iPhone 8 case leak hints at new design tweaks

A video posted online of purported iPhone 8 accessories hints at what to expect from Apple's next handset.

The video shows a case and a screen protector, based on leaked iPhone 8 specs. They have no cutout for a home button, suggesting Apple will kill off the longstanding physical button in favour of some kind of on-screen equivalent.

They also have almost no space for bezels down the side, though those at the top and bottom are thicker. This is understandable, as they have to house the front-facing camera and sensors.

The next iPhone is rumoured to have more sensors than the iPhone 7, which could mean augmented reality and/or facial recognition features are on the cards.

Around the back, there's space for a vertically-aligned dual camera, while on the side, the power button seems bigger.

The reason? Apple might house the fingerprint sensor within it, if it can't manage to fit it in the screen.

The accessories also suggest the iPhone 8 will have a 5.8-inch screen.

These are all completely unofficial, so take them with a pinch of salt for now. However, they do square with previous rumours, which suggests they're more than mere hearsay...

The iPhone 8 is expected to be announced in September.
