iPhone 8’s alleged ‘dummy’ shows up in leaked images

Apple’s is set to launch its much-anticipated 10th anniversary smartphone this year. Likely to be called iPhone 8 (or the iPhone Edition), the pictures of the upcoming smartphone have reportedly leaked online. The images shared by a Twitter user @VenyaGeskin1 shows the front, side and back panels of the alleged dummy version of the handset.As per the alleged leaked images of the device, the smartphone will sport a metal + glass build. The display has minimal bezels, with bezels going edge-to-edge as widely rumoured. The Twitter user in the post says that the device seen in the images is a CNC model according from Foxconn. Also mentioned is that there’s a 2.5D coating at the back panel.
It has been further claimed that the new iPhone 8 will come with 7.1mm thickness, same as the iPhone 7.
It is worth adding that neither the front nor the back panel of the handset is seen with a TouchID fingerprint sensor. This further cements the rumours that the smartphone may feature a display with fingerprint sensor embedded. While the front and back are covered with glass, all four sides are covered with polished metal rims, which is said to come in black colour by the time it launches. This will make the smartphone in all black colour.
The volume buttons and the silent/mute button is placed on the same left side, while the right side includes the SIM slot and the power button.
Incidentally, the device has no Apple logo, which raises questions on the veracity of the images being that of iPhone 8.
As per previous speculations, Apple is working on two variants of iPhone 8. While one includes aluminium components for a sturdy build, the other is said to feature an all-glass design.
Apple is also planning to beef-up the feature list of the rumoured smartphone with 3D technology. The smartphone is even being said to be delayed due to this feature. In a report, Bloomberg claimed that Apple has built a team, including experienced hardware and software developers to push the AR efforts in its devices. The group is led by former Dolby Laboratories executive and includes formers members from Oculus and HoloLens divisions that are currently under Facebook and Microsoft respectively.
