The giant Cupertino company has decided to ditch some of the key elements in their flagship phone, to break the monotony.


As per the latest tidbit, Apple iPhone 8 in Dubai UAE won't have a physical home button. The circular sized metallic home button had turned out to be a part of the iPhone's identity over the years. To initiate a fresh trend in their handsets, the global tech firm has begun manufacturing the upcoming iPhone 8 without a physical home button. The news was affirmed by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) sources, Apple's prime supplier. The company has apparently begun production of the new A11 chip for Apple.

Earlier this month, a leaked video of the upcoming iPhone 8 had surfaced the internet giving a 360-degree preview of the handset. The video had rendered no home button on the front. Following the news, people started speculating that the fingerprint scanner might be placed on the rear along with the camera setup, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8. But no, Apple has different plans. The global tech firm will be imbibing the concept of optical fingerprint sensor underneath the display. The all glass display of the handset will be embedded with the sensor from within. That would be an all new different concept to look for, isn't it?


Moreover, talking about the other distinct features, Apple iPhone 8 is expected to have infrared image sensors which could boost the camera operations and AR support. Two days back we had informed you that Apple will most likely develop a unique upgrade for its Artificial Intelligence processor, which can enhance the operations of the device even smoother. The AI can be found in all the Apple devices including iPhone 8, iPads and Macs. It is reported that chip will be referred as Apple Neural Engine, which will boost the functioning of the phone's applications. Though the development is at an early stage, once built it will make the operations even faster and swifter besides improving the battery life and other key inbuilt features.
