Cupertino giant Apple will release the next generation Apple iPhone 8 in September this year, and every Apple fanboy is expecting it to feature radical changes when compared to its predecessor. All the rumours surfaced till date have just said what does the device feature internally, but that’s going to change today.
Reliable leaker Onleaks along with GearIndia have posted a rendered video of the Apple iPhone 8, which allegedly showed how the device looks. According to the video, the iPhone 8 will feature an AMOLED screen with thin side bezels all around. However, at first glance, the device look extremely thicker, and it measures 143.5 x 70.9 x 7.7mm, minus the protruding camera bump at the back. Including the camera bump, the device measures 8.9mm.
As speculated in various leaks, all the iPhone 8 models will feature dual camera setup at the back, same as the iPhone 7 Plus, but this time around, Apple may place them vertically with a flash module separating the two sensors. The volume rockers and alert slider are present on the left side, as seen on previous iPhones and the power button, SIM card tray can be seen on right side. At the bottom of the phone, there’s a lighting port and no room for 3.5mm headphone jack this time as well.
The major absence in this leak is the Touch ID. As you can see in the images, there’s Touch ID on the physical portion of the device, which makes us believe that it will be either integrated into the display or may be embedded into the Apple logo on the back.
Apple may release three models of the iPhone 8- the regular iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and a premium iPhone 8 Pro. Apple may also bundle the AirPods with iPhone 8 as the company is ultimately looking to go wireless with the upcoming phone.
That said, the report also says that the design might be changed in the final version of iPhone 8 because Apple is currently testing various prototypes of the device. And this design may not be the final one, after all.
