone to be unlocked via face recognition. Reports also claim the Touch ID under the OLED display might not take place given Apple is struggling to get accurate results with the same. Here’s a quick look at everything we know about the Apple iPhone 8 based on the latest leaks.Apple iPhone 8 No Touch ID
It looks like iPhone 8 could see the end of the Touch ID. Now earlier reports have claimed iPhone 8 would not see the end of the fingerprint scanner, and that Apple had perfected the technology for embedding the scanner under the display. However, Ming Chi-Kuo’s predictions claim this might not happen. In his report, he has said the fingerprint scanner won’t be embedded inside the display as it requires a newer, improved form of technology for the display, and given the accuracy is not assured, Apple might give this a miss.Apple iPhone 8 Design, OLED display
Apple iPhone 8 will sports a glass casing, though the iPhone 7s series will likely stick with the aluminium design. According to the Bloomberg report, “Apple is also testing a new glass casing, steel edges, and a larger display that fits into a smaller overall body.” The report also says the steel frame is so thin that the front and back glass “looks continuous,” and Apple will add an edge-to-edge display.The latest report from KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo confirms three screen sizes: 5.8-inches, 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches. The 5.8-inch iPhone will have a bezel-less OLED display. Kuo also says this phone will have the highest screen-to-body ratio seen on any smartphone, ever. However, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s Plus will continue with the LCD display.Apple iPhone 8 processor, specifications
According to the Bloomberg report, iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus phones will have 10 nn chipset design, just like we’ve seen on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors. Kuo’s report has indicated 2GB RAM on the standard iPhone 7s, while the iPhone 7s Plus will have 3GB RAM. He also says that 64GB and 256GB will be the new storage options on the 2017 iPhones, suggesting the 32GB version of the iPhone could be done away with entirely.Apple iPhone 8 launch data, price and availability
Some reports have claimed Apple iPhone 8 will have a hefty price tag, starting at $1000. This increased cost could be due to the OLED display. Another report from UBS has claimed the iPhone 8 will start at $870 for the base variant, and go up all the way to $1070 for the highest storage option. Apple iPhone 8 with OLED display is expected to have a limited supply after launch, thanks to the display. Apple has apparently placed orders for 80-85 million shipments of the 2017 iPhones, and given this is the 10th anniversary iPhone, the demand is expected to be high for this smartphone.
