An Phone 8 and 7s Plus mockups get sized up on video, shiny glass backs and all


An iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 walk into a bar, and the resulting fight is between the legacy Apple design that millions of people are accustomed to and don't want changed much (for example, having a home Touch ID button), and the future of the company's handsets. The iPhone 8 will allegedly prime Apple fans for what's coming down the pipe - edgeless OLED screen handsets with multiple cameras and 3D sensors ready for the AR era - while the 7s and 7s Plus will aim to make the transition smoother. 

That's not to say that the 7s and 7s Plus won't get design upgrades - as you can see from the video above, comparing 7s Plus and iPhone 8 mockups, they will all have new glass backs to aid the alleged wireless charging pass through easier, and have much more understated antenna lines, plus shinier side bands. Overall, however, the star of the show this year will be the iPhone 8, and if you are hesitant about that, just have a looksie at the comparison above. 

We don't know if the software solutions on both phones will also be different - Apple has to somehow accommodate the iPhone 8's screen 'notch' at the top, but, overall, the all-screen handset may have a different iOS 11 overlay, be it only for the alleged virtual buttons users will have to navigate with.

No guarantee it will be copper though. Apple may introduce that new color as bronze. Copper is just the unofficial rumor.

Because there are only few who were interested. Life sucks and unfair. When an iphone gets a new feature then that feature seems like first, they had tons of userbase, and mostly of them do not care what other phones has and simply think as a gimmick which is true.

Apple should fire those employees who leaked newest iPhone information. Thanks to them, iPhone 8 won't let us excited anymore.

The iPhone 8 looks boring to me. The S8 and G6 trumps it.

iPhone 8 will be a killer device, I am an Android user but honestly, I really like it. The Android manufacturers were lazy lately, churning out boring designs, no real improvements (minus maybe LG with the G6 and Samsung with the S8 but really, the S8/Note8 form factor is stupidly tall). The iPhone 8 will really push everyone to get out of their boringness but in the mean time, Apple will take all the money :)

Something tells me you're using the "android user" status to defame us.

Nothing in his comment defames Android users, I believe that is just your insecurity talking here, he shared his opinion on the iPhone 8, nothing in it at all defames Android users lol... The guy is a technology lover and can admit if something is cool/nice/etc, even if it's, GASP, a Apple product. Normal Android users don't mind the iPhone at all and actually many realize the importance of it in the market, I don't get why this site has so many over zealous fanboys on both sides, especially Android fans, it's literally nothing like this on r/Android where there is over 880,000 people in the community there

Smart question. It seems it's all about power and style with apple now a days. With more power must come something for the phone to do.

Right. Fools think I'm trolling, but I really wanna see the iPhone take advantage of the great hardware it has. We know it'll look good, but what will it do?
