An employee of Foxconn posted a schematic image of the iPhone 8, which will be released in September of this year. Judging by the illustration, Apple decided to move the scanner of fingerprints of Touch ID on the rear panel of the smartphone.
The drawing is intended for internal use, were posted on the Internet, an anonymous employee at the factory where collect the new phone from Apple. Now prototypes of the iPhone 8 has already passed the tests necessary for obtaining certificates. The diagram shows the cover of the upcoming device with dimensions.
Judging by the drawing, the iPhone 8 will be clad in a metal housing and the main camera vertically. The biometric module is moved from the front panel of the iPhone on the back — just below the Apple logo. Such a trend long observed in the market of mobile devices, but this is contrary to previous rumors about Touch ID built into the screen of the smartphone.
Perhaps the experiments have shown that the technology is not yet ready for use or not safe enough. However, this solution obviously will not cause the approval of users and Apple, which has always been committed to innovation will lose ground in the eyes of fans of the company and experts in the industry.
New iPhone 8 may be a bit more than we expected. Renders the device indicate that it will get dimensions 149,5 x 72,5 mm. And it makes a novelty only a few bigger iPhone 7 with its size 138,3 x 67,1 mm.
