Apple is prepping to release its tenth anniversary iPhone later this year. Of late, we’ve been witnessing various leaks about the iPhone 8 revealing the design of the smartphone. Further, Apple has also sent out the dummy iPhone 8 units for the case makers to manufacture the cases for the upcoming smartphone.
Today, folks at Forbes obtained the CAD files of Apple iPhone 8 from a case designer Nodus. And the design of the iPhone 8 is in-line with earlier leaked design renders. The report says that Apple has gone with the same design, even though the Cupertino giant is scared of the Touch ID placement.
Having said that, Apple is looking to eradicate the bezels in the iPhone 8, and they’re going to the glass body, which they left with the iPhone 4s. The iPhone 8 will feature a 5.8-inch display, featuring a cutout at the top of the phone for front-facing camera and sensors. That said, Apple might implement a whole new ‘Function Area’ in iOS 11.
Coming to the rear side of the phone, the iPhone 8 will feature a horizontal dual camera setup, as opposed to the vertically positioned setup seen on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The rear camera could also feature augmented reality functions.
Moreover, the report claims that Apple will stick with the Lightning port with the iPhone 8. Rumours say that the Cupertino giant is looking to replace Lightning port with the USB Type-C port, but that’s not going to happen. The 3.5mm headphone jack won’t be coming to iPhone 8 either, which the company killed with the iPhone 7 series.
Lastly, coming to the major talking point of the iPhone 8- the Touch ID placement. The new renders highlight a larger power button, but the reason for the awkward increase in size is still a mystery. Is Apple looking to follow the footsteps of Sony and integrate the Touch ID onto the power button? Time will tell. The tenth anniversary iPhone is also said to be the costliest iPhone ever.
