"The full-screen design doesn't work with existing capacitive fingerprint recognition", KGI reported, noting that a "more complex panel design" would be required in order to get Touch ID to work. "As the new OLED iPhone won't support under-display fingerprint recognition, we now do not expect production ramp-up will be delayed again (we previously projected the ramp-up would be postponed to late October or later)", says Kuo.
With the iPhone 8 expected to feature a design with a dramatically reduced bezel, analysts have made various predictions about where Touch ID will go including within the display (as Qualcomm recently displayed), behind the iPhone, and in the power switch.
Tips and talk of the possibility of removing the Touch ID sensor from iPhone 8 has turned over a new rumor - one about faces. Samsung has reportedly run into the same issue, as it was unable to fit an integrated scanner in time for release, and introduced the Galaxy S8 with the sensor on the back as a result.
Its quite possible that there wont be a fingerprint reader, it certainly wont be under the display. The consensus is that Apple will release a new OLED iPhone with an edge-to-edge screen, known as the iPhone 8, as well as updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The timing of this news also couldn't be worse.
Analysts and customers have been throwing out predictions about the much-hyped device since early 2017.
According to the analyst, Apple's next-generation OLED iPhone will indeed ditch the physical home button beneath the display.
