Check out these concept renders of the Apple iPhone 8

Ok, we just showed you the latest CAD design for the Apple iPhone 8, which suggests that the Touch ID feature will be embedded under the screen. As you might recall, even though the iPhone 8 is believed to carry a 5.8-inch OLED display, as much as .65-inch of the screen will be used for the embedded Touch ID. Just in case the technology is not feasible, Apple is reportedly working on a plan "B," which would have the Touch ID button positioned on the back of the phone.

Today, a series of concept renders has been published, revealing what this so-called function area could supposedly look like, and how it will work. We can see this area being used for anything from notifications, virtual controls, and more.

Remember that the renders found in the slideshow are based on a concept. But they are based on comments from analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an outstanding track record when it comes to forecasting future iPhone models. Thus, these images might have some basis in reality.

I like the overall look and almost full screen and round corners, but that speaker hole bugs the s**t out of me. Also it looks a lot like the SVPER concept phone.

Cant beat the S8 unfortunately.

Who cares, Apple will sell like cupcakes and people will be happy with it. It will be the best Apple has to offer and be better in some areas and perhaps worse in others. In the end people tend to stick to their OS/brand anyway.

OR....these concepts will stay concept and they'll release an iPhone 7 with vertical cameras which iFans will say is perfect and the press will once again call "completely different" than the last 3.

That would be beside the point. He said based off the render, the S8 looks better. The render is all screen. That's what people been wanting for years. The S8 has 9mm bezels at the top and bottom and the camera and sensors are visible. How can anyone but a blind fanboy would say the S8 looks better than the renders. It kind of like when a guy likes a girl and the girl turns him down and then he says he did t like her anyway lol! He's just bu**hurt!! Lol!

Sorry but the renders aren't all screen. There's a bezel all around a few mm's wide. The S8 may have more bezel top and below, this render has more bezel on the sides. This concept below is all screen, not the one in this article.

ee are talking about a forged and chin. This thing is all screen dude. The 4mm around the phone is not all bezel by the way. It's 4mm from the arc of the side to the screen. A little bezel on the side is mandatory. Even the S8 has it on the side. It's just a bit hard to see because of the curve. Even the xoami Mi mix has bezels albeit tiny. Also, it has a huge bezel at the bottom!

Yeah, u have a point there as i was thinking thesame thing myself. The fact that theres a 2.5mm bezel everywhere on the screen makes it more polished, neat, symmetrical and just oozes class. The ip8 is actually all screen as those tiny bezels on the edges are a must. Even the s8 and mi mix has them except they arent symmetrical/with the whole display.

Listen to the hate. The point of the S8 design, was to give the phone the illusion of being completely bezeless. The idea is to have what you have in today's stadiums. To have an unobstructed view. So that bezel don't get in the way of your view. That is why they made the front all black. Because it gives the illusion of being or having invisible bezel. If you don't like then don't like it. But saying the above render looks better is a laugh. First off, why do you have to compare the 2? Apple has their own design language. Comparing the look of the Galaxy to an iPhone is like trying to compare night with day. You can choose which one is which in your own mind. It's ok to have an opinion, but have an opinion where you don't have to bash another phone. This is just an iPhone 7 with maybe no bezel. The S8 looks nothing like the S7 except from the back. Why not critique the iPhone on it's own without even mentioning the S8? Because you can't. I can criticize either without mentioning the other. Taking a boring design and slapping a full display on it, isn't gonna make it pretty. For me the S7 was ugly. Which is why I didn't buy it. I did like the S6 edge much better. Even though they look similar. The iPhone and Galaxy S are evenly matched. They both have pros and cons. The iPhone biggest con is, it should be spec' d like the S for what it costs and it's not. But you're to use nitpicking b.s. that don't even matter. Talking about bezel. The iPhone is finally dropping those big ugly bezels...finally. But they won't even change the phone design, and this it just looks like the same phone 4 times in a row, but with a larger screen. What funny, it's the same thing you all say about the S6 and s7 and S8.

Hahaha 4mm around the screen is, by all means, a bezel. Which means it's still not all screen like you said the render was. No matter how you try to justify it. And huge bezel at the bottom, you have a weird definition of huge. Does it look nice in the end, I think it does. But I think the S8 looks gorgeous too.

You mean kinda like Samsung? Same design, same camera, same ram, same memory and a slightly faster processor and just lengthen the screen.

It's not the same camera. It's a re sensor with th3 same specs. How is you fans say, why change what works? Now you're being a hypocrite against your own words? You sheeple make me sick with your hypocrisy.

What exactly is it about the S8 that would look better? I would take all screen all day. Both backs are all glass. Come on dude!!

Not having a hole in the middle of my screen is a pretty big deal to me. Cant unsee that mess.

The s8 still hasn't beat the 7. I'd like to compare it to the 6s

If they actually put that function area on there then that'll be Crazy dope...

Yeah ocd people aren't gonna like that one bit. Why doesn't anybody ever copy the xperia speaker slits along the frame edge. That would go perfect with any minimal bezel design.

Sorry but that's a dumb concept. Where's the front facing camera, the light sensor, and proximity sensor? But there's a small grill for the speaker? The MI Mix proved you could eliminate the speaker.

something that came to my mind as well. Maybe Apple will surprise us or maybe this is just to ambitious for now

Dude, have you been under a rock. Everyone knows the camera, sensors and Touch ID are under the display. If you don't believe it, Look up the Apple patents. It's hard to deliver when you see real innovation!

Actually no one knows for sure. Keep spreading your filth.

Yes, I've seen the patents... but that's all they are. Just because Apple has a patent doesn't mean it's real.

34. TechieXP1969

Posts: 14967; Member since: Sep 25, 2013 actually are going to ignore the fact PA had an article that stated, the reason the S8 didn't have the under display FPS was because they had issues. also.having issues which is why they have an the active design with a rear mounted FPS. Stop being such a stubborn loser. Having a patent doesn't mean making it possible or is easy...Sherlock dums!
