Overall, the allegedly final design of the iPhone 8 that was revealed in the recently leaked schematics has managed to get many fans of the iconic device extremely excited. The company might also release the successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus later this year.
Apple has a long history of delivering innovative products and especially the company's innovations in smartphone market are exceptional.
Since early this year, rumors about Apple developing a new flagship iPhone with screen-embedded fingerprint sensor have been spreading like wildfire. A bezel free iPhone with new sensors?
Amongst those possible changes could be the removal entirely of the home button, eliminating the bezel that is around the display of the phone and using materials to build the phone that have never been used prior to now on any iPhones preceding this one.

The iPhone 8 has hit rumor mills again, this time in the form of a couple of renders by Weibo leakster KK. Namely, that when they checked with the "fingerprint module provider", the analysts discovered that Apple has not placed a "firm order for production".
In a note to investors, he wrote: "Likely options for Apple include a delay of production or elimination of fingerprint sensing on the OLED iPhone". However, he said Apple's 3D sensing production appears on track, and could be a viable alternative to fingerprints. The Pacific Crest report follows other reports that say Apple is having problems producing its next handset, raising the possibility that it could miss its usual mid-September release window.
It is, however, going with its own technology for a fingerprint recognition solution - Authentec algorithm combined with Privaris glass identification technology.
As a side note, SK hynix is also in the bidding for Toshiba to strengthen their business with Apple.
Samsung's non-memory chip unit System LSI will supply display driver IC, the display chip for the OLED screen, while STEMCO and LG Innotek will provide the chip on films that connect it to the printed circuit board. One 6th-generation substrate can translate into 300 OLED panels for 5.5-inch displays for smartphones.
The iPhone 8 may come housed with a dual-camera setup, but vertically-oriented, unlike the iPhone 7 Plus.
