Apple Reportedly Having Trouble With Key Feature in Next iPhone

In this scenario, cheaper iPhones would have Touch ID while the flagship model does not as we expect iterative updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus alongside the new design of the iPhone 8.

Although the iPhone 7 sold out within a week of hitting the market, many saw it as nothing more than a refreshed iPhone 6 - which has put some pressure on Apple to impress its users this year. However, more reports indicate the iPhone maker may not be able to do so this year. Google could be equipping the device with a better video recording ability and much revamped lens, The Quint reported. Sadly, the leaked diagram does not have an illustration on how the screen-embedded camera, proximity sensors, 3D sensor and others would look like on the iPhone 8.

"Made in China" - is what it says on the iPhone's back. If Apple can't make the sensor technology play nice with OLED displays, Pacific Crest wrote after talks with suppliers, the company could wind up delaying production or scuttling fingerprint sensing on the iPhone.

'Apple's in-house developed fingerprint ID solution will be fabricated at TSMC's 12-inch line using 65nm process technology, sources told DigitTimes in a March interview.

Many reports have suggested Apple may have found a play to place it within the rumored OLED display.

The iPhone 8 depicted in the photos has a full-face design covering nearly the entire front display. Considering the unit price of about US$5, about 80 million OLED iPhones are expected to be rolled out this year. A dual-lens configuration is all but confirmed for the iPhone 8, considering that its direct predecessor, the iPhone 7 Plus, debuted the feature. The diagram also claims the bezels on all sides of the iPhone 8 would only be 4 mm. Like every other handset, it also has strengths and weaknesses.

A recent report by Nikkei Asian Review also revealed that Foxconn, one of Apple's main manufacturing partners, is making wireless charging modules. In February, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the "iPhone 8" will feature a "revolutionary" front-facing camera system with infrared for fully-featured 3D sensing capabilities.
