Purported iPhone 8 dummy unit pictured with vertical dual cameras and under-screen fingerprint scanner
Designer and occasional leaker Benjamin Geskin claims to have obtained a dummy – more precisely, a CNC-machined model – of the upcoming iPhone 8. However, it's difficult to discern which photos depict a physical unit, and which are a very good modeling job.

We are only certain about the pic showing the iPhone's display, because Geskin 'shopped it over a purported photo of the dummy unit. Do note that the screen he envisions covers the entire front, although there's an overlay depicting the bottom bezel typical of all iPhones up to now.

Although the phone appears rather thick, Geskin claims it measures the same as the iPhone 7 in thickness and size. There's also a Lighting port, and the fingerprint scanner is supposedly built into the display. Geskin also mentioned 4mm bezels, dual front & dual rear cameras, and 2.5D curved glass on the back and front panels. Many of these specs have been listed before.

Despite the leak's questionable nature, most of it could come close to what we'll be seeing in September. But with the variety of schematics and whatnot floating on the web, showing iPhones with fingerprint scanners on the back and different variations of the "edgeless" screen concept, we'd hesitate to bet on anything right now. So treat this one as another wild card.

Yuck this is the the ugliest looking iphone i have ever seen no matter what features or changes it offers we all know looks also do matter to satisfy us as we are paying a premium money for a premium device. Looks like it's time to change or look for some other smartphones!

I bought a 128 douchebag. I be at said the iPhone was ugly. I did say I like how the smaller model looks VS the Plus. But I've been using a 5"+ phone to long to go back.

Oh and compare to the S6's, the S7' and the S8's, the iPhone is "ugly. But VS other phones it's not do bad.

U should learn to read VS a douchebag troll.

I just jealous because I own both and you can't with your broke add.

This year alone I will have bought $3000+ with of phones and they will only cost me 1/2.

What's you gonna own...douchebag?

Most Apple users have not said iPhone 6 was ugly, you are referring to Apple haters (which are able to day that Aphrodite is ugly, if she would be related to Apple) when you say "people".

Not getting annoyed by capital letters doesn't mean he likes them. Just nothing worth having a temper tantrum over...

the fingerprint scanner will not be underneath the screen,its "too expensive" for Apple to use the tech and they are known for using old tech to cut cost.

We are not talking about Samsung buddy! The company that made plastic phones up until 2014. The company that decided not to do dual cameras and put the FPS on the back instead of behind the screen.......

Samsung phones cost more to make than apple flagships and yet they sell for less than apple flagships.

I don't know why they haven't used dual cameras but sure single camera beats iphone 7 plus camera. They couldn't place FPS behind the screen because of technology limitations, not due to cost

The S8 cost more than the IP7 due to the fact that the iPhone 7 is 7 months old. As for the FPS behind the display, they couldn't figure out how to do it that's why. from a innovative standpoint, the S8 has nothing! The simply took the S7/note 7 and stretched the screen. Innovation is putting the dual front cameras and the FPS behind the screen. The advance 3D capabilities are as wel. You better hope the ip8 doesn't have distant charging. Don't write it off. Remember Touch ID was pretty much written off for the ip5s? You saw what happened right?

All the last 3 iPhone costs $×30 or less ro.make from day one. Has nothing to do with how old the phone is.

It has to.do.with all the parts being old except the FLU and YOU.

Lol, some people sure have short term memory. Ever since the iPhone was unveiled, they've never made significant hardware changes over last years model. But alas, stay delusional iSheep.
