Leaked schematics show Apple's new handset

Design documents that are allegedly of the final design for the iPhone 8 have leaked, reports BGR.

It has also been discussed that it's home button will sit underneath glass, and that it will have to be tapped and not pressed to open up the phone. The company might also release the successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus later this year.

Although the technology is not always used to achieve curves on screens as sometimes they just allow manufacturers to add curved finishes on flat panels, as per Forbes, Google making use of them suggest that the Google Pixel 2 might actually come with a curved display. Therefore, Apple may resort to embedding the sensor on the back of the device. "Additionally, we believe Apple has evaluated Synaptic's (SYNA) optical fingerprint solution, but that it has not been qualified".

Apple wants to place the fingerprint sensor under the display, but that technology doesn't appear to be ready yet. But the display, a key and defining part of the upcoming OLED iPhone's design and functionality, is going to be all Korean.

The latest leaked schematics of the iPhone 8 features some interesting design changes from the now-ubiquitous iPhone 6 template that Apple has been utilizing for the past three smartphone generations.

However, it was revealed last week that iOS users should expect to pay a hefty price tag for their next iPhone.

The high-end iPhone 8 with an OLED display is expected to cost over $1,000, but a base 64GB model could start at $850 to $900 in the US.

As a side note, SK hynix is also in the bidding for Toshiba to strengthen their business with Apple.

According to a new report by market intelligence firm TrendForce, Samsung holds 26.1 percent of the global smartphone while Apple holds 16.9 percent. However, the thickness of the impending iPhone 8 was not shared by the leaked images. Further, as per Brian White (analyst), the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be available for pre-orders along with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone devices, however, the availability of the 5.8-inch variant is likely to happen sometime in October-November.
