Apple ‘leak’ suggests in-glass progress
13 June 2017 16:49 GMT

A purported leak of images showing the case of the new iPhone 8 suggest it has solved issues related to integrating a fingerprint sensor in the touchscreen.

Leaked on Reddit, There is hardly any bezel visible at all on the sides, bottom, and top of the handset. 
Crucially there is no space for a Touch ID sensor. 
If this image really does represent a finalized design, then it would seem that Apple has figured out a way to integrate (or replace) its Touch ID sensor into the display of the device. That would be a bragging point over Samsung, which has struggled to do the same.
The images are said to come from a case manufacturer who received them from a glass supplier in China.
