Apple is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary iPhone this year. A wave of leaks and rumors have continued to hint at what the final next-gen iPhone will look like. Based on the rumors so far, the upcoming iPhone 8 is expected to have radical design changes, which include the return of glass back, removal of the front home button and a "bezel-less" display.
According to the leaked live images of what's expected to be the iPhone 8, the next-gen iPhone features a glass body with aluminum border whereas the front will have an edge-to-edge display. The new leak gave nod to previous rumors regarding the inclusion of a vertical rectangle pattern for the new dual camera set up. This latest round of leaks from Benjamin Geskin said that the photos are supposedly CNC dummy models of the said iPhone 8 chassis.
The major change that we have seen in the latest image gallery from Geskin is that the said iPhone 8 dummy doesn't have any rear Touch ID button in sight which implies that this design would see Apple integrating the fingerprint biometric scanner into the display itself. Like we have mentioned previously, Apple tested out several prototypes and one of them might have a rear-mounted Touch ID sensor.
Furthermore, analysts are forecasting that the next-gen iPhone will help anchor the biggest refresh cycle in iPhone history. The iPhone 8 is believed to be the most compelling new iPhone release since the iPhone 5 was announced, according to a source. Moreover, the iPhone 8 will boast a brand new redesign, a major overhaul given that the current iPhone form factor has remained stagnant since 2014. Furthermore, the iPhone 8 will most likely introduce a whole host of other compelling features such as improved battery life, wireless charging functionality, and also augmented reality features.
