Latest iPhone 8 Leaks Revealed; Fall Release Predicted
The latest design leak for the iPhone 8 revealed two distinct designs for Apple's new flagship phone. One design showed a phone made from aluminum and another showed a more drastic look with a curved glass front and back. The latest leaks showed the latter design.
The latest leaks came from a Twitter post by Benjamin Geskin which showed what was supposed to be a dummy model of the iPhone 8 chassis. 9 to 5 Mac reports that most of the photos showed a device with a missing Apple logo on the back. It is not clear at what stage of production that dummies came from. However, most of the photos jive with leaks from other sources. The back of the phone had a vertical rectangle for the new dual camera.
The new leaks also showed the absence of a Touch ID fingerprint sensor which means that the iPhone 8 will come with an integrated fingerprint sensor underneath the display itself. The front, on the other hand, has a black screen with no identifiable bezel. The earpiece is visible at the top middle of the front. The cutout for the cameras, proximity sensors, and others are also not distinguishable.
Gadgets Made reveals that the sides of the upcoming iPhone 8 will have a polished stainless steel finish similar to the iPhone 4. It closely resembles the backplate of the classic iPod. As expected, it will have separate volume buttons and a mute switch. The right side is similar to the current iPhone with the power button and SIM slots. The only difference is that the power switch is longer and more elongated.
Although the design of the iPhone 8 is still not finalized, it seems that the specs and features of the phone are already locked. The upcoming iPhone will reportedly have 3D sensing front camera, wireless charging, and a 5.8-inch OLED 521 PPI display, to name just a few. The new iPhone will be launched in fall along with updates for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
