Alleged "iPhone 8" leaks have been coming fast and steady over recent weeks, with various schematics and protective case designs suggesting Apple has finalized the radical redesign destined for its tenth anniversary smartphone.

Many of the leaks we've been tracking in the last few days in particular offer few if any details beyond what we've already heard about Apple's upcoming OLED iPhone, but a couple of renders are making the rounds online that may give readers a clearer idea of how the new handset might look alongside current smartphones on the market.


In the above renders, originally published by iDrop News, an "iPhone 8" with edge-to-edge display is shown set in between Apple's existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The new handset is expected to be 144mm tall, 71mm wide, and 7.7mm thick, according to leaked design renderings and schematics. They compare to existing iPhone 7 dimensions of 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm.

Another render, pictured below, shows the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone in between the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Samsung's devices measure 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0mm and 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm, respectively. Taken together, the above numbers suggest Apple's redesigned handset will be slightly thicker than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 but not as thick as the Galaxy S8.


The last major rumor about the so-called "iPhone 8" came last week, when it was reported that Apple suppliers TSMC confirmed Apple had successfully integrated Touch ID fingerprint recognition into the OLED display.

The new handset is expected to release in the fall alongside upgraded "S" cycle versions of Apple's existing line-up. Other features for the high-end phone could include a front-facing dual-lens camera with 3D sensing capabilities and some form of wireless charging.

That upper ^^^^^^^^ camera and earpiece grill cutout from display looks ugly to be honest.Apple will never make it like that.

In comparison with Bezel less model iPhone 7 Plus looks so bulky and outdated with those massive bezels :mad:

The 7 Plus looks ridiculous in comparison, bigger case with smaller display

I don't like the cutout on the top, it would look weird when displaying full size content. I'd rather have a small bezel on the top to include camera and sensors

Based on the renders, I prefer the thin bezels of the iPhone to the edges of the Sammies.

However, I despise the dropped upper border for the camera. It ought to go all the way across.

Finally, the aspect ratio of the longer thinner Sammies still looks goofy to me.

I'm having a tough time imagining how the new iPhones will line up this fall.

Will they have a 7s, 7s Plus and '8'? Will they all have a new A11?

I'm starting to wonder if the 7 and 7 Plus will stick around with the A10 and then the '8' sits above them with an A11 and other new hardware. Hmm.

would love edge to edge screen in iphone 5 size. Iphone 7 screen packed into smaller shorter package. Perfect for pockets but still offering big 4.7 screen. I don't get it, why smartphone manufacturing goes in such a weird direction?
They made better battery? Instead of increasing battery life they make phones thin.
They made a better screen? Instead of making a smaller phone with the same screen size they pump that phone to a big size. No wonder they abandoned the iPad mini - next iphone 8+ will have similiar screen.

There's no way the iPhone will have 0 bezels, it's just not possible or desirable. You couldn't hold the phone without touching or covering the screen.
Where have I heard this before?

Its looking more and more like apple may call it the edition.

I dont see apple curving the display for the camera... Much more sense just to put it on top the screen like the S8.

you can use the edges to keep displaying battery, signal, notifications even when using device fullscreen.

There's a chance the black will go all the way across in iOS, or so I've heard.

I hope that is the case. I avoid using the name as I feel like I'll jinx it lol. Gotta get away from the numbers.

So we've pretty much established they're putting a 5.5" screen in a device roughly the same size as the previous 4.7" devices.

What I would like them to make is one step down from that. A 4.7" screen in a device roughly the same size as the previous 4" devices. "iPhone Edition SE"
