The fingerprint sensor situation still isn't clear. The video doesn't reveal what will happen with this feature, but it is possible that it is embedded into the power button on the side of the phone. There's also a possibility that the company will ditch the Touch ID and go with just facial recognition.

Apple is expected to announce three new devices this year - iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8. According to sources close to the company, the iPhone 8 might come in two versions, with 128GB and 256GB of storage, and its price should start from $1,100 to $1,200.
