Apple Exploring Facial Recognition System for iPhone 8

Apple is going to have to come up with something pretty impressive if they want to implement facial recognition in the iPhone 8. We've already seem facial recognition beat by photographs, animated GIFs and video, so it will be interesting to see what the crew from Cupertino comes up with.

Apple may switch to a film sensor from the current FPCB sensor in order to provide better 3D Touch user experience, as a film sensor offers higher sensitivity. Also, we expect the new OLED iPhone will come with a flexible OLED panel. To avoid deforming the form factor of the flexible OLED panel from touch operation pressure, a metal structural part will be placed under the film sensor to provide more robust structural support.
