The upcoming iPhones have been leaked on several occasions, and recently we also had a glimpse of how the chassis would look. A new report from iDrop News says that the iPhone 8 will be much heftier as opposed to the iPhone 7 and it will be positioned in between the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus.
The report further claims that its sources, who are “factory workers with intimate knowledge” confirm that the iPhone 8 will measure 143.59 x 70.94 x7.57 and the iPhone 8 will also be thicker than the iPhone 7 Plus which measures at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3mm. That being said, the iPhone 8 will still be having a smaller overall footprint.
iPhone 8 may also be on the heftier side as opposed to the current iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. The images further show how the iPhone 8 will look drastically different as opposed to the iPhone 7 all thanks to the bezel-less display and the ditched home button. For the sake of comparison, the image below shows the new iPhone 8 put up against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. Since the Galaxy S8 measures at 8mm and the S8+ at 8.1mm, the iPhone 8 will be slimmer than both the devices at 7.57mm.
Story so far
There have been a handful of reports so far, and they have all collaborated on pretty much the same thing but in increased details. Apple is expected to come up with three iPhones this year including the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 is expected to arrive with a bezel-less display, and the traditional iPhone home button will be traded in for an in-screen Touch ID technology. That being said there is no way to authenticate the reports and in all likelihood, the production version might differ from the ones leaked.
