There has been no dearth in the leaks about the iPhone 8, with its releasing date coming closer. Among the most recent leaks, the most highlighted one is that Apple might ditch the Touch ID to replace it with a 3D facial recognition feature. Moreover, another report about the iPhone’s front camera is that Apple might give a miss to wireless charging, but the addition of the 3D laser scanner in it will surely add to the customers’ quality and quantity, that might not be happy with the Touch ID’s reliability.
iPhone 8 To Support 3D Laser Scanner for Facial Recognition Feature
The addition of the 3D Laser Scanner for facial recognition feature in iPhone 8 was confirmed by many analysts and technicians. According to Hall, via MacRumors, “One obvious and potentially most compelling use would be AR/VR experiences in which the user’s hands and other real world objects are being scanned and integrated into a field of view provided by the iPhone mounted into a Google Daydream-like headset. This would open up many interesting entertainment and gaming experiences not available today and might give Apple something extra in an AR/VR accessory compared to Google and others,”
Moreover, JP Morgan analyst Harlan Sur in a separate note claimed that Apple has been working with the Broadcom to come up with the wireless technology. He further adds that this would take roughly two years now to be implemented. Additionally, Kuo said the iPhone 8 is going to have a 5.8-inch display with a 2800×1242 pixels resolution that fits in a 4.7-inch iPhone frame. The display is also tipped to sport a ‘function area’, making the actual display resolution 2436×1125 pixels.
With these claims, iPhone 8 is surely going to be the finest flagship of the year, but other features of this phone are yet to be confirmed.
