This could be the next iPhone’s design if Apple can’t get the fingerprint sensor embedded into the display panel. Plus, Starcraft on the Mac for free!

    it would be great if they embedded the fingerprint sensor in to the apple logo on the back.

    lol.. it'll probably end up being very similar to the 7.. we still have months before we find out any semi-solid information.

    If they are going to place the print reader on the back of the phone. They need to place the id touch in the apple that is on the back. That would be awesome!

    So I guess we're gonna have iPhone cases with an extra hole in the back?

    If it has to be on the back, why not imbed it into the apple logo?

    I just want to say, that if Apple cannot implement the fingerprint sensor on the screen, I hope they place the fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone instead, probably where the power button is. This will solve issues of each type of placement:

    * Front – takes up valuable real estate on the screen, which obliges the phone to have a chin to accommodate the sensor/home button
    * Back – Although if feels more intuitive, you would need to lift up the phone to access the the fingerprint sensor, quite cumbersome if you want to use your phone whilst laying on a surface.

    Side fingerprint sensor where the power button currently is I believe will provide more convenience and better user experience. This is something that the Essential Phone should have done.

    Use case 1:
    * Unlock phone while holding it by hand:
    – Place thumb on sleep/wake/power button with fingerprint sensor and press to unlock phone

    Use case 2:
    * Unlock phone while it on a flat surface such as a table:
    – Place index finger sleep/wake/power button with fingerprint sensor and press to unlock phone while keeping the phone laid on the the table.

    Sony Xperia X5 have this implemented and I think is an elegant solution to this problem.
