iPhone 8 Render Shows Apple Is Copying The Samsung Galaxy S8
A supposed render showing the possible schematics of the iPhone 8 was leaked yesterday, April 13. The most striking part of the render, which was posted on Weibo and seen on SlashLeaks, is the back portion of the device. The drawing shows that the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the smartphone just underneath the Apple logo. Samsung already made that move with the Galaxy S8 though it did place its fingerprint scanner to the right of the camera. Furthermore, moving the Touch ID to the back may solve one of Apple's rumored problems with the iPhone 8. As CNET mentioned, the company apparently cannot proceed with the mass production of its 5.8-inch OLED displays because of difficulty integrating the fingerprint sensor into the display. There is supposedly three main solutions being considered: delaying the release of the iPhone 8 until they figure out what to do, removing the fingerprint scanner altogether, or placing it at the back like what is indicated in the leak.
The drawings also featured a vertical dual camera set-up placed on the upper left corner of the iPhone 8. This confirms another leak that surfaced a few days earlier which showed a sketch supposedly made by someone from Foxconn who had seen the final design of the iPhone 8.
The front side of the device also confirms a number of speculations. The new iPhone has long been rumored to be ditching the iconic home button. In the render, the 10th anniversary iPhone has a larger screen thanks to slimmer bezels and the lack the home button which may be assumed to be embedded under the display.
MacRumors believe the render is just one of the many designs of the iPhone 8. There were previous rumors that Apple was working on at least ten prototypes for its next flagship smartphone and chances are this leaked render is just one of them.
