As you can see in the image, the idea is very similar to the one we already saw referenced a few days ago in this article. We can also see the dimensions that will have the iPhone 8, filtered already previously, according to the image, the size is somewhat larger than an iPhone 7 but smaller than an iPhone 7 Plus.
Something that is not appreciated are the volume buttons, but may be covered by some component. Instead we can differentiate the power button, the sound switch – which has been rumored for quite some time that Apple intends to eliminate – and the slot for the nano SIM card.
The doubt is in the hole of the current connector. USB-C or Lightning?
There are still many rumors that indicate that it will be placed in the back, as is the case, and others that will integrate somehow in the front.
This image clearly shows the hole that would have left to place it, which would confirm that Apple still does not have enough technology developed to implement it on the screen in some way. We remember that we can already see the fingerprint reader on a multitude of Android phones.
It has even been speculated to incorporate a front camera to be able to unlock iPhone by face recognition. What is clear is that every time the rumors point more towards a Touch ID in the back. We will see how users would react in the event that this possibility becomes real.
