This is the iPhone 8, apparently

Posted May 22, 2017

While previous reports claimed that the iPhone 8 will pack a display the size of an iPhone 7 Plus into the form factor of an iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 may actually be slightly larger if we assume that the molds above were all aligned uniformly. Yet case leaks have had a pretty stellar track record for confirming metrics in the past, so these leaks might be worth looking at.

The iPhone 8 - pictured in the middle is much closer to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 chassis size than the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 8 shows a vertical camera module. Once again, we see that dual-camera setup is placed vertically. In addition, only 5.15-inches of the iPhone 8 display is believed to be active; the rest is supposed to be used for a virtual Touch ID button that will be embedded in the display.

In a design vaguely reminiscent of the original iPhone, the iPhone 8 is set to come with 2.5D curved glass panels on the front and back sandwiched between a polished stainless steel midframe. The resulting design will be like a phone that's akin to a continuous sheet of glass, according to rumors. Meanwhile, a more premium iPhone 8 model with 256GB of storage will likely retail for $1,099. Apple too would follow the likes if the leaks stay true.

No one can ever accuse Apple of selling cheap phones, but as expensive as its iPhones have been in the past, it seems the gadget's newest incarnation will be the priciest yet.

With the home button gone, Apple is widely expected to embed the fingerprint sensor underneath the display of the iPhone 8.

The first images of the real world images iPhone 8 have apparently been leaked online.

Since the iPhone 8 might be Apple's most expensive smartphone yet, the tech giant will still be offering more affordable options. It's unclear if the other two will also sport the same display technology. Tim Cook must either pay more for the components of the iPhone or risk a delayed launch of the iPhone 8 by waiting for a longer time for the components.

Mould images are usually even made for dummy iPhone units or concepts, and we recommend you don't take this as the final word. Feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
