IPhone 8am each day is closer to our hands, and while we await his arrival, rumors have not stopped. Now, according to a new patent, the iPhone 8 Apple would have a completely different design from what we've seen so far on a smartphone.
If you want to know more about it, here we leave all the details.
A very interesting patent
Apple has patented a method of Tuesday include light sensors directly on the screen of the device. All this information is based on that seen in the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
This patent, which is registered under No. 9,466,653, could be an important step by the Cupertino to create the first iPhone without bezels . According to a note in the patent systems ambient light sensors are always separated from the device screen, and although this helps to produce phones more easily, remove useful space.
In fact, reports suggest that Apple would be looking for a way to implement this design, as proposed installing light sensors directly on the screen layer. This layer would already have the necessary components to power these sensors, as reported by AppleInsider .
IPhone 8 without bezels
Eventually all this results in a new way of coupling these light sensors to the terminal, which help the iPhone to detect ambient light levels around them. Apple describes that this technology could also be used for proximity sensors and any other sensors.
This is not the first patent that makes us think that Apple is planning to release an iPhone without borders on your screen. Last week the company patented a method to integrate the fingerprint sensor directly on this device.
These patents may not say so explicitly, but everything seems to point to a next iPhone 8 without bezels. Currently the iPhone have in their upper and lower edges of the Home button, Touch ID, speakerphone, camera and light sensors.
However, to reach this point, the company still need to find a way to include the front camera and speaker on an iPhone that does not bezels. If the rumors are true and the iPhone 8 is intended to be launched in 2017, we are confident that Apple will find a way to include them sooner rather than later.
