    If that's the 7s and 7s Plus i wonder if the 8/"Pro"/Edition is made out of something else? Ceramic would be great (like the Apple Watch Edition) but i doubt it, In fact i wonder if those separate images showing the bottom are for the 8, it's the 8 that is rumoured to have the stainless steel frame in between the glass.

    The dummy unit of the 7X leaked within the past 24 hours shows a glass back. The band in the middle is metal.

    So it could be metal for the 7s and 7s Plus but stainless steel for the iPhone 8.

    Good point. Stainless steel vs. aluminum.

    This is FAKE!!!

    These pictures are from Sonny Dickson! This gentleman only posted photoshopped images in the last 2 years. I don't trust him, but who knows...

    It's stainless steel a metal. For all of them.

    No the iPhone 8 is rumoured to be the only one with stainless steel.

    We'll see. Considering the rigidity it needs having glass front and back, it's likely to be stainless on all, like the iPhone 4 and 4s.

    It is kind of strange for you to cite a rumor as a definitive counterpoint. :)

    Well it is Macrumours and nothing is definitive until Apple announce it ;)

    I would say an OLED screen with a cutout at the top is definitive. At least >95% confidence that happens.

    Looks exactly the same as current 7.

    Anyway stainless steel is still one type of metal. Same as aluminium :D

    Definitely considering this. I am one of the few who just does not want a device with little to no bezel.

    My only other qualm will be if they are only going with Intel or are they doing like they've always done? Had two 6s with totally different battery life, one TSMC and one Samsung. Just like I tried my friends Verizon (Qualcomm) iPhone 7 and had way lower dBm than my Intel 7 Plus.

    I hope this is true because we had the same design in pass iPhones for at least 3 generations.... (iPhone 6,6S,7) And we had the same design (Kinda) in the iPhone 5S.

    But I do like the aluminum casing on iPhones, but their hasn't been a huge design refresh for a while now. The design refresh from the iPhone 5S to the iPhone 6 was a huge jump and the jump to the iPhone 7 was more like a "Tic-Tock" design refresh.

    It’s the same damn design we’ve been looking at since 2014 with a new color/finish... **** you Apple you cheap piece of **** how many houses and boats do your VP’s and Directors need to own? Use some of those billions to R&D something new you *******s.

    I do agree about the billions of dollars and the same design.

    Multi billion dollar company not spending a single penny on R&D. Same design for freaking 4 years

    Good question. I have also wondered if it will be Qualcomm or Intel.

    Said so eloquently. But my exact feelings also. Looks like a retro phone in the new bezel-less world.

    Will it be heavier with the glass and stainless steel? I hope not. A new and improved phone that is heavier than the old one, no thanks!
