For weeks, many speculations have surfaced on what the next iPhone would look like. While we know that the iPhone 8 will come with a 5.8-inch OLED display, multiple design renderings that surfaced in the last two weeks have given a clearer picture of the design of the new iPhone.

Mac Rumors reports that several prototypes of the iPhone 8 are being tested by Apple. Two of them revealed a phone with an aluminum frame, vertical dual-lens camera, and a "mystery" hole on the rear below the Apple logo. Another leak showed a similar design but with a full rear casing. The next iPhone is believed to have a silver aluminum shell with a squared design similar to the iPhone 5.

Several leaked pictures of the iPhone 8 shows a vertical dual-lens camera designed for better picture quality and augmented reality functionality. It is also rumored that the aluminum shell is for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The circular cutout revealed on the back is designed for inductive wireless charging module.

Uber Gizmo reveals that the iPhone 8 will feature a glass front and back. In addition, it could have a body that combines the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. The accuracy of these renderings is not yet clear as it has long been rumored that the new iPhone 8 will include a fingerprint sensor located below the display. But while Apple is still trying to make the sensor work, it is likely that they would first put the Touch ID at the rear

There are also rumors that Apple is testing about 10 different prototypes so the final design of the iPhone 8 is still up in the air and that we will know it by September. There are also speculations that the new phone will come with a front-facing camera with a laser. So people will have an idea of the final design as the launch date comes closer.
