After months of rumours and renders based on leaked drawings, the first parts of Apple’s long–awaited iPhone 8 appear to have leaked online.
Images of the front and rear panels and lens component for the device’s camera appear to confirm what has long been expected: That the iPhone 8 will feature a vertical, dual lens camera and a bezel–free front.

The components also suggest the Touch ID fingerprint scanner will be embedded in the handset’s display.
The rear panel has no cut-out for a fingerprint scanner, meaning it’s safe to assume that Apple’s hopes of placing the security tech behind the screen have become reality.
The design of the screen also suggests there will be a cut-out at the top of the phone for the front–facing camera and other essential sensors.
It had been unclear until now whether Apple would look to place these behind the display.
While the veracity of the image has not been confirmed, it seems highly likely these parts are the real thing.
Leakers say they come from a case-maker who received them from a Chinese supplier.
The iPhone 8 is expected to launch in September.
