iPhone 8 leaked video provides most detailed look yet

A video based on leaked blueprints for the iPhone 8 has given us our best look so far at Apple's next-generation smartphone.

It comes courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka @OnLeaks, who has a very good track record of being on the money when it comes to Apple leaks and obtained the blueprints "from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone".

Want more iPhone 8 news? We've collated all the speculation for our rumours round-up.

As you can see, the bezels (that's the parts of the phone that frame the screen) look a lot thinner than the iPhone 7, which allows Apple to incorporate a larger screen without making the phone itself any larger.

This approach is in keeping with rival high-end handsets that have launched this year, namely the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.)

The iPhone 8's screen is said to be 5.8 inches diagonally, though thanks to the thinner bezels, it should actually be a smaller handset than the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

The new vertically-oriented dual-lens rear camera is also present and correct.

The quad-LED True Tone flash sits in between the two lenses. The camera set-up could enable augmented reality features (where virtual elements are imposed onto your view of the real world, like Pokemon Go).

There's no home button on the front. Instead, it's likely to be incorporated into the screen, if Apple can work in the Touch ID fingerprint sensor beneath the glass.

Of course, none of this is official yet, so take it all with a pinch of salt.

The video also makes the disclaimer that the final design could change before the iPhone 8's expected launch in September.
