Alleged Apple iPhone 8 schematic shows vertical dual camera setup on back (Update)

Alleged Apple iPhone 8 schematic shows vertical dual camera setup on back (Update)
UPDATE: Apparently, the Chinese text layered over the image clarifies that it is a fictional drawing of what the next iPhone could be. 

Better grab the ol' salt shaker because you are going to need a grain of the stuff to take this story with. According to tipster SlashLeaks, the schematic drawing that accompanies this story is allegedly showing us the 10th anniversary iPhone known as the Apple iPhone 8. As expected, Touch ID has vanished, and the fingerprint scanner is embedded in the glass as part of the .6-inch area of the screen that will replace the home button with virtual controls.

In addition, KGI Securities Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the iPhone 8 will come with a revolutionary front-facing camera that features a 3D sensor. The camera will also be involved in facial recognition, which will allow users to unlock their iPhone 8 and verify their identity using the unique capabilities of this new snapper. Speaking of cameras, a view from the side shows a very small protrusion of the rear camera. And the dual-camera module on the back of the iPhone 8 is placed in a vertical position, unlike the horizontal installation of the dual-camera module found on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

On bottom, the Lightning port is flanked on each sides by a speaker. The volume rocker is on the left with the power button on the right. The screen is rumored to be edge-to-edge, covering nearly the entire front of the phone, which is something that can't really be determined by this sketch.

Ironically, this schematic does match a crudely drawn image of the iPhone 8 made by a factory worker, right down to the vertically placed dual camera module on the back. So perhaps we shouldn't be too quick to dismiss this leak.
