New iPhone 8 Glimpse Combines Leaked Parts to Show Off What Device Might Look Like at Launch

Leaker Benjamin Geskin has posted a few new images and a video of what Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 might look like once it's in the hands of users later this year. Using a leaked dummy model, screen protector, and a printed picture of an iOS wallpaper, Geskin has put together the gist of what current rumors have suggested the iPhone 8 will look like once it's announced in the fall.

Geskin's images depict an iPhone 8 dummy model as we've seen previously, with a suggested 5.8-inch display area, minimal bezels, front-facing camera and sensor dip, but with an all-black frame instead of models that have previously depicted a rumored stainless steel frame. To give users a glimpse as to what the iPhone 8 display might look like when activated, Geskin then attached a picture of an iOS wallpaper to the dummy, and applied a screen protector on top.



The wallpaper Geskin used is part of a beach themed collection of images that appeared within the iOS 10.3.3 beta only for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but they have since appeared on the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and new 12.9-inch iPad Pro running iOS 10.3.2.

A video shared on Geskin's Twitter account has further provided a glimpse into the iPhone 8 dummy in motion.


The iPhone 8 is predicted to to be the first major iPhone redesign since the iPhone 6 in 2014, with additional features such as wireless charging and improved waterproofing to further bolster the smartphone's position as a premium device. Alongside the iPhone 8 will be the "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus," which are expected to keep the current iPhone 7 design while offering the usual iterative spec bumps like improved battery life and snappier performance.

You mean, thank you, Samsung? S6 edge came out two years ago...

Just saying.

What the **** does Samsung have to do with anything? Apple could have keep the iPhone bezels the same this year if they wanted to but they didn't--that's my point. Don't start that "who did it first crap."

1. Edge to edge curved display like Samsung (not a deal breaker and we need to have some sort of grip on the phone without touching the screen).

!


Ehh, Samsung can keep that. Not a fan of distorted content.

Cut out is ugly and it elimates 180 degree auto-rotation use of the display.

I'm 100% convinced that the TouchID will be on the back of the phone.

Based on your gut, when all of the reports in the last two months are saying it'll be on the front behind the display.

Hey, it's a start. Maybe in the 2019 iPhone (9), they will completely eliminate the cut out. Anything is better than that bezel fest iPhone we have now.
