I think it will be similar to TouchBar on new macbook pro. Not just 3 dumb keys like every android fan suggests.
Function Area is AKA as this
like decade ago bwahahaha...
Remember similar rumors about iphone 6?
We always hear about amazing concepts , but in the and fruit company gives us a casual smartphone.
That's Apple, no innovation,just copy and sue.
Isn't this similar to how Sammy are going about it with the S8? Like a combination of this and force touch? Let the leapfrogging begin!
They better allow us to put our finger anywhere in that function area to unlock.
Although I use an iphone, I am a big time Apple hater, I despise its policies. However I must admit this time apple really seems to come up with something much better. A Mouse pad area like that will be very useful.
Its not possible for iPhone to make that kind of looking phone although people believe in Apple more than they do in God unfortunately .
Lots of talk and no workshop, it's just coming out slightly better than last with 100 mAh bigger battery and same 750p screen, costing $1100.
That render is more realistic than the full border to border renders that came before.
Also for whole 5.8 inch screen expand help, can be 3D slide from corner to summon app and function panel on bottom. Because 5 inch screen area is very small screen area for phablet. Especially compare with this year Samsung phablet's screen 5.8 inch and 6.2inch. And even downgrade for Apple today 5.5inch screen Plus phablets.
Well, good to hear that apple expands mutitasking accessibility in easier way. Its very good for increasing poductivity and multitasking. It will like for Desktop power user, whats is for big sreens like and competition for Note users. Good to hear that apple doing steps for this way. Maybe apple will also introduce mini apple pencil for iphone 8 plus/pro? . Well when you are Desktop productivity power user you also like big screen. And when you have 5.8 inch screen and when browsing Desktop version view pages, because it's more productive and functional, view Desktop format documents, or watch video and when can't have full 5.8 screen i'ts
disappointing. Sure need also need harmonize productivity with it. Maybe try make two sage navigation bar, one stage for apps and functions, and two stage for toggles like now. And all stages youcan pull down to expand whole 5.8 inch screen.
Also can two stage function bar make 3D touch, hard pull upp to pull up two stage. And hen everything is pull down is just virtual home buton. Sure its bothers productivity and accessibility lit a bit more. Then can Make 3D home button to press hard or harder to summon one stage multitasking apps and functions. Sure if you tap low it go home. Also can different 3D home button be like 3D two stage right or left corner slide, to go home, or multitasking. Like without button sailfish, just less slide, thanks to 3D touch. But function bar is good. But appe need solve somehow expand screen to whole 5.8 inch when need, for Desktop productivity power users, without losing function accessibility and multitasking bar. Good to hear that they intease productivity in light way and make competition and pushing for Note's series. Because they Note also have mess and its cost to productivity. They have productivity but its not much everything stick and intuitive usage like apple product iOS. But i like samsung because it gives more productivity accessibility and functions, even it have mess.
