Here’s a new twist on this fall’s iPhone lineup: The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will reportedly have a glass back, too, just like the rumored iPhone 8.
A new rendering based on leaked size specifications puts the iPhone 8 right between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The memo hints at a mid-September iPhone 8 launch, but the actual blackout dates are puzzling.
It’s a pretty safe bet we know what the still unconfirmed iPhone 8 will look like when it’s unveiled this fall, and now we have a better idea of how it stacks up size-wise with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Reports so far say the iPhone 8 will be about the same size as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing in the leaked phone mold photos.
iPhone 8 mockups are popping up nearly daily, and the latest shows a physical model that’s in line with the designs we’ve been seeing over the past couple weeks. The model sports a glass front and back, vertical rear-facing camera lenses, but no Touch ID sensor on the back.
Another report is out saying the iPhone 8 will sport an almost bezel-free display, and this time it’s from Bloomberg. This one backs up what we’ve already heard: A bigger display in an iPhone 7-size body, curved glass edges, OLED, and no physical Home button.
Apple reportedly has two iPhone 8 designs in the works: one with the Touch ID sensor on the back, and the other with it embedded in the display glass. Yesterday’s leak showed the backside Touch ID sensor, and today we get to see what the version with the sensor in the display looks like.
If the schematic that leaked today is real, Apple is putting the Touch ID sensor on the back of the iPhone 8.
