iPhone 8 without home button but with function area

Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 will feature a “ mode" at the bottom of its edge-to-edge OLED display, replacing the current iPhone's home button with Touch ID, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo, who has predicted several features of Apple has previously detailed the “function area” as it refers to the bottom of the phone in a slide. The 5,8-inch iPhone is said to have a 5.15-inch bezel-less OLED display.

The most obvious change to the OLED iPhone will be a full-screen design, along with the removal of the home button that features the current fingerprint recognition technology. We expect the iPhone OLED will come with a 5.8 "physical OLED", but the actual screen size will be around 5.15". The rest will be a space for (e.g. allocation of virtual keys).

The "function area" sounds a lot like the Touch Bar on Apple's new MacBook Pro. The Touch Bar displays your applications and presents various function keys for greater productivity. Kuo also said that this area will be for the distribution of virtual keys, but did not give further details.

Let's say JPMorgan's Rod Hall analyst (who is not as reliable as Kuo) said Apple would remove the Home TouchID button and replace it with a 3D laser scanner to identify the face.

The rumors of course will continue to come until the official launch of the iPhone 8, which is said to be wireless charging, and a body of glass only. Rumors also indicate a dramatic increase in battery capacity.
