Mockup of Apple iPhone 8 shows us what the anniversary edition might look like

Mockup of Apple iPhone 8 shows us what the anniversary edition might look like
The Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus will apparently look very much like the current iPhone models when they are introduced in September. The 10th anniversary edition iPhone, dubbed the Apple iPhone 8, is another matter altogether. A mock up of the iPhone 8 has surfaced that supposedly is a dead ringer for the real thing. It is based on recent rumors and leaks about what will be the first iPhone to feature an OLED screen.     

The double-camera setup on the back panel is vertically positioned, and there are 2.5D glass panels employed on both the front and back of the device. Once again, the 3.5mm earphone jack is conspicuous by its absence. Also absent is the rear Touch ID button that has appeared on some renders and CAD images of the unit. Because the iPhone 8 will sport an edge-to-edge display, there is no longer any place in front to put a home button/fingerprint scanner.

Plan "A" calls for the home button/fingerprint scanner to be embedded under the front screen in a small .55 to .65-inch area of the display. But the technology might not be ironed out in time, forcing Apple to resort to its back up plan which calls for a button on the back of the device. Samsung also tried to embed the fingerprint scanner on the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ under the front screen. But Samsung ended up having to place the button on the back of the device, next to the camera.

While the mockup of the iPhone 8 doesn't show a rear Touch ID button, it also doesn't mean that it won't be placed there when the phone is being mass produced. Speaking of production, securities firm Morgan Stanley says that the Apple iPhone 8 will ship on time. This contradicts other reports that blame hardware issues for possible delays in the launch of the iPhone 8 to as late as November.

It is but that is a mock up and the actual device will most likely look pretty stunning just like S8 and G6.

Apple can do better and I believe they will. If they don't well my next phone will be the Pixel 2.

Looks like an oval shaped iPhone 7. Apple can do better than this. Can they not hire people with have better phone ideas? Even though the S8 doesn't cost $1000, it looks like it could. This thing looks cheaper than some cheap Android Apple's not worried though, the "sheeple" will buy it anyways. Just trying to understand, with the device only going to have the features the S7 already has, how that justifies $250 price increase. INSANE! Doesn't look like something a 10th Anniversary product would look like.

maybe wait until it's announced, what if they are hiding something that might justify it. who knows? why just jump to conclusions WAY too early.

What exactly did I jump to a conclusion about? I didn't make any conclusions. I think that fake phone is ugly. I'm saying it's fake, because its a "dummy" and not an actual phone. But if the final design looks like this, and I can say with 90% certainty it will, ITS UGLY. We were 5 months from launch when the iPhone 6 leaks were revealed. And everyone said, Apple would to make a phone that ugly. They did and you all bought it anyways. So even if someone calls it ugly, why does it matter? If you don't think it is, buy it. Still isn't gonna change my opinion. It's ugly. Has the money to do better. If Ivy or whoever came up with this, can't do better then they need to hire someone else. I'm not saying the iPhone needs to look anything like the Galaxy S6/7/8. I am saying they could do better than just taking the already ugly boring iPhone 6 design and just rotating the camera. To me this is Apple being lazy. With iPhone sales already slipping, if this is the best they can do for 10 years of selling this one product, then they deserve what happens next...which will be even lower sales.

im not talking about ugliness, looks are subjective either way, i couldn't care less for the looks. you mentioned yourself that you don't think that apple could justify the price increase with the lack of features, while the announcement is months away and whatever might happen. we're judging a phone out of some leaks, we don't know the whole picture. please don't write essays next time

If you actually think this looks better than the S8, with your Samsung hating @$$; then you are a lost cause. Looks are 100% subjective, and I'm all for everyone having an opinion, and I don't have to agree with it. There is a difference in a justified opinion, and an absolute lie. Unless you are 100% blind, have zero common sense, and you liek damnit the hell I'll bite you, there is no way anyone can claim this phone looks better than the S8. This thong doesn't even look better than the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7'sin that Jet "shiny" black, actually looks really cool. The above is ugly.

I won't call it ugly straight away but looks very similar to iphone 3g/3gs. I hate the protruding camera btw. That being said, it looks like a design back from 2008.

I hope not, but then again, I'll just keep my 7 Plus. That looks hella ugly.

The original iPhone only sold 7M, even though this model here will likely beat that, it "looks" like it shouldn't
