A lot has been talked about the specs and design of the iPhone 8. Every other day we come across new leaks suggesting some new features on the smartphone.
According to recent reports, the upcoming iPhone will feature not one but two iris scanners on its top bezel. The sensors are said to work together as a 3D face recognition tool. Rumors have it, this feature will be known as Face ID. Now a report by the publication Korea Herald claims that the Face ID feature will function at the speed at a millionth of a second.
The report further states, "3-D sensors are said to be adopted for the front and rear of the device to realize AR applications, which integrate 3-D virtual images with user's environment in real time."
As for authenticity, the publication claims to have obtained this piece of information from a source familiar with the matter. Well, we would still suggest you take it with a grain of salt.
There is one question bothering us though. What about the fingerprint scanner? We all know that Apple wanted to embed the fingerprint scanner into the display. However, the Cupertino-giant has apparently failed to do so. Hence, it is being speculated that the iPhone 8 would come sans the fingerprint scanner. To make up for that the face recognition feature will be very powerful and accurate.
Coming to another aspect, the report has claimed that iPhone 8 will sport a different design than the flagships from other companies. While the device will come with a bezel-less design, instead of the curved-edged display, it will feature a flat-screen.
