iPhone 8 images give clearest look yet at Apple’s plans

Based on Apple blueprints, could this look just like the real thing?

A new set of renders of the iPhone 8 appear to offer the best idea so far of what to expect from the tenth-anniversary handset when it launches this autumn.

The designs by Benjamin Geskin, renowned for his renders based on smartphone leaks, are based on blueprints for what he dubs the iPhone X, Apple’s next flagship phone.

Although the handset is widely known as the iPhone 8, many believe Apple will stop numbering its phones and use 'X' to mark the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone.

Geskin says the iPhone X will utilise 2.5D glass, the same as that found in the current iPhone 7 line-up, tallying with previous claims that Apple will not be using a curved display similar to that found in Samsung’s Galaxy S8.

He also adds that Touch ID will feature beneath the screen. It’s believed that this technology could delay the release of the iPhone X, with some analysts claiming it may not even be included in the final model.

Geskin says that the frame will be just 4mm thick, and his images also show plans for a vertical camera. The latter could allow the iPhone X to work inside a virtual reality headset.

The iPhone X is likely to launch in early September.
