The buzz has been going on for some time that Apple’s new iPhone 8 is likely to have a brand-new design. A new patent filed by Apple is a proof that the tech giant is seriously roping in new technology for a cutting-edge new look for its upcoming new model.
Apple is reportedly working on a mesmerizing new design for its iPhone 8. It will have a display that may cover the complete face of the gadget, says an expert.
Apple has reportedly filed patents, for devising a unique technology for its gadget to help bury its Touch ID fingerprint sensor under the glass display.
It plans to accomplish the task by avoiding the physical switch which is being used in the Home Button.
Incidentally, the company has come up with these features for its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launched last month. New iPhone 8 will probably try to skip the the space previously given for Home Button by having an edge-to-edge display.
But, major issue is the bezel located at top of the gadget. But, now Apple plans to relocate a few components.
Under the new US patent, it will bring a new technology to accommodate a light sensor into the screen. It will affect neither the functionality of the touchscreen display nor the sensor.
“In a typical device, a light sensor is laterally displaced from an active display region of the display along a front face of the device,” says Apple about its new patent.
“Additional space is therefore provided in common devices at the top, bottom, or side of the active display area to accommodate the light sensor,” added Apple.
“This can result in an undesirable increase in the size and weight of the device, if care is not taken, displays may be bulky or may be surrounded by overly large borders”, says company, adding “it would therefore be desirable to be able to provide improved electronic devices with light sensors and displays.”
