It is yet not known whether Apple is going to eliminate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor for facial recognition or not. But, there have been speculations that the company will be moving Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the back of iPhone 8, like Samsung Galaxy S8. So, we can expect to see a new look with slimmer bezel, no home button and a powerful face-recognition feature.
The edge-to-edge screen on iPhone 8 is expected as the code found in the same HomePod smart speaker firmware. The code also suggests that iPhone 8 would have a 6.5-inch display; conflicting the previous reports saying 5.8-inch display. It is expected to ship with pixel density of 412 ppi.
Apple iPhone 8 is also expected to feature wireless charging, a rating of IP67 or better and an A11 chipset. Most analysts are expecting its price to be most expensive ever in the range of $1100-$1200.
