iPhone 8 dummy model shown off in video

We've still got two months until Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 8, but the leaks are already ramping up. Today we bring you what purports to be a dummy model of Apple's next smartphone, shown off in a hands-on video.

The video was posted by EverythingApplePro and depicts a mock-up of the iPhone 8 based on leaked specs from Apple's supply chain that were supposedly obtained by case-manufacturers.

Case-makers hunt out specs for new iPhones early in order to get their accessories ready, so they're on sale when the phone hits shop shelves.

Sadly, the dummy model in the video doesn't turn on. But we do get to see how the handset will look.

The power button is longer than the one on the iPhone 7, and the bezels (that's the borders around the display) are so thin as to be almost non-existent.

There's no physical home button, as this is rumoured to be replaced by a virtual one which is placed beneath the screen, complete with the fingerprint sensor.

The dual camera lenses are also aligned vertically, rather than horizontally.

These are all in keeping with the rumours we've heard so far, so there's a chance this dummy could be on the money. Though Apple could well change the design before the unveiling, so take it all with a pinch of salt for now.

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 in early September. This year is the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone, so expectations are high that Apple will pull something pretty incredible out of the bag.
