Big surprise in Apple's new iPhone

New     Report     Shows     the     'iPhone     8'      Launch     Date     Could     Push     Past     September

It won't come as a surprise if the release date of the device is pushed to October. In addition to the new OLED iPhone, Apple is said to be releasing two more iPhone models which will have LCD displays.

Would you be willing to wait an extra month or longer for Apple's iPhone 8?

Should Apple opt for this new design, it will mean that the display will almost cover the entire face of the iPhone, leaving no room for a physical home button.

Here's what we think we know about the fabled "OLED iPhone", which analysts have been calling the "iPhone 8" or "iPhone X". It will be the first time Apple will be using this surprisingly unorthodox type of technology in smartphones. However, because Apple will incorporate this new and young technology to the iPhone 8, the phone's production will start in September. They also said Apple may use ultrasound for part of the biometric recognition now handled by fingerprint scanning. Instead, it will use its very own Authentech algorithm and the glass identification technology of Privaris in creating a new kind of fingerprint ID technology.

Big surprise in Apple's new iPhone

Some reports have suggested that Apple's technology would allow you to tap anywhere on the screen to activate Touch ID, while others have said that Apple is planning a "function area" in its screen that would house the Touch ID features.

Digitimes claims that the new fingerprint ID on the iPhone 8 will push the start of production on the device into September.

Adding fuel to the fire of the previously mentioned scenario, DigiTimes cites sources who indicated that the iPhone 7s handsets will enter mass production within the usual July timeframe.

The report also suggests that Apple's new fingerprint technology for the iPhone 8 will be developed at TSMC's 12-inch wafer line along with 65nm process technology. This is the same company that produces the microchips in the upcoming iPhones.
