Apple Tests 3-D Face Scanning to Unlock Next iPhone - Bloomberg
Bloomberg: iPhone 8 will replace Touch ID with 3D facial detection, ProMotion possible | 9to 5Mac
According to sources, Apple is testing a new security system that allows users to login, payment authentication, launch secure applications, etc. by 3D scanning of users' faces. This function unlocks within just a few hundred milliseconds after using the new 3D sensor to be installed in the iPhone and scanning the face of the user. Apart from this, Apple seems to be testing the eyes to make the system even stronger. For the face authentication system above, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst of KGI Securities, also agrees, but Apple's public information refuses to comment.

ProMotion technology increases the refresh rate, blurring when scrolling the screen is dramatically improved, making the screen easier to see.
In addition, Bloomberg's perspective is that it will also be equipped with new chips to support ProMotion technology and artificial intelligence tasks. This chip is "Apple Neural Engine"It is the same as what was reported as a news report, improving battery life by playing the role of predicting image recognition and typing. Besides this, it is expected to be equipped with a chip called "M series" that detects motion, etc.
In addition to the above, the LCD display used in the iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus is upgraded to the display gag OLED screen on the new iPhone, and it is expected to realize more vivid colors.
