The Face ID feature is one of the most striking and talked about feature nowadays. Apple claims that the facial recognition is more accurate than the Touch ID sensor. And now recently a report has been published by Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most learned analysts from KGI securities.
The knowledgeable analyst even stated that the Cupertino Company is still working on an under-display Touch ID sensor for the upcoming iPhones.
Ming-Chi Kuo shared an exciting information that by the next year 2018 all the iPhones which include the brand new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus also would also get the feature of Face ID with the TrueDepth camera.
A key question on the minds of many investors is whether the new iPhone models to be launched in 2018 will support Touch ID (fingerprint recognition). We believe the key factors are: (1) whether or not Face ID (facial recognition) of the iPhone X provide a positive user experience; and (2) the technical issues that Apple (US) will have to address with an under-display fingerprint solution. We believe Apple will replace the existing Home button-based Touch ID with the under-display solution for higher screen-to-body ratios, if it decides to bring back Touch ID.
At present, Apple is facing issues with it 3D touch ID panel. The 3D touch ID panel makes the screen thick and also minimizes the precision of scanning through an under display fingerprint scanner.
However, the company has not finalized it, because the customer’s reviews also matter as to how much are they liking the feature of Face ID.
