A set of iPhone 8 schematics have allegedly leaked providing information about Apple’s upcoming iPhone. This is what the 10th anniversary iPhone will look like if this leak was real and anything to go accurate, which is the first one of this particular nature pertaining to Apple’s next-generation smartphone. Now, giving us an insight into the design changes that will make it into the iPhone designed to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the device.
A photograph that supposedly shows Apple’s iPhone 8 diagram – posted on Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo. Technically said to have been acquired directly from the Foxconn, the absolute manufacturer charged with assembling Apple’s iPhone hardware.
The purported leak seems to offer some of the same iPhone 8 design details we expect. However, there are some major differences compared to previous rumors, especially concerning the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the rear dual camera setup. Virtually, the iPhone 8 might be 8.6mm thick. The leaked image is by no means a full breakdown of the speculated device, but does pushes out the glimpse of the front and back of the device to allow us to learn a little bit more about the hardware, as well as make some additional assumptions on what we may be getting this coming September date.
First of all, the leaked image present the front of Apple’s next-gen iPhone quite clearly speak of a device with minimal bezels around the display. The speaker at the top of the phone, as well as the front-facing camera aperture, is clearly visible. Other than that here comes a device which is predominantly influenced by the large display, which is presumably be an OLED panel.
Probably, there’s no sign of a physical Home button, and potentially no space left underneath the display for one to be added, which would directly suggest that we are indeed about to get an iPhone with a implicit Home button experience. If these diagrams are legitimate, obviously.
From the back part of the device, the exposure immediately show a redesigned camera module on the top-left hand side, with the virtual dual-camera arrangement rather than horizontal. You will also find to spot the presence of the familiar-looking LED flash. Most interesting thing these schematics show is that the Touch ID sensor has been moved to the back of the hardware in very un-Apple like measure, which would apparently suggest that company may have abandoned plans to have a virtual Home button experience with the Touch ID sensor embedded below the display. The button, which shows the Lightning connector and speaker grilles, actually doesn’t seem to have changed at all.
The majority of iPhone 8 schematics details the dimensions of the iPhone 8, which instantly seem to corroborate earlier reports suggesting that the iPhone 8 will have a chassis that would be about the same size as the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. The iPhone 8 is shown to be 11mm taller, and 5.4mm wider than the iPhone 7.
Only suggestion to all those subscribers and audience who care to believe anything beyond the potential reveals, rather still need to treat them entirely with a pinch of salt until we see any corroborating evidence to suggest they are legitimate. Some of the things shown in the leak are expected, and some varies, such as the Touch ID sensor on the back of the hardware, leaves us to believe this could be an elaborate mockup, or one of the possible concept designs still being considered for this year’s iPhone. Stay tuned for more!
