Is the Note 7 coming back?All the tech headlines that matter today. We delve into new details about the iPhone 8's possible facial scanner, drone delivery tests being conducted by UPS and the Note 7's possible comeback.
This is CNet and here are the stories that matter right now. According to report and mark rumours, Apple's next iPhone might feature a new camera system that's capable of visual scan technology. Sensors and infrared modules loaded in the device could potentially allow the phone to understand the depth and shape of objects placed in front of it. This would make for improved security over the fingerprint scanning method that's currently in place. UPS is currently testing a delivery method where a drone drops off a package at a house while the driver moves to the next address. So why do this? The so-called last-mile packages need to travel to arrive at your doorstep. It's the most cost inefficient portion of the whole trip. If UPS could expedite that process, it could save millions of dollars. Finally, the Note 7 saga might not be over just yet. According to the investor, which cites unnamed Samsung sources Rumors suggest the company might start selling refurbished Note 7 phones with a smaller battery inside to lessen the blow of the $5 billion loss after the recall fiasco. If this checks out, phones could go on sale as early as June. [MUSIC] You can stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNet Tech Today app in the Apple or Google Play Store.
