A new series of iPhone 8 component leaks has potentially revealed the design of Apple’s upcoming handset, including its edge-to-edge display.
There seldom seems to be a day go by that we haven’t had yet another glimpse at Apple’s rumoured iPhone 8 or iPhone Edition handset, and now a new component leak has pictured the device’s front and rear design.
Courtesy of iDrop News, the leak depicts the handset’s front panel – which includes an edge-to-edge display – and further pictures the handset’s rear chassis; giving more indication that the device will indeed accommodate a vertically-aligned primary camera.
The leak comes via a Redditor who notes that both panels have reportedly been sent to Chinese manufacturers over the past week; recent reports have confirmed that Apple has greenlit production of the device for either a September or November reveal.
The leak positions the device next to the shape of what appears to be an iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus; a recent leak of production moldings has further indicated that the iPhone 8 might well sit in-between the standard iPhone 7s and it’s larger sibling in terms of size.
Interestingly, the rear panel of the iPhone 8 seemingly lacks a cutout for a traditional Touch ID sensor module; indicating that Apple may well have succeeded in embedding a fingerprint scanner beneath the primary display of its next iPhone.
Some reports have indicated that Apple – like Samsung’s efforts with the Galaxy S8 – might well be forced to integrate a rear fingerprint scanner in the event that one cannot be embedded beneath the device’s primary display.
