Apple is back with its new iPhone 8 having an amazing look.
According to Sir Jony Ive (Apple’s design chief), now the iPhone will look like one piece of glass, with a screen that covers the front of the iPhone. Clues in the HomePod code suggest the phone will have a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display. The rumors are that Apple could also replace the device’s aluminum back with a glass back and aluminum bumper.
No home button
Apple is in a position to get rid of the home button. So it is said that it will not have a home button as like the successor’s had in the front of them.
Facial recognition software
The smartphone will come with Facial recognition. The security upgrade is super fast, this enables to scan a user’s face and unlock the device in “millionths of a second”.
It will work with a 3D camera, according to leaked images. It could be used to unlock the phone, log in to apps and verify Apple Pay transactions.
Similar facial recognition is currently available on rival phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The “SmartCam” will identify fireworks, foliage, babies, pets, snow or sport.
