Purported final design of iPhone 8 suggests Touch ID integration in power button

The most debated aspect of the iPhone 8 is the new location of the Touch ID. Would Apple integrate the Touch ID in the display or put it at the back? Well, here’s another take on the debate – Apple could integrate the Touch ID in the power button of the iPhone 8. 

In collaboration with case designer Nodus, Forbes claims to have a “confirmed” design of the iPhone 8 through CAD files from the supply chain. The renders reveal a larger power button on the iPhone 8 which is “almost double” the size of the one on current iPhone models. Forbes believes that the extra large power button could be used to house the Touch ID similar to how Sony does it with its Xperia flagship smartphones. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve read reports of a larger power button. Earlier in April, iDROPNEWS said that there is a “large power button featuring two points of contact” on the iPhone 8. The information apparently came from Foxconn sources. A recent patent granted to Apple appears to support Forbes’ report.

The renders also corroborated with what we’ve have reported so far; there would be an elongated, bigger display of 5.8-inches, a cutout at the top of the display for the front-facing camera and sensors, and a vertically aligned rear camera for augmented reality.
