New iPhone 8 dummy unit video reportedly provides the "closest look" at Apple's first 5.8-inch handset

New iPhone 8 dummy unit video reportedly provides the
Last week, we talked about a couple of photos showing an iPhone 8 dummy unit that might look like the real iPhone 8 that Apple is getting ready to announce sometime later this year. Today, the same iPhone 8 dummy unit showed up in a hands-on video that lets us better envision what Apple's next big thing could be all about.

Revealed by @OnLeaks (one of the web's most reliable sources when it comes to leaks and unofficial information) in collaboration with Tiger Mobiles, this iPhone 8 dummy reportedly provides "the closest look yet" at Apple's upcoming handset.

As you can see for yourself in the video embedded below, there's nothing surprising about this iPhone 8 dummy unit - everything about it is based on previous rumors. Compared to any other iPhone model released until now, the alleged iPhone 8 has very thin bezels around its display, though we obviously can't call it a bezel-less handset.

Towards the end of the video, the iPhone 8 dummy unit is accurately measured, and it turns out it's 143.5 mm tall, 71 mm wide, and 7.5 mm thin (if you don't measure the rear camera bump, of course). This means the device is larger than the iPhone 7 (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm), but significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus (158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm).

It's said that the iPhone 8 sports a 5.8-inch display, and, since it doesn't have a physical home button, its fingerprint scanner could be embedded into the screen (though Apple may also have a plan B that would see the sensor included on the phone's rear panel).

All in all, it looks like the iPhone 8 will be the herald of a new design dawn for Apple - one without the thick bezels that its smartphones have always had. We're definitely looking forward to seeing this handset being officially unveiled later this year. What about you?

Yup. iPhone 7 Plus is currently the best phone on the planet, with best performance and battery life combo. Can't wait for iPhone 8. The king is soon arriving!

You're stupid blind fanboy. Most of your listed functionalities for iPhone 8, Android fans had since 4-5 years or more. Wireless charging, water resistance, stereo spekers, OLED displays - so funny how you and other bunch of stupid fanboys defend LCD in the past, right? Remember? And i hope at least next gen iPhones to record video with stereo sound, cause till now - IT IS STILL MONO!!! In 21 century!!! Ohh. For the storage of 256GB - do you ever heard about SD Card slot?

Doesn't look worth 1k... I still don't have a reason to give up my 7+...Yet.

No phone is worth 1k to me as well, but with prices steadily increasing, we'll be bound to go well over one grand for a flagship phone next year or so... Bot to mention inflation in currency conversion.

I agree, no phone is worth it. But if the Note ends uo costing $1000 next year, i probably wont be buying it until a year later. But foe sure, foe $1000, a S or Note wipl still do more than any phone. The Note 8...if Sammie pulls of a 4K display, i want that, for native Tv support, when i so Powerpoint Presenations from DEX.

I was talking to a colleague about this yesterday. £1k for a phone is a massive price wall. I have the same issue with the Surface Pro. I bought an i5 Pro2+ keyboard, under £1000. Pro 4 with keyboard, under £1000. I don't think you can get away with 4gb ram now but the 8gb version is £1250. Even the 4gb one is nearly a grand so with a keyboard and pen you're well over the £1000 mark. It's not going to happen and I'm a big fan of the Surface. Sorry for going off at a tangent but the point is that going to 4 figures for a phone will be hard for anyone to justify. It's easier to finance a phone because you're used to paying £50 a month but the phone pricing is becoming more transparent nowadays and you can see how much you're paying towards the device. Looks like the Note 8 and the iPhone 8 will be trying to push that limit. Be interesting to see how successful they are with them.

So, 3d sensing, AR, underscreen fps, stereo speakers, 3d touch, 256gig storage, water resistance, fast charging, dual ff cameras, OLED display, bezeless design, touchbar, A11 fusion processor, state of the art taptic engine, wireless charging, dual rear cameras (with telephoto lens and portrait mode) aren't enough to spend 1k on? If that isn't, i wonder what phone is really, even by next years standard. I just wonder.

We have all that, but VR in place of AR, and desktop capabilities, alsready has 256GB÷ of stirage, the canera that takes the best pictures, has the fastest autofocus, wireless cgarging, fast charging and fast wireless charging, BT5.0 to more than one speaker, touchbar functions already, where right now in ny browser I can use the touchbar to scroll left and right on webpages, face recognition, iris scanners, UFS 2.1, USB Type C, QHD÷ and so much more and it disnt cost me $1000. The iPhone (whetevwr its gonna be called) looks nice. But catching up to an S6, isnt worth $1000. I have the vast majority of what you mention for only $850. But you all will claim thw S or Note is worth what it cost, yet it does morw than even your upcoming new phone, but you rhink its worth it? Wow were born with a very severe case of be hypocritical.

