Latest Apple iPhone 8 dummy created to show a "live" look

Latest Apple iPhone 8 dummy created to show a
The most recent news about the 10th anniversary Apple iPhone that has been dubbed the iPhone 8, are the images and videos showing so-called "dummy models." These aren't the dummy units that you might find at Best Buy. These are creations put together from leaked schematics and other rumored information. Benjamin Geskin, who has created a number of iPhone 8 renders that have captured the attention of many an iPhone fan, has created a dummy model showing what he believes the device will look like when it is turned on.

To create this look, Geskin posts on his Twitter account (@VenyaGeskin1) that he took one of the aforementioned dummy units created from schematics said to have come from an insider who works at Foxconn. Using a printed photo and a leaked iPhone 8 screen protector, he created what might be the closest thing at the moment to holding a working iPhone 8 in your hands.

This iPhone 8 dummy shows off the edge-to-edge screen marred only by the black sensor bar that iPhone fans hope is just a bad dream (or a bad guess). Since we can't see if there is a button on back, this dummy unit really doesn't tell us where Touch ID will lie. Option "A" for Apple would be to embed it under the front screen. Option "B" would be to place a Touch ID button on the back of the phone, far enough away from the dual cameras as to keep wandering fingers from smearing the glass on the camera lenses. Option "C" would be to eliminate Touch ID completely and use a face recognition system that could do everything Touch ID does. Another possibility recently discussed would be to place the entire fingerprint sensor technology under the front screen, and allow it to continuously verify the user's identity.

As we get closer to the expected September unveiling of the 2017 iPhone models, we seem to get a little more sophistication with the leaks. The unveiling of the iPhone 8 is arguably one of the most important in the history of the device. Keep checking in for the latest.

Why can't you just stop this BS and just let it get revealed? You're over saturating leaks.... no one cares.

In fairness, you read the title, you clicked on it. You even took it a further by typing a comment. Perhaps they will stop once you do.

This isn't a leak. This is someone mocking up a dummy based on past leaks.

And you are part of the reason the best apps still come out for iPhone way ahead of android and better quality.

Actually, you're part of the holdouts who cling desperately to that belief.

I rarely use it, and only to receive snaps from a friend. Never had a single issue, though.

All that real estate, and no split view, slide over, or picture in picture would be disastrous to me.

I'm sure it would break Apple's heart if you don't buy the new iPhone.

Actually, it wouldn't. You see the difference between you and I is, I know I'm a nameless, faceless number to Apple. Your blind, fanboy ass, actually think you matter to them. They won't be at you funeral, and won't be sending you a check for riding their jock dude. You're kissing ass for nothing lol. Typed from my Billy bad ass S8 Plus.

"Billy bad ass S8 Plus." Yep, you showed me alright! You're a sad joke of a man. I feel sorry for your family.

My son is in college, living on his own, and fit as a horse. My wife is kept smiling, also fit as a horse, and always happy. Don't feel sorry for them, you don't even know them lol. That was simply a weak ass comeback attempt, cause your bi**h azz got checked. Now feel sorry for that.

Oh dear yes, I got "checked" by darkkjedi AKA vettemanvettiois or whatever your lame YouTube channel name is. You don't talk about that channel too much since you got slapped in the mouth by another member here and had to make private all your videos because even you are embarrassed of them. You are weak and pathetic and you desperately crave validation.

SMDH, you're not even worth it, you're just a sad, pathetic joke of a person, spending every waking moment trolling for attention. So sorry kid, but I've better things to do.

It's really sad how you still reply after getting owned hard.
