According to Forbes, the news on the cancellation of the central upgrade of iPhone 8 came from the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to the acclaimed analysts, the integration of a fingerprint scanner in the display of the upcoming iPhone 8 was canceled.

Inquisitr reports that Apple is not the pioneer company who thought about integrating a fingerprint sensor into a phone’s screen. According to sources, Samsung initially attempted to incorporate the feature into its Galaxy S8. Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented Samsung from launching the feature this year.

Apple will make huge gamble in iPhone 8 feature

Many reports claimed that the tech giant was considering the integration of its #Touch Id technology into an enlarged power button. But recent accounts hint that the tech giant is going for a greater gamble.

Forbes reports that leaks from the company’s software indicated that the tech giant is replacing its Touch ID security with “#Face ID.” The technology which is capable of facial recognition is similar to the security feature introduced in Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Apple’s version of the “Face ID” is expected to perform better compared to Samsung’s who received complaints about the feature’s erratic performance. According to users, the facial recognition feature of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus is difficult to use in low light and bright sunlight and fails to recognize users while wearing eye wears such as sunglasses and eyeglasses.

Apple’s move is quite brave considering that Samsung decided to retain the fingerprint sensors on their phones. Many optimists believe that Apple’s bold move indicates that the developer is pretty much confident that its latest technology will perform well. After all, the tech giant has a famous history of cutting the most mainstream features and technology including floppy disks, USB Type-A, and the headphone jack. The tech giant is also quick in offering better alternatives and solutions for such feature cuts.
