New fingerprint sensor tech to be used in iPhone 8?


The much-awaited iPhone 8 will arrive after September only, but leaks are arriving every day. The latest report says that the latest iPhone will replace the traditional capacitive Touch ID with new fingerprint sensor tech.

Apple will celebrate its 10th anniversary by introducing an in-house integrated fingerprint ID technology for the next generation iPhones including iPhone 8, according to Digitimes report.

Citing sources, DigiTimes reports that Apple has decided to combine an algorithm from AuthenTec with glass identification technology from Privaris (biometric security firm acquired by Apple in 2015), for the OLED iPhone 8.

This sensor will be placed under iPhone’s OLED display.

In addition, it says that Apple will bring additional authentication mechanisms to further bolster the feature set of the upcoming iPhone.

“Apple’s in-house developed fingerprint ID solution will be fabricated at TSMC’s 12-inch line using 65nm process technology, said the sources, adding that production for the new OLED iPhone is unlikely to start until September due to the redesigned fingerprint ID solution,” said Digitimes.

Collating all rumors, Apple is expected to feature fingerprint sensor, wireless charging, a curved OLED display, no home button, and most likely a facial recognition sensor which would also have Augmented-Reality applications.
