Apple is taking the Samsung way for new iPhone
At smartphone’s 10th anniversary, Apple is preparing to launch three new iPhones this fall. As per a report by Bloomberg, the company is planning to launch upgraded versions of current two iPhone models and a new flagship phone with an all-screen front, curved glass and a stainless-steel frame and more advanced camera.

Apple is said to feature a Fingerprint scanner integrated into the OLED screen in the new iPhone, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

The new iPhone line-up will be quite crucial for Apple as the company endured a sales slide due to retaining the same shape for the third year in a row. Apple’s new phone might face a tough competition due to the newly launched Samsung S8 line up.

For this new model, Apple is going the Samsung way and is aiming to reduce the overall size of the handset by integrating the home button into the screen itself via software, similar to S8.

As per the report, Apple suppliers have so far struggled to reliably produce heavily curved glass in mass quantities, so the company is more likely to ship the version with more subdued curves. So, the company has tested multiple prototypes with manufacturing partners in Asia.

The new iPhone might come with the dual-camera system positioned vertically, according to people familiar with the matter. For the front-camera, Apple is testing dual-lenses. For this phone, also apple will use components from Sony, as it has done in the past.

Some of the cool features expected in Apple 10th edition iPhone.

Long-distance wireless charging

Apple reportedly struck a deal with Energous, a pioneer in long-distance wireless charging, last December. Since Energous' WattUp charging tech can charge devices from 15 feet away, it was widely believed that the iPhone 8 could be charged without a cable or a wireless charging pad. The Qi wireless charging standard used by Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S8 only charge devices from 1.6 inches away.

However, Copperfield Research recently suggested that Apple didn't plan to add long-distance charging to the iPhone 8. Instead, it suggested that the deal with Energous was instead aimed at keeping the technology out of its rivals' hands.

A curved OLED display

Samsung sparked an aesthetic shift when it launched the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. The display's single curved edge was evolved into two curved edges with the Galaxy S6 Edge and has since become the defining feature of its high-end Edge devices.

Early rumors indicated that Apple would finally add a curved OLED screen to the iPhone 8, but numerous analysts -- including KGI Securities' Ming Chi-Kuo -- claim that Apple scrapped that plan.

Iris scanner

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 will likely always be remembered as the "exploding" phone, but it was also the first Galaxy device to use an iris scanner to unlock the device. Samsung has also added the feature to its S8 and S8+ devices. The iPhone 8, however, isn't expected to add this futuristic feature.
