Apple has already been hinted to equip some superlative technology in its next iPhone flagship. However, some latest reports are suggesting that Apple tunes up some new innovation with its Touch ID sensor. As per the recent insights, to have a tough competition with its major rivals, Apple has now planned to move up its physical sensor in the backend for iPhone 8.

According to Apple Insider, most of the original equipment manufacturers have evolved a knack of creating their devices with bezel-less display in front. Apple is now said to move to the same path for crunching its other rivals in the competition. To raise its position higher, the Cupertino-based tech giant has reportedly planned to place its physical fingerprint sensor on the back of its iPhone 8 model. However, this hasn't been confirmed yet, but KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also indicated for the similar development.

As per another report by Deccan Chronicle, Kuo stated that Apple is going to replace its physical Touch ID sensor to the back of iPhone 8 for securing a bezel-free display of the smartphone, with more improved resolution context. Kuo further stated that Apple may also turn down its plan to initiate a virtual Touch ID built into the display panel into iPhone 8. In spite of that, the company may implement an innovative type of biometric technology led facial recognition and iris scanning technique in its upcoming smartphone.

Some potential sources have even claimed that Apple may also instigate a newly evolved 3D sensing technology with its iPhone 8. It is also heard in this context that Samsung also tried to position a fingerprint scanner to its Galaxy S8. However, the initiative was not completed. This might be a reason why Apple is looking forward to implementing this on its next flagship smartphone to beat the South Korean tech giant in this race.
