The images floated on the web after tipster Benjamin Geskin posted the alleged leaked photos of the successor of iPhone 7. The dummy shown on the photos seems to agree with the long list of rumored specs of the new smartphone.
The image shows the new iPhone will no longer have a physical Home Button. The new smartphone has an all-glass, curved OLED display. This suggests that the tech giant has also jumped into the all-glass trend, which LG and Samsung have already begun.
With reference to the predecessor, the new iPhone has retained the dual camera set-up. However, the camera on the new smartphone has been placed vertically. Analysts believe this new vertical position will support the advanced augmented reality (AR) features of the camera.
The sleep/wake button on the current iPhone models has been retained too. The new iPhone 8 just have a longer shape button, compared to the button on the current models.
Furthermore, the tipster also posted on his official Twitter account another leaked specs of the new iPhone. According to the tweet, the new smartphone will likely have a long-range (5m) wireless charging.
Benjamin Geskin also posted an illustration of the rumored schematics of the upcoming iPhone 8. The tipster claims he got the illustration from a Weibo thread. He also made a new tweet of the illustrations in GIF form.
Famous tipster @OnLeaks also retweeted this post. He first captioned it with a warning, as he does not know the source and the legitimacy of the leak. However, he made a new tweet today which then confirms that the leak is "all but legit."
