Apple's next-generation 3D iPhone camera could 'reinvent the user experience'
Feb 25 2017
The latest rumors surrounding Apple's highly anticipated next flagship smartphone, the iPhone 8, could be a welcoming change for its loyal followers, according to a report by Forbes.
Rumors are circulating about the possibility of a number of new features that could be included in the iPhone 8, including an OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display, 3-D sensors as well as the elimination of the familiar home button. Last week, the world's most respected Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, claimed that the Touch ID fingerprint sensor would be replaced by a "Function Area" at the bottom of the iPhone 8 display.
The most essential new iPhone 8 features are said to come in the display.
In addition, other speculations suggest that the 5.8-inch AMOLED display is not curved as previously reported due to production yield bottlenecks and drop tests results. Is 3D facial recognition the revolutionary feature you're looking for in the iPhone 8?
Han affirmed that Apple is, in reality, going to go around with OLED displays - a move that will make a mark on LG Display sooner rather than later. With this decision Apple may be bidding adieu to the iPhone's 32 GB variant, which is now the lowest storage option available. According to the TrendForcereport, at least 40 per cent of the new iPhone series will be the high-end iPhone 8. What the report does say is that the iPhone 7S will be more economically priced to compete against other smartphone brands. Apple has a reputation for working on multiple new technologies for its devices, even though not all of them ultimately come to fruition. The larger-capacity iPhone 8 is said to storage 256GB of photos, video and apps.
That could mean Apple doesn't foresee any major spike in iPhone sales in 2017.
Apple's 2017 iPhone line-up is rumoured to be a big one, with this years release marking the company's 10th iPhone release. If the Cupertino-based tech giant adopts it in the iPhone 8, there is a good chance that it could end up as one of the killer features of the upcoming device.
