Apple iPhone 8 dimensions leak along with new renders

Apple iPhone 8 dimensions leak along with new renders
According to the latest leak about the tenth-anniversary edition Apple iPhone, the model dubbed the Apple iPhone 8 will feature dimensions of 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm. To put these numbers in perspective, the Apple iPhone 7 measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. That means that the iPhone 8 will be bigger all around than the iPhone 7. Compared to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, which weighs in at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm, the iPhone 8 is smaller. This is true even if the latter carries a larger screen. The edge-to-edge near bezel-less look of the tenth- anniversary edition makes this possible.

Benjamin Geskin, who has produced several iPhone renders this year, has created some interesting images for everyone to peruse. The first shows the Apple iPhone 8 sandwiched in between the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Again, what is interesting is how the screen of the iPhone 8 is larger than the one on the iPhone 7 Plus even though the actual phone is smaller. The second image he created shows the Apple iPhone 8 in between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Unfortunately, we might not know about the placement of Touch ID until we get closer to September. As we've discussed before, Apple apparently has two plans for dealing with its fingerprint scanner/home button. Plan "A" calls for it to be embedded under .55 to .65 inches of the rumored 5.8-inch touch screen. If this cannot be worked out in time, Plan "B" has a physical Touch ID button located on the back of the phone. While a recently leaked iPhone 8 case revealed a circular cutout in the back that seemed to be made for a rear-facing Touch ID button, those in the know say that the cutout is for the Apple logo.

Check out the new renders by clicking on the slideshow below.

Nope Its Plan "C" Touch ID on the power button

Plan A: under display Plan B: cut hole in OLED Plan C: power button. I don't think we'll see Apple even consider plan Touch ID on the back. I hope.

So the flat 5.8" iphone 8 will both be thinner and shorter than the gs8? Thats crazy dope.

38. BuffaloSouce unregistered

Will it be thin enough to fold in half line the iPhone 6

It'll likely have to be about 7.5 mm thick.

Wow this looks stunning!!! Haters gonna hate no matter what. Anyway it's great that they didn't chose the stupid edge display path. And the full blown frontal screen is sick AF. Sammy fans will have a hard time swallowing this....lolzzzzzzzzz

If they don't do something like Samsung crop to view that would be a fail. Having more screen that's not useful to watch video.

Lol that's not coming out u il next year but even if it was this year, did you see the side by side, the GS8 looks like ssssoooooooo much better. Lol

65. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Sorry but the cut-out at the top is butt-ugly. Not a Sammy fan, but based on the front of the phone, I think the S8 looks better, just because of that ugly cutout which makes the iPhone 8 unbearable to look at.

Yet Samsung is producing the Amoled display. Will it be over saturated and have burn in issues as may Apple enthusiasts always level against galaxy devices? Or will it be called the perfect display?

I predict the iDiot excuse will become "Apple invented the display, Samsung just manufactured it". Whereas they're using the same Samsung OLED technology, just with a different dimension...

But it's wider, which makes it uncomfortable while holding it with one hand....

76. Nopers unregistered

Lol. Since when was that width uncomfortable? It's less wide than the LG G6.

The fingerprint scanner will be imbedded under the screen, guaranteed.

The race to put the fps underneath the display is on.. Who will be the first to nail it? Will it be Apple? lg? or samsung? Guys, your time starts now.

samsung might do it first since the note 8 comes before the iphone 8/x

21. trojan_horse

Or the LG V30 might do it first.

Lol, thats true too. Although i have a feeling that samsung will be saving it for the s9 as theres nothing new/exciting around the corner. Moreso as the gs8 (which the note is based on) is already attractive as it is. I think the note 8 will market the dual cameras as the big feature imo. My 2 cents anyway.

The note series gets new tech/features first. THEN the s series. Not the other way around.

37. Bankz

The s5 got fps first, the s6 got glass bodies first, the s8 had the infinity screen first, the s8 removed the home button first, the s6 had a sealed in battery first, the s4 had an ir blaster first, the s4 had 1080p first, the s5 probably had wireless charging first also. The only thing the note got before the s series was a qhd screen and 4k video recording.

The IR blaster, FPS, and screen resolution werent new tech. Samsung was playing catchup to others with those. The note got more ram, faster clocked processor, edge screen, image stabilization, iris scanner, qhd, and 4k recording before the s series. You might be the only one on the internet that thinks sealed batteries are a "feature/new tech"...

The idea that the Note series is the true flagship is a lie. The majority of the game changing features have debuted in the S series. The Note 4 is the biggest change out of all the Note series (from their preceding S device). I waited for the Note 7 after the S7 Edge and it was basically the same device.

But the situation is different now because of Note 7 explosions, Samsung most likely will include 1 or 2 game changing features with Note 8 that will differenciate it from S8. That's literally the only way to regain back reputation for their Note series.

They used to each have new features the other didn't. Than Samsung decided the Note is nothing but a large S with the pen added.

Its not about Apple, Lg or Samsung is whether Synaptics that invented the fingerprint under glass can get the production run big enough without flaws.

The elongated power button really has me thinking that Apple will integrate the fingerprint scanner into it. Why else would it be nearly double the length of a regular iPhone power button?

I think the power button is the best location (if it can't be placed under the display) having used a XZ for a while, it is definitely the most practical implementation.

The indentation at the top of the screen, is plain ugly. Apple...copy Samsung, and put a very small top and bottom bezel. The S8/Plus, is beauty personified. Please make me want this new iPhone...right now I don't. The design renders are mehhh at best, and the rumored features, lack the big 4 I want included.
