New leaked photos claim to show the iPhone 8 in all its glory – and it is beautiful


A new set of photos which claim to show the iPhone 8 have leaked online.

The stunning new images which comes from renowned tech tipster Onleaks, have reportedly been based leaked CAD images.

The leaked photos could give the best hint yet at what the iPhone 8 will look like.

The computer aided renders reportedly come from blueprints sent to operators in Apple’s supply chain and consequently mean the leaked images are much more detailed than in previous photos.

The photos show an iPhone 8 similar in size but a little thicker than the iPhone 7, measuring in a 143.5 x 70.9 x 7.7mm.

The images also show the iPhone 8 with a curved stainless steel design, which is a modern take on the steel design of the iPhone 4 and 4S.

As is widely tipped with the iPhone 8, the images show the display to take up the whole of the front of the phone, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8.

However, where the iPhone 8 will differ from its rival is that rather than feature a curved display it will instead merge with the stainless steel border of the phone, making it basically the iPhone 7, just slightly thicker and with an infinity display.

The reverse of the device shows the vertical dual camera setup that has been purported in other leaked photos.

The images however do not reveal what Apple may have planned for its Home Button or Touch ID sensor.

Previous reports claimed Apple was having technical issues incorporating the sensor into new infinity display and may be forced to move the sensor to the reverse of the device.

Elsewhere the iPhone 8 is also tipped to be the first Apple phone to include an OLED display after the Cupertino firm is believed to have place a bumper order for 70 million OLED panels from Samsung.

Regarding the release of the iPhone 8, analysts at JP Morgan have claimed the device will debut in September alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, before it goes on sale in October.
