As we all been coming across multiple leaks and reports about the new design and features of the upcoming iPhone 8. The latest leak or report suggests that the next iPhone that is making-up rounds on the internet, the company may have selected a new glass innovation for fingerprint scanning.
Going through the leak or report, we get to know that Apple Company has decided to use its own AuthenTec Algorithm that will be combined with Privaris glass identification technology for the upcoming fingerprint ID solution. Apple now appears that they have left the Synaptics’ Natural ID touch fingerprint sensor and the Qualcomm’s Sense ID fingerprint tech for their next iPhone.
The Touch ID technique which is used by Apple originated from AuthenTec, which was acquired by Apple Co. in 2012. Following the same, Apple further bought several patents related to touchscreen and fingerprint technology from Privaris.
The report further states that the new technology will be developed at TSMC’s 12-inch line with 65nm process technology. It states that the production will not start until September because of the redesigned fingerprint ID solution. Earlier reports states that Apple might start the production of the upcoming new iPhones in July, but it is claimed that the date applies only to the other two models of iPhones.
The mass production of upcoming iPhone 8 featuring OLED display might come only in September. The leak also mentioned that the iPhone 8 might arrive with biometric authentication systems such as ultrasound besides the already rumored iris scanning and facial recognition technologies. It may also come with an Edge-to-Edge OLED display that is made by Samsung and wireless charging. Notably, Apple had filed patents for fingerprint sensors embedded in the display to make it easier for smartphone makers to come up with thinner phones featuring smaller bezels.
