If Samsung the company that make components couldn't do it I wonder how the iPhone will turn out, since Samsung make the screens you can only think if its not perfect on the iPhone then online blogs will rip Apple up. I heard security was an issue as well, wonder how easy it is to hack?

You must really underestimate apple and you'll be doing so at your own peril. The in display fps, 3d sensing and AR on the iphone 8 will revolutionalize the smartphone industry. If anybody can push technology, trend, and possibility then its certainly apple and if not apple, then its certainly microsoft closely followed by google and amazon.

Apple doesn't make sh*t. The company they bought makes the sensor.

Apple had aimilar issues too. But since iOS works at the hardware level and not through a VM, maybe they figured it out.

Who cares. The FPS Damsung vets from Synaptics works fast and its tried and true.

No matter where it is, its gonna do the same thing.

Also you dont know if the new iPhone will have AR capabilities.

All you heard was rumors and you believe them like its written in stone.

I would prefer they dont have a sensor at all. Phones worked just fine before we had them.

"also you dont know if the the new iphones will have AR capabilities". Lol, u live under a rock or something? Go look up "ARkit", cause i want to believe you've heard of this thing called google, right? Btw, we saw how buying companies (viv) worked out for samsung with bixby right? I would love to see your reaction when samsung finally learns a thing or two on how to nail it from Apple with the iphone 8.

Well they technically do....
The company they brought is now a part of Apple as is all their current and previous intellectual property.

You clearly need an iOS device to help improve your typing.

Bankz, did you type this comment on your Iphone Pro with keyboard connector while checking the time on your Iwatch with its thousands of health sensors?

Well, at least it appears the talk of Apple "showing everyone how to do TRUE wireless charging from a distance" has died. I'm sure at some point that was also on your list of "locks" for the iphone 7s.

I never said apple will do it with the iphone 8, but i assure you that if true wireless charging ever becomes a thing, Apple will be the company that nails it. You can quote me on this. Of course this excludes those barely existent chinese oems that hears what apple are about to do and rush to release a hardly functioning experimental in-house solution that doesn't even make it to market all so they can gather some media time and say they did it before apple.

Thanks for letting me quote you. Unless you work for Apple then you are only guessing. A quick PA search for "iphone pro" shows the value of guess work and how even paid authors put out completely false information.
If you do work for Apple and you are on PA, then that would make you a paid commentor or disgruntled employee giving up trade secrets. It's really a lose-lose. So, quoting you may be pointless. If you have information, I recommend you be the first to leak the prototype iphone 7s to PA.....or are you making statements of fact without so much as a render?

Theres something i can tell you now bout the iphone 8 but i'll leave it for you to see in january (it will come in an update but at thesame time plans may change). Btw, apple won't release 3 phones this year and on the contrary, i don't work for apple neither am i planning to.

Of course they won't release 3 phones. It's going to be an iPhone 7s and 7s plus like what Apple usually does on the S years.

thats what ifans always say "when apple does X thing, it will sure nail" or "it will do it right" thats always you excuse when apple doesn't make something until every other manufacturer does it, did you forget apple maps?! and the "new" file manager ? is that how it is supposed to be done ? what about the notification shade? is that how it is done ??! it is the most inconvenient thing i have ever used, not to mention that there is a separate shade for toggles (which didnt even have a cellular data toggle till mid 2017)

yes apple knows how things should be done and others should follow :/

If anyone is pushing technology then you shouldn't exclude Samsung man. It's just a hellova company for pushing the boundaries of technology.

Ya ya... Apple always makes revolution. They are ones that created this world and we exist becoz of them.

I agree they created iPhone and Mac Book. Then what, next what?

Google and Amazon are the 2 companies who think out of the box. Agreed they have failed but they keep trying something new. Like I said, Apple fans think, Apple created this world

Dude, vishal, you just joined 43 min ago, as of now. And you don't seem to have much knowledge about iFans' psychology, or the innovations/revolutions from Apple. So please start doing some research before you write anything.

There are only a few, unknowledgeable iFans who think Apple is everything and all others are trash. They are stupid. Rest aren't the same. They know that Apple might be at the top of it's game right now, but everyone doesn't think that its products are best for them. And it's ri
okay for them to think so. They can have their own opinions on Apple.

Neither is Apple not thinking out of the box. Everybody is, but everybody doesn't convert the ideas to products for whatever reason. And many of them copy too. Incl. Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, etc. In regards to thinking out-of-the-box, Apple brought 3D touch and implemented it in a useful way in the iPhone 6S. Apple also brought the first, modern fingerprint scanner in the 5S, and the motion co-processor too! Wasn't that all out-of-the-box thinking? Some of them may have been implemented in the same way by another brand, possibly. Correct me on that. But hope you get my point.

So you need to understand the smartphone industry before making a comment that makes you seem like an 8th grader. Study how this Industry works. Then come, and argue. Respectfully. Hope you comprehend it.

Apple were not first to bring 3D touch and it is not anything new, Android apps have had the capability to do all 3d touch does without the extra weight and cost the hardware brings. It is just a marketing gimmick to make up for Apples lack if innovation. That is why 3D touch has not been implemented to date by anyone else of significance. Apple has been well behind since the 5 series and is living on past glories and people tied to its ecosystem.

ColinW, please don't be that guy. Your post no.74 screams stupidity. Neither did you tell which smartphone was the first to bring 3D touch, or implement it in the same way as Apple in the 6S. What I know, Apple was first with this implementation. So please, don't stay stuff you can't give evidence of....

And we aren't talking what Android can do and what it can't. Stop with the 'Android is best no matter what' trash; there are already many idiots to say that out there. And 3D touch is to make doing things easier and shorter. Such as moving the cursor while typing. It's much easier on iOS with 3D touch, no android phone provides the same level of convenience without it. So 3D touch is an innovation from Apple if it was the first to implement it. And it's not a gimmick for everyone. Plus it has been used in devices such as the Huawei Mate S, so there's that.

So please......stop being an idiot. I'm tired of impersonating techie.

You got 10 up votes for that?! Lol Apple can't push technology worth crap. They don't push anything until somebody else has tried it a few times. They are good at getting credit for others companies trial and errors though.

The issue here is nobody has tried these things the iPhone 8 supposedly has so except some quarter baked crap like Apple maps and Siri. Lol

funny how you are talking about pushing trends and tech for companies which are buying technology made by others, sony, sharp, samsung, lg, panasonic, nokia. To me this are the pioneers, this are the masterminds behind trends. The companies with money and marketing which you mentioned are just speculating.

AR on the iPhone 8 will revolutionize the smartphone industry lol..... Google introduced the technology a year ago... Apple is catching up... I see the next thing you will say is Apple will revolutionize the industry by making a bezel-less phone.

Apples track record in recent years indicates the opposite of what you claim. They have become a follower not a leader at best, blatant copier might be nearer the mark.

apple has never been revolutionary ever since steve jobs died. Well I guess the rainbow colors by tim cook was it. Other than that apple has been copy and pasting features like waterproof, dual windows, smart watch, nfc(google wallet/pay) and file manager. they still dont have wireless charge or fast charge, do they even have an SD card option? total joke of a company which I will enjoy shorting

Microsoft and Google? Maybe. But putting Apple and Amazon before Samsung in terms of innovation is really pushing it.
