Report – The iPhone 8 will feature Touch ID in the front glass

5
Every year there is the usual flow of leaks and rumors in regards to Apple's iPhone. While that seems to be the case this year, we have yet to solidify the placement of the device's Touch ID sensor. That all might change, as it appears that new information has surfaced that states Apple will indeed have its fingerprint sensor under the front display glass of its next device.

According to a report Digitimes by way of Economic Daily News, the next iPhone will incorporate a fingerprint sensor directly under the glass of the front display. If this comes to fruition, it will be one of the most elegant solutions yet. The information was announced at a Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) symposium, along with other features that will arrive on the device. If unfamiliar, TSMC has been tasked over the past several years by Apple to create processors for many of its devices. If Apple is capable of getting this to market, it will succeed where some have previously failed.

Samsung was rumored to be developing something similar but failed to get it to production on its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Instead, the firm had to ship its handsets with a fingerprint reader on the rear, which most have voiced that it is awkwardly placed and not convenient to use. Naturally, we still have quite some time until Apple announces its devices, which have been rumored to be delayed.

The touch ID feature is a cool idea in all but other than that, its similar to the previous iPhones. Still a brilliant feature nonetheless.

Kinda cool, I think the iPhone 8 will be my next phone, always wanted an iPhone but never got one yet.

Not getting the iPhone 8 lol, only just got the 7 plus, I don't think they can really add anything else that would interest me.

Touch ID sounds rather interesting, I need to upgrade soon anyways.

I never use touch ID, literally I'm the only one who goes on my phone so I don't even use a password as it's a waste of time for me.

I'm more of a see it to believe it. Every year the rumors get bigger and better with the next iPhone. Hoping to see something big from them. I wonder will it make screen replacement's harder to do ?
