iPhone 8 will have an iris scanner, rumor claims
Yesterday a rumor 'confirmed' the fact that the three iPhones launching this year will all have support for wireless charging through their glass backs. Today a new report out of Taiwan reiterates that, along with the fact that one of the three phones will sport an OLED display, which will be provided by Samsung.
This model, tentatively called iPhone 8, will apparently also come with an iris scanner, a feature that debuted in the mobile world on the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note7, but which is expected to make a comeback in the Korean company's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus this spring.
The companies that make up the iPhones' supply chain will allegedly start delivering parts and components for the next-gen devices by the end of the first quarter, earlier than in the past. That said, the new handsets may still be announced in September as usual.
