Apple iPhone 8 dimensions leak along with new renders
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.
