 iPhone 8 Edition photos just leaked. Romurs have been surfacing online

Although Apple has previously launched its gadgets in early summer, recent reports suggest that Apple and its manufacturing partners are having troubles with a key piece of the technology expected to debut in Apple’s tenth- anniversary Smartphone, and therefore raising expectations of the iPhone 8 to be released in the late summer; in September of this year.

With anticipation killing Apple fans, rumors about the coming gadget keep going around and have been spiced up by photo leaks that are claimed to be the iPhone 8. A source with a mixed track record shared a leaked schematic drawing several days ago on Chinese Twitter, claiming that it is the image of the expected iPhone 8 rear housing design. The image shows a phone that looks like a flattened iPhone 5, but an extra hole is identified beneath the Apple logo. Rumors’ have it that the hole could be for the relocation of the Touch ID fingerprint to the rear side of the device. The rumors are based on the ground that Apple has been working for years to embed its touch ID sensor beneath the iPhone’s display, a technology that was expected to display first on the iPhone 8. However, it has been said that Apple faced problems getting its new embedded scanner to the point where it can be mass- produced, hence opting for the relocation to the back of the phone.

The idea of the iPhone 8 coming with a Touch ID scanner on the back has received hateful reactions from Apple fans who claim that that design would be terrible. One fan wrote, “…try holding your iPhone now and reaching your index figure that far below the Apple Logo…” indicating how disastrous the placement of the Touch ID could be if the leaked image is true and correctly interpreted. Many people have declared the image a fake, while other feel that if it is true Apple could probably change the design following the critics. The image also shows the space for the volume rocker and mute switch.

Benjamin Geskin, a tipster, has however recently shed more light on the design of the expected iPhone 8. The images he leaked indicate that the device will sport a glass back with a 2.5D curved glass and vertical dual camera setup. The front is also all glass, with no bezel visible. There is no fingerprint scanner at the back, and no Home Button in the front, indicating that the fingerprint scanner will indeed be embedded underneath the display. Just like with the current iPhone models, the metal edges house the buttons, though the power button seems a little more elongated.

Geskin also speculated that the iPhone 8 will sport a dual front camera and will be 7.1mm thick. Geskin noted the visibility of the camera bump, which is still not flashed. These are CNC dummy models from Foxconn, according to the tipster, and he also leaked schematics based on blueprints, and it shows the amount of area that will be the display in the front, as well as the dual front camera setup.
