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.