You just dont get it do you. How many phones on the market have the features of the Galaxy S or Note? None of them. Guess what? None of those Andeoids cost as much ad the S and Note either. Come on dude, how old are you? You really think im stupid enough to fall foe your BS? It doesnt matter to me that no phone will have everything the iPhone has. What i did say is i have a phone that has all that right now, for less than $1000. You, especially you claimed the S8 wasnt qorth its cist claiming it just an S7 with a bigger display. You claim the Note is just an S with a pen and not worth $950 ig rhe Note 8 ends up being that. But yet the iPhone will onky be catcjing up to most of the stiff we already had since the S6. Think of it bro. Th3 S6, S7, S8 and Note 5 and 7 all had something on your list. AM RIGHT?. WHICH ONE OF THEM COSTED $1000? But you are saying an iPhone thise is worth it, but you vlaimed2the Note and S are not worth what they cost? That is your claim and you said it many times. Please explain how in your own words, how you claim the S and Note is not worth $850, but the IPhone 8 catching up to that is worth even nore money? Dont try to dodge the question. Because you didnt even take me up on my bet, because you know you were gonna lose. Because the fact is thw S and Note are way morw phone for what they cost vs rhw iPhone and all of them are overpriced. But at least for my $800, im getting lots of new tech first. Yourw waiting 3 years to get what i had 3 years already and for you to own it once, you gonna pay more then i did and because its Apple you're ok with it. Dude you are hopelessly hypocritical.

Dude, we're talking next generation tech here. Yes, the 6 devices put together all had one or two features (max) from that list but its a whole different beast when one phone has all those hardware features put together, features that next years phones will most probably not have. You do realize that we're talking bout the s6, 7, 8, and note 5, 7, 8 put together right? The iphone 8 is playing in a different league right now.

You don't have a phone that "has all of that right now". Your phone doesn't have 3d Touch, 256gig of NATIVE storage, 3d sensing, under screen fps, dual rear or ff cameras (note 8 is suppose to be first samsung phone with dual rear cameras), AR, a motion co-processor. So yeah you are a liar when you say you currently have a phone that has all of that stuff right now. But most ppl know that TechieXP1969 is a blatant lair on here.

You're paying for design. It is by far the best looking phone to date. The screen ratio is amazing. It doesn't matter if your phone has this or that. Gucci uses cotton just like many other lower end brands, but people will still buy Gucci.

Where on the s8 is there a touch bar? Doing a google search about it yields nothing about a touch bar. Or are you simply making stuff up per your usual ways.

Majority of those features you listed are the same ones you used to call gimmicky and useless when Samsung introduced them on their flagships, quite ironic how they have become features that you can brag about now. And calm down budd, majority of those features aren't ready for the iPhone 8 just yet. I remember someone fooling you on PA and listed those specs and how they'll come with the iPhone 8 and you should trust him because he's an Apple insider, since then, I have seen you post the same rumours almost daily lol

Lol, i don't need no apple insider. I have my sources. Nobody said anything to me when everything i listed are already present in the ip7+ and the rest pretty much confirmed. I want u to show me proof of what u just said (of someone giving me a list of the ip8 features) if what you're saying is right. What i do remember ironically, is a guy telling me about some juicy note 8 features (all wrong btw) which i admittedly believed because i have no sources, his name is brasstax and as u can see, the note 8 will actually be the one to underwhelm. So get your facts right and stop spreading Bullsh*t. Do u really need to make up lies? I' so disappointed. *still waiting for your proof of that ip8 conversation btw*

The same thing can be said for Samsung fan boys too.. 1. While Sony had IP -67/68 , samsung fans told, who will be going to carry the phone for bath. But once samsung introduce it, all of a sudden it became must have feature. 2.Nokia had glance screen Since long back. But once samsung introduce the "Always On display". This guys says like its their invention. 3. Samsung fans said removable battery is must have feature while they had. But once they gave up, all of a sudden, this feature is not a must have for them. 4. The same for Exclusion of Memory card slot in S6. Earlier they barked at apple camp for not having micro Sd expansion. While S6 Era, they stopped barking, and S7 on wards, again they started barking. 5. They same will be repeated for 4K screen also. While sony introduce 4K screen in mobile, its gimmick for Sammy fans. But while they introduce in Next Note (Rumours says) they will praise like this is the invention. I am not Talking about you Maherk. You are a genuine person who appreciates/ criticise all the OEM. This post is for all the fan boys. Samsung fans are equally bad as apple fans
