Thanks to a series of leak we now have a fair idea of how the next generation iPhone would look. A lot is being talked about how Apple will be introducing three iPhones this year including the iPhone 8 which will be a premium bezel-less phone. The latest set of iPhone images clearly show off the front and the rear panels of both the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 8.
The images have been apparently sourced by “a friend in the industry”, and the same has been discussed on Reddit. The alleged iPhone 8 panels show off how the smartphone will come with a bezel-less display and it further hints at an onscreen fingerprint sensor since we don’t see a placement for the typical home button cutout with TouchID integrated or a cutout for the fingerprint sensor at the rear.
The only peculiar bit is the fact that the iPhone 8 panel comes with a top cutout that will house the front camera and the earpiece, something that the recently launched Essentials phone is ridiculed for. But apart from the top cutout for the camera, the panels sport very slim bezels. Also worth noting is the vertical cutout at the top for the dual lens camera unit, and this is something that corroborates with the previous leaks.
Moving on, the next picture shows how the iPhone 8 panels may look when it’s stacked against the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Most importantly as revealed in the earlier leaks the iPhone 8 has a smaller footprint than the iPhone 7s. Also worth noting is that the back panels are made out of glass panels instead of aluminum, and this perhaps has something to do with the wireless charging functionality that is expected to debut with the next iteration of iPhone. Even this time around it’s just the iPhone 7s Plus that will get the dual camera lens setup at the rear.
