'iPhone 8' Renders Offer Direct Size Comparisons With iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8

Alleged "iPhone 8" leaks have been coming fast and steady over recent weeks, with various schematics and protective case designs suggesting Apple has finalized the radical redesign destined for its tenth anniversary smartphone.

Many of the leaks we've been tracking in the last few days in particular offer few if any details beyond what we've already heard about Apple's upcoming OLED iPhone, but a couple of renders are making the rounds online that may give readers a clearer idea of how the new handset might look alongside current smartphones on the market.

In the above renders, originally published by iDrop News, an "iPhone 8" with edge-to-edge display is shown set in between Apple's existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The new handset is expected to be 144mm tall, 71mm wide, and 7.7mm thick, according to leaked design renderings and schematics. They compare to existing iPhone 7 dimensions of 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm.

Another render, pictured below, shows the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone in between the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Samsung's devices measure 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0mm and 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm, respectively. Taken together, the above numbers suggest Apple's redesigned handset will be slightly thicker than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 but not as thick as the Galaxy S8.

The last major rumor about the so-called "iPhone 8" came last week, when it was reported that Apple suppliers TSMC confirmed Apple had successfully integrated Touch ID fingerprint recognition into the OLED display.

The new handset is expected to release in the fall alongside upgraded "S" cycle versions of Apple's existing line-up. Other features for the high-end phone could include a front-facing dual-lens camera with 3D sensing capabilities and some form of wireless charging.

That upper ^^^^^^^^ camera and earpiece grill cutout from display looks ugly to be honest.Apple will never make it like that.

In comparison with Bezel less model iPhone 7 Plus looks so bulky and outdated with those massive bezels :mad:

This will be huge win win for me. Never liked the idea of rear touch id :D

The 7 Plus looks ridiculous in comparison, bigger case with smaller display

I don't like the cutout on the top, it would look weird when displaying full size content. I'd rather have a small bezel on the top to include camera and sensors

So we've pretty much established they're putting a 5.5" screen in a device roughly the same size as the previous 4.7" devices.

What I would like them to make is one step down from that. A 4.7" screen in a device roughly the same size as the previous 4" devices. "iPhone Edition SE"

I cringe every time I see renders like this one. Do people really think Apple is going to put an asymmetrical screen on an iPhone?

I agree, I see no purpose for the two left overs at both sides, besides for the battery, time and connection status
It wouldn't surprise me if it would work something like this:



Or this:



Either something in iOS 11 changes with the status bar or maybe some new functionality will be introduced to fill up the screen parts next to the camera.

I recall Apple having a patent for hiding the front facing camera behind the screen. I think this is what we might see - the camera will become visible when in use, and somehow blend into the display when it is not needed. No way is Apple going to make the same mistake the Essential phone did.
This wil not happen. The patent you are referring to is many years old and is just a theoretical solution. Just look how bad front facing cameras are right now and then try to imagine a screen in front of it. The tech is not ready for this yet. And even if it was, the screen part were the camera is would need to be able to turn transparent, so that part of the screen would be of a lower quality than the rest of the screen. It's not a solution for now or the next year sadly.
