iPhone 8 schematics leak, hint towards a rear mounted touch ID

The rumors surrounding the new iPhone 8 are coming in hot since a couple of weeks. With rumors hinting that Apple might go with a bezel less display for its next flagship, a new piece of information has leaked, and it might support the earlier rumor that the iPhone might be going bezel-less.

Mobile information leaker, Sonny Dickson, posted an image on twitter which showed the schematics for, what appears to be, the back of the iPhone 8. And judging from the visuals, it does indeed seems that apple has opted to go for a rear Touch ID. Not only this, but the schematics show a vertical slot for the rear camera, which is fairly big for a single lens setup, which means that we might just see a dual camera setup in the upcoming iPhone.
After rumors have surfaced that hint towards Appleā€™s inability to implement a finger-print sensor under its glass front, the idea of a rear fingerprint sensor is very much feasible. Earlier, Samsung tried to implement the fingerprint sensor on the display in its latest flagship, the Galaxy S8. But it didnā€™t not work out for them and the fingerprint sensor ended up on the rear, beside the camera, not the best placement. Apple dabbled with dual camera setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, and boy, did they succeed. The iPhone 7 Plus churns out beautiful pictures and videos, and Apple might implement the same in its next iteration of the iPhone.

But this schematic is not the confirmation as to how the device will actually be like. What do you want from in the new iPhone? Tell us in the comments below.
