A new image leaked of the alleged iPhone 8 appeared on the web and displays what could the body of the next Apple smartphone. According to the original source, this image would arrive directly from Foxconn and would show the official industrial design of the iPhone 8. As for the front, they notice a lot thinner frames than those found on current models, especially with regard to the side . On the lower frame there is no Home button, a sign that Apple could integrate a virtual button in the so-called “functional area” integrated in the bottom of the screen.
The schematics shows an iPhone 8 with measures 149 mm high, 72.5 mm wide and 7.1 mm thick – leaving aside the double camera – and to compare with the current model we are talking about That the iPhone 7 has a measurement of 138 mm high, 67.1 mm wide and 7.1 mm thick, so the OLED screen in this case would be much larger than the iPhone 7 which is 4.7-inch reaching 5.8-inch.
Placing the Touch ID in the back may be uncomfortable in some situations, for example when we are loading the device on a table or simply when we have it on the table. It is true that there is talk of the iris scanner for the unlock for this model of iPhone, but it is something that many users do not want to see on the iPhone but rather implemented. On the other hand, having the camera vertically is something that has also been rumored for this new iPhone, worse hopefully not so finally since we do not see the utility to have the camera in that position and the LED flash just below. Aesthetically and in my personal opinion, the iPhone thus would be ugly for more screen without frames that has in front.
We will wait and see if there is more data pointing towards this road but we are really many that we hope this new iPhone does not have this design in the back, despite the improvement on the screen.
