"Apple's next OLED iPhone 8 will be packed with a 3D-Sensing front camera enabling facial recognition and an infrared module that can sense the space in front of it," says the KGI Securities Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to the Apple Analyst, the new component collects information about 2D images from the front camera and merges them for face recognition, iris recognition, and 3D selfies.

From 9to5Mac report it states that" New innovative games could accurately mimic users head onto the characters and even the 3D selfies could be used in Augmented reality on iPhone.

Latest hardware will use PrimeSense algorithms allowing the sensors to detect the location and depth of objects under visibility. The dual rear camera on iPhone 7 isn't fully capable of identifying depth detection but could determine the distance away using their Optical parallax.

Apple might potentially remove the large dual camera iris systems adding a 3D sensing camera on the rear. KGI says "Apple is years ahead of Android platform in terms of 3D algorithms which will make the advanced 3D camera sensor a unique iPhone feature for a couple of years."

Some of the other popular rumors that are so good to be true include an OLED Screen, Wireless charging, Touch Bar instead of Home button, and finally, it could be a water resistant iPhone with the bezel made of forged steel.
