Apple iPhone 8 White Variant surfaces; KGI Analyst claims No In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor

Apple iPhone 8 rumors are all over the internet and new ones keep coming every day. We are a few months away from the official launch, and a rumor about the design and the color of iPhone 8 has surfaced the Internet. Recently we got the rumor from KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo, reported that Apple took OLED supply measures to secure next year demand as well.

This time, KGI Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back talking about the iPhone 8. He claims that Apple won’t be adding the on-screen fingerprint sensor that was most rumored about in the past, he didn’t explain the specific reasons. Also, the analyst has failed to clarify the alternate placement of the Touch ID sensor or if there will be no Touch ID altogether. This rumor seems to be broken because Apple might not skip the infamous TouchID from an iPhone without having a superior tech in hand.

Ming-Chi Kuo also predicts that Apple will release the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 in 64 GB and 256 GB storage variants only. The Lightning port will be on board, but Apple will also embed a USB Type-C power delivery circuit for better-charging speeds. The iPhone 7S will feature a 4.7 inches display with 2 GB RAM whereas, the iPhone 7S Plus will feature a 5.5 inches display with 3GB RAM. He also predicts a glass panel back for all three variants for wireless charging and an aluminum chassis.

Taking the rumor to a new level, Designer Martin Hajek has released iPhone 8 renders inspired from iPhone 8 dummies. The image shows a white color iPhone 8 with the same rumored design; almost bezel-less display, vertical dual camera setup, an upper-lip on the display with camera/sensors and a glass back panel.

Another report from Korea Herald claims that Apple is going to strike a deal with LG for making OLED displays for future iPhones. The report also says that Apple is looking forward to investing in LG in exchange of the OLED display production. This report mostly clarifies that iPhone 8 might be coming with an OLED display, waterproof support, a faster A11 chip and wireless charging.
