iPhone 8 Leaked Drawings Show Impressive Several New Features And One Controversial Move
Apple is under a lot of pressure nowadays no thanks to Samsung and its vastly impressive Galaxy S8 but the tech giant is up to the challenge with its upcoming iPhone 8. However, a recent leak showing sketches of the possible flagship smartphone from Apple has garnered some mixed reactions.
According to Trusted Reviews, the leaked drawings were discovered on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Facebook. The rough sketches of the front and back sides of the Apple device were posted o Weibo by someone who goes by KK. According to the post, the drawings was supposedly made by a Foxconn employee who has seen the final design of the iPhone 8 which is now rumored to be launched in October or even later instead of the traditional September release.
Despite the sketchy post, the leaker is known for having a good track record when it comes to these things. What makes the leak more believable is that it confirms one of the rumors surrounding the anniversary iPhone. I what is considered a controversial move, if Apple does push through with it, is that the dual camera will appear in a vertical fashion at the rear of the smartphone. This particular rumor started when iDrop reported that someone at Foxconn said that the flagship device will be called the iPhone Editon and will come with dual cameras arranged vertically instead of the usual horizontal order. In the drawing, the vertically-arranged dual camera is located at the upper left corner. Despite this mainly unwanted design feature, the post also indicated that the cameras will come with 3D functionality as well as augmented reality capabilities.
As indicated by the drawings, the annoying antenna lines are now gone. The antennas will now be located on the four corners of the iPhone 8. Another interesting point provided by the sketch is the lack of cutouts for the front-facing camera. This suggests that the camera will be embedded behind the screen which, as BGR noted, has been patented before by Apple. Also missing in the drawing are the home button and Touch ID sensor which also suggests that they will be located under the screen.
