Leaker Benjamin Geskin has posted a few new images and a video of what Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 might look like once it's in the hands of users later this year. Using a leaked dummy model, screen protector, and a printed picture of an iOS wallpaper, Geskin has put together the gist of what current rumors have suggested the iPhone 8 will look like once it's announced in the fall.

Geskin's images depict an iPhone 8 dummy model as we've seen previously, with a suggested 5.8-inch display area, minimal bezels, front-facing camera and sensor dip, but with an all-black frame instead of models that have previously depicted a rumored stainless steel frame. To give users a glimpse as to what the iPhone 8 display might look like when activated, Geskin then attached a picture of an iOS wallpaper to the dummy, and applied a screen protector on top.

The wallpaper Geskin used is part of a beach themed collection of images that appeared within the iOS 10.3.3 beta only for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but they have since appeared on the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and new 12.9-inch iPad Pro running iOS 10.3.2.

A video shared on Geskin's Twitter account has further provided a glimpse into the iPhone 8 dummy in motion.

The iPhone 8 is predicted to to be the first major iPhone redesign since the iPhone 6 in 2014, with additional features such as wireless charging and improved waterproofing to further bolster the smartphone's position as a premium device. Alongside the iPhone 8 will be the "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus," which are expected to keep the current iPhone 7 design while offering the usual iterative spec bumps like improved battery life and snappier performance.

Amazing rectangle with rounded corners and less bezel finally for 2017! Hope there's some trick like the rumored fingerprint under display.

God I hope this is it... Am I the only one thinking that we are about to get a simplified offering? iPhone 8 onward one screen size? From the rumors, we got the larger screen in the smaller footprint, wouldn't that be the ultimate goal?

Ah, gee, we really don't know if this is "most likely" what the iPhone 8 will look like. It might, but it might not. Apple has tried a number of different configurations, and just possibly, this might be one of them. We'll know better sometime in August, when real parts start getting stolen.

Cue people in the future saying "The design hasn't changed, it's still all display! Apple is dead, no innovation."

Did your quote start as the first? (Sarcasm).

I think this is the first iPhone I might wait in line this year for the experience and I have never done that before. Mainly being the Changes have me excited after three years of the same design and this iPhone looks to be very promising.
