Alleged iPhone 8 case renders show off vertical camera setup, no home button


Leaks of the upcoming iPhone 8 are becoming something of an everyday occurrence now, and from what we've seen so far, Apple seems to have already settled on a design: a 5.2-inch device with no physical front button and a vertical dual-camera setup on the back. And like it or not, a couple of new alleged renders of the device shows exactly that, but this time with protective cases wrapped around its frame.

The images, if based on the real thing, show the iPhone 8 in a number of angles, revealing a design very much in line with what we've seen from Apple in the past. The left side of the device houses the volume buttons and the mute switch, while the right one is home to the power button. The bottom, just like on the iPhone 7, features a speaker/microphone grille with a Lightning port in the middle and no 3.5 mm audio jack.

But moving beyond the boring stuff, the renders of the front of the device suggest that the rumors of no physical home button being present are true. But it's worth pointing out that there are no visible cameras as well, and since all images depict the iPhone 8 with a case of some type, it's pretty much guaranteed their source is a case manufacturer, who may not have accurate information about the final design, and/or may not feel it necessary to include such details in what is probably a prototype render anyway.

However, if you're one of the people who don't like the previously rumored vertical camera setup on the back, we have some bad news for you: this part of the design has been consistent among all leaks for the past month or so, this one included. Just as with other case leaks, the rear-mounted Touch ID sensor isn't present here, though no one is yet entirely sure whether fingerprint unlocking will be removed entirely, or if it will simply be integrated into the bottom of the display.

As for this leak, we'd normally advise against blindly trusting it, seeing as it seems to have been sourced from a case manufacturer (who often base their early designs on rumors), but we've also seen the same-looking iPhone 8 in a number of other leaks as well. But considering the official reveal isn't supposed to happen until September (unless it actually isn't?), we have some time until we find out how accurate this information really is.

Plus the power button is Hugh. Maybe Apple is doing what Sony has been doing with their finger print scanners. Placing it on the power button.

That's what I said before, but that Bankz dude got all worked up because I didn't agree with the rumours he was spreading like they're facts. There is a reason why in all the leaked pictures we see a long power button, because it's clear that Apple are going with Sony's approach regarding the fingerprint scanner placement

I'm beginning to see reasons with you. Its just that my guts tell me that apple will eventually look for a way to put the fps under the display. Well if those rumors dont come to pass (which i think will) then i'll just settle for the V30 (assuming it looks like the evan blass leak) or the note 8 for the next 2 years.

They might copy Sony by putting the FP scanner in the power button & put a capacitive home button on the front like the S8

Being a die hard android user , i quite like the design and would love to make the switch after so long. My last ios device was the iPhone 4.

All the leaks haven't stacked up to a 1k phone yet..

As hard as it is for me, i'll have to agree that this is true. The leaks of the phone have been very uninspiring and untasteful. Anyway, the ip8 will ofcourse look far better than this (as always) but i can't help but think that the leaks haven't shown me a phone that looks like it costs $1k.

I definitely want to get it only if it warrants the asking price... If not I'll stick with my 7+ and Note 8 combo for the fall...

Don't you feel both large devices would be cumbersome to carry? i had a similar thought of getting the 7+ along with my s8 plus , but am on the fence due to both phones being quite large

I don't carry them at the same time if that's what you're saying... But I find the S8+ to be easier to handle because of the screen ratio. I hope all smartphone oem's go to the 2:1 orientation.

I seriously doubt Apple will start charging anywhere close to 1k. I think it will be something around 750 ~ 800 USD. As for the design, it won't be too different from what we've seen so far, but somewhat sleeker.

Why not? They already charge north of $900+ for the 7+ as it were then factor in the cost of the new display (oled), design, new ff camera components (3d sensing/facial recognition), wireless charging chip, fps under display, a11 soc, a more costly 3d touch module, larger battery, AR components for dual rear camera, dual speakers and R&D and you have a 1k device easy. This is only assuming that they include all of this ofcourse.

I dunno. I think it's too risky (even to Apple) to set a base value anywhere close to 1k.

18. Lumia_Luigi

$900 for 128GB & 1K for 256

Again one shell maker is too early on the move and most likely there is mistakes in that shell and it does not fit completely with iPhone8

I bet it wont have bezelless design, a bit better than the iphone 7 minus home button.

Just curious what the actual screen size will be? I keep hearing 5.1 and some times a 5.8?

My last iPhone was the 5S, if rumors prove to be true, I will toss Android in the trash and give this a try.

So far after 1 month usage of s8+, this shape looks kinda fat to me.. Oh my getting used to the tall and sleekness of s8+!
