As we get closer to the announcement of the iPhone 8, we also get an ever better picture of how this new model looks like. The following new runners from the iPhone 8 come in well with the glass housing and the larger screen. The images were created by @OnLeaks based on images that would come from the factory.
The iPhone 8 in these new renders is based on one of the prototypes Apple would test. The model would be about 143.5 by 70.9 by 7.7 millimeters, making it in size between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The pictures show how the front cameras are positioned and how the screen goes through to the edges. The model has no rounded screen edges like the Samsung Galaxy S8, but runs from top to bottom. The screen is recognizable by the slightly lighter shade of black.
At the top you will find the necessary sensors, speaker gates and dual front camera. The iPhone 8 gets a 3D camera, which makes augmented reality possible. Whether Apple actually chose a dual camera in the front is just the question, but in the renders it is always good to see how it can be processed. The sides also contain the same buttons as before, so in that case no surprises. However, the antenna strips are a lot thinner and therefore subtle.
Next to the front, the back is also made of glass, with the top of the well-known Apple logo. The camera lens has been rotated a quarter turn, as is evident in all recent rumors. Even though the device itself is already thicker than the iPhone 7. The way the camera lens protrudes, however, is more like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s than how Apple has solved it on the iPhone 7. What is also noticeable is that the LED flash is between the two camera lenses, instead of next to it.
One aspect to be taken into account is that the Touch ID sensor is clearly not present in the renders. Apple would not be surprised if the fingerprint scanner came under the screen or the back of the iPhone 8. If Apple is required, they may probably count on a lot of criticism from Apple users.
The iPhone 8 is likely to announce in September, along with the less spectacular iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The new iPhones would then be on sale in October, although the supply of iPhone 8 will probably be very limited. The mass production of all new models would in any event be on schedule.
