Apple’s new iPhone 8 is collecting the attention of the world for new touch ID technology.
‘Built-in Touch ID’ is a technology that makes biometric information (fingerprint) recognized by inserting a fingerprint sensor inside the display and putting the hand on the screen.
Unfortunately, Apple is not planning to include “built-in-touch ID” technology in iPhone 8 due to commercial fail. Instead of putting the built-in Touch ID technology to the next model, Apple seems to have built a fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 8 power button.
The iPhone 8 is expected to have significantly enhance camera functions, such as ‘4K video 60P shooting’ and iPhone 8 is to be released by the end of September.
Moreover, due to the supply and demand of OLEDs, initial shipments will be in the range of 200 to 400 million units, and by the end of the year, a total of 45 to 50 million OLED iPhones (probably iPhone 8) will be shipped.
Expected color variations for Apple iPhone 8 are Bronze Gold, Black and Silver.
