Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) [Trend Analysis] moved down reacts as active mover, shares a loss -0.07% to traded at $119.99 and the percentage gap between open changing to regular change was -0.44%. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with his predictions for the iPhone 8, and his latest report focuses on the 3D Touch and Touch ID functionalities. The report claims that Apple will look to improve on both these features in its upcoming flagship device. Kuo notes that because the iPhone 8 will have a ‘wraparound’ OLED display, it will render the current 3D Touch tech incompatible. Because of this, Apple will move to a ‘film sensor’ which will offer ‘higher sensitivity and a wider range of 3D Touch pressure levels’. 9to5Mac got hold of the KGI report that also claims that the new 3D Touch sensor will have a metal structure for support, as OLED displays are more fragile than LCD displays. How this is going to be embedded inside the phone, and how it will elevate the experience, remains to be seen.
Furthermore, Kuo also reveals that there will be major reforms with the Touch ID sensor, most likely it will be embedded underneath the display. The KGI report claims that Apple is developing an optical fingerprint sensor and facial recognition sensor, that will look to redefine security in future iPhone models.
