iPhone is yet to release date of 2017 iPhone, the new iPhone 8 but Apple customers are already wanting to know what the phone will look like and what type of features it will have. Although Apple hasn’t released any official information yet, quite a few rumors involving potentially leaked photos have been circulating.
Here are some of the best potential leaks of the iPhone 8, along with some speculative comp photos from people who have been following the rumors and putting together illustrations of what the new iPhone might look like.
KK, a frequent Weibo leaker whose leaks about previous devices have sometimes proven accurate, shared the following photos in April showing possible designs for the new iPhone 8:
KK wrote that his confidence level for these leaks was 99 percent. He often shows other leaks as examples of leaks that he finds grossly inaccurate, but the above one got his seal of approval. This shows a display of 5.768 inches diagonally, which covers the entire device, along with curved glass on the edges. It shows components on either side of the earpiece on top, embedded in the display. This also shows the disappearance of a dedicated Home button and no TouchID sensor.MacRumors reported that Apple has possibly been having problems getting TouchID to work with the new display.
In November, MacRumors reportedthat Apple might be testing up to 10 prototypes for the new iPhone, so renderings and leaks could be from any of those prototypes.
It’s important to note that “dummy models” like the one above are often created by case makers, based on leaks and rumors about iPhone specs, to help them in the production process. MacRumors says that these are often accurate, but you never know from one dummy model to the next. Many current rumors indicate there may be no TouchID at all on the iPhone 8, which would make a dummy model like this one more accurate:One leak, released by /Leaks in mid April (with home button from the back), might be from one of Apple’s manufacturing partner’s computers, showing an iPhone in the Engineering Verification Testing stage. It also shows a large display, taking up most of the front of the phone, and a dual camera in the rear, with TouchID also being in the rear. It’s not known if this is authentic or not. If iPhone did have a rear-mounted TouchID, it might look something like this:
