iPhone 8: Rumors say Apple has plans to dramatically change the iPhone 8. We have published several of these, but to date there have been only rumors.
Today, we have even more rumors, but come from two very reliable sources in the mobile phone industry and, as it seems, each confirms the other.
The first is Steve Hemmerstoffer or OnLeaks on Twitter - which reportedly has the detailed design for Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone.
According to Hemmerstoffer, the information comes directly from the factory that manufactures the upcoming iPhone, and then used by the CNC to create an original.
The results are basically what we have been waiting for and heard: thinner round corners, an 5,8 inch screen with a bulging camera at the back. The new 5,8 inch screen size is slightly larger than the 5 Plus 5.5 inch. But its footprint, due to smaller bezels, is smaller.
Oversized smartphones are clearly the trend of 2017: huge new screens on very thin mobiles. IPhone 8 seems to overtake them all.
After multiple leaks, new information from Weibo (through Slashleaks) again shows how Apple is preparing to radically change the 2017 iPhone.
What makes iPhone users happy is to replace the central home button with an invisible touch at the bottom of the screen.
According to the caliper measurements of the standard device, 8 is actually smaller than 7 Plus.
- iPhone 8 - 143.5 x 71 x 7.5 mm (5.65 x 2.79 x 0.29 in)
- iPhone 7 - 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in)
- iPhone 7 Plus - 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm (6.23 x 3.07 x 0.29 in)
The manufacturer of Olixar cases has confirmed the above dimensions.
Having already leaked the specifications for the iPhone 7, the Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy S8, I could bet that Olixar is once again right with the dimensions.
