Final Apple iPhone 8 schematics allegedly leaked by Foxconn insider

3D models of the Apple iPhone 8


Some years, the big leak that reveals what the next iPhone is going to look like is right in front of our faces. Take the totally redesigned Apple iPhone 4 which Steve Jobs compared to a "beautiful old Leica camera." Exactly seven-years ago today, an Apple iPhone 4 was found on the floor of a bar in San Jose. Soon, images of the next iPhone were all over the place. In March 2014, a factory worker inside Foxconn leaked out photos showing the design of the Apple iPhone 6. Mind you, these images were taken in March, a good half a year before the phone was unveiled. Already, you could see the protruding camera and the antenna lines from the CAD CAM images on the computer screen.

Today, a schematic diagram supposedly lifted from a Foxconn factory reveals what is said to be the final design of the 10th-anniversary model, the Apple iPhone 8. The diagram is said to be the actual one used in the manufacturing process to help build the device, which will feature a 5.8-inch OLED screen using 2.5D glass. As previously leaked by Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 8's front-facing camera will employ a 3D scanner with face recognition capabilities. Apple could be having issues with the production of this technology, which is one reason why the phone might be delayed.

According to the source, the side buttons will not be mechanical. You cannot press them down, but you will feel haptic feedback when you adjust the volume or turn on the phone. The power button is long enough to be used for two different functions, and Touch ID will be embedded under the screen. As recent rumors and sketches have shown, the dual camera setup on back could be laid out in a vertical fashion.

We do suggest that you take all of this information and the accompanying images with a pinch or salt (heck, you might need two). Although past scenarios have proven that the design of the next-gen iPhone can be discovered five to six-months in advance, those kind of situations are rare indeed. Still, it doesn't hurt to ask yourself if you would be happy with this design if the schematics turn out to be legitimate.

Besides the leaked schematics, you will find 3D models of the Apple iPhone 8 for your viewing pleasure. Simply click on the slideshow below.

Calling it ugly based on a bland drawing...okay then. Sounds like you had a bias against iPhone from the get-go, so your opinion is very much irrelevant.

So you're saying a drawing can't be ugly?

Looks are subjective. He finds it ugly. If you don't then so what. Its anm opinion.

Get so tired of you fools always want to start an argument over an opinion. He thinks its ugly. He isnt wrong because you dont agree. And agreeing with someone doesn't mean they are right.

That's the problem with you iDiots. You have no respect for an opinion that doesn't agree with your own.

The camera like that in the corner is "ugly". I personally don't find the phone to be 100% ugly. But the S8 certainly looks better.

What would be good is if, iOS 11 has a new UI that brings out the phone looks. If they plan to keep using the girly fag colors of iOS 7...it is gonna be ugly.

Samsung changed the UI to make the phone look ever better and its a nice blend.

A building's blueprints are ugly but that doesn't mean the building is. That is what aegislash meant when he said calling it ugly based on a drawing because that isn't a drying of the 2017 iPhone it's a schematic or blueprint.

"That's the problem with you iDiots. You have no respect for an opinion that doesn't agree with your own."

Lmaoooooooooo, oh Techie. Pot calling the kettle black at its' finest.

Let's be real here. Had this been a Note8 schematic and someone called it ugly, you'd be typing out essay after essay telling them that they should just kill themselves.

You're in absolutely NO position to be telling anyone to respect someone else's opinion. The only reason you're so defensive of their opinion is because it's a negative one about a potential Apple product.

Exactly Arch, it's a grey drawing with some red lines...wait until we at least see the phone in the flesh before determining whether it's ugly or not.

This question is completely unrelated to Android and iOS. The question is: are you gay?

Really? Just the other day you jumped all over someone because they didn't like something about the S8, even tho it was that persons opinion. You are a total hypocrite. You start an argument anytime someone says something negative about samsung, even tho they have the right to state their opinion, you are right there with an essay about how they are wrong. Im sure you'll deny it tho.

i would appreciate if apple would finally start producing something that is at least wort half of the price what they offer. i mean i was in store on weekend to check out s8 + samsung and after i checked out iphone 7+ and simply put, its not even close to be compared what other companies are providing for less money. i am not die hard android user i used to have iphone 5s, i would go back to apple ecosystem if there would be something worth the money, since i use macbook.

And you really think that those images are real? The camera is inside the display? And not even shown in the other renders anymore?
Yeh sure.

I was just reading about how apple is having issues with embedding the Touch ID fingerprint scanner under the screen, and that facial/Iris recognition might be used instead for things like Apple Pay.

Right now the S8 is a reality and its a beautiful phone. But when another leak showed a vertical camera, evefryone was whining that Apple wouldnt make that.

I'd say they are. Samsung considered it too as we have seen a leak actual S8 with it.

Their must be a benefit in this design. Like maybe the cameras side by side if for a wider angle, but in vertical could give you a better depth of field.

I dont care what its for, but Apple really needs to centralize the camera. If it has a bump, a lopside phone is a terrible idea.

Sometimes I want to set the phone down and the odd wobble annoying.

Both Apple and Samsung should not advertise the wallpaper taking up the whole screen, until it does.

Other than the camera, it looks pretty good. The S8 right now still looks better.

It makes sense for horizontal photographs and videography, you know, the way you're supposed to shoot.

Not sure about that vertical dual camera. Still like to see more leaks closer to release.

I think it looks awesome. If this is indeed legit, then this may be the catalyst for me switching from Android to iPhone. But if the next Google Pixel is anything like this, then I'll stay with Android though. So the ball is in your hands Google.

Not bad looking at all, I'd like to see the back though. I hope Apple doesn't do that ugly vertical camera setup, and stays conventional. 5 more months, and the rumors won't matter.
