Leaked Blueprint Shows 'L' Shape Motherboard for Virtual Fingerprint Recognition

A new report from Business Korea says that Apple is working to produce its own micro-LED tech - as reportedly working on with LuxVue, a firm acquired by Apple in 2014.

Considering that Apple's most notable iPhone upgrades in recent years ranged from superfluous to outright infuriating. That's one of the biggest questions surrounding the iPhone 8, and if a newly leaked schematic is accurate we know one place it won't be - the back of the handset. However the highlight of all this is that it will have a 5.2 inch screen (which will occupy much of the front) in a casing with dimensions similar to those of iPhone 7 with 4.7 inch screen.

The leaked iPhone 8 schematic also shows the camera's dual lenses going vertical, with the flash located between the two sensors.

The iPhone 8 won't be Apple's only new phone this year, with the handset tipped to drop alongside less headline grabbing iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus updates. However, they did not mention a true wireless-charging feature.

After Marleau's goal breathed life into the building, Pavelski's backhand attempt was the closest San Jose came to a second goal. Just 56 seconds later, Slepyshev got into the action when Paul Martin mishandled a pass from Chris Tierney at the point.

Several schematics of the alleged iPhone 8 have leaked online, some showed off the Touch ID at the back of the upcoming smartphone, some pointed to the sensor being located in the front (underneath the display), whereas some schematics did not reveal the Touch ID's placement at all.

However, one of the key things for the possible and significant increase in the autonomy of iPhone 8 lies in the choice of an OLED screen. The Apple Watch charger uses a variant of Qi technology. According to some reports, the iPhone-maker is indeed now experimenting with a rear Touch ID button.

In November 2016, the CEO of Sharp Corporation, a Japanese company involved in the manufacturing and sales of telecommunications equipment, confirmed that the iPhone 8 will feature an OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) screen. That's long-range wireless charging support that would allow an iPhone owner to keep using a device while the battery would recharge wirelessly.

Apple further notes that device 10B may include one or more antennas such as antennas 40B that exchange wireless power signals and/or wireless communications signals with antenna (s) 40A via wireless path 106. "With only 10 percent of 7 and 7 Plus buyers switching from an Android phone, now 3-6 months after the launch of those models in September 2016, we see how the premiere iPhone models sell mostly to the installed base of iPhone owners".
