Apple will soon launch the new iPhone 8, previous rumours have suggested that the device will come with a true tone display, will support wireless charging, and will still not include the 3.5mm audio jack. The new Apple iPhone 8 has also been reported to sport a 3D sensor to unlock the device via facial recognition.

An Apple iOS developer, Guilherme Rambo claims that he has unlocked the HomePod firmware code which suggests that the 3D sensor on the iPhone 8 might be also used to mute the notifications when the user looks at the display. This also leads us to believe that the 3D sensor will be placed at the front of the device.

Previously a YouTuber had also posted a video which showed us both the alleged Apple iPhone 7S Plus and the Apple iPhone 8. In the video, it can be noticed that the latter is smaller in size. Both the devices are shown to have a horizontal camera setup. The alleged iPhone 7S Plus comes with a glass back and a home button, but the iPhone 8 seems to lose the home button in favour of a bezel-less display, However, it has a lot of sensors up front.

We do recommend that you take this news with a pinch of salt as the device has not yet been released and the company can decide to change anything at any moment.
