iPhone 8 case leak backs up rumours of vertical camera and front-facing Touch ID

A leaked case for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 appears to confirm a number of rumours about the device which have surfaced in recent weeks.

The clear case has a cutout designed for a vertical camera, a feature that now seems certain to be part of the iPhone 8 when it launches later this year.

Such a camera would allow the iPhone 8 to work with a virtual reality (VR) headset, something which Apple has long been rumoured to have in the pipeline.

Elsewhere, the case does not have a cutaway for a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, once again pointing towards Apple placing its Touch ID sensor behind the all–screen front of the iPhone 8.

Some insiders had suggested that manufacturing challenges related the latter feature could have led to Apple placing the scanner on the back of the phone, much as Samsung has done with its Galaxy S8.

Apple is likely to reveal the iPhone 8 in September, with an on–sale date following in October or November.
