New iPhone 8 renders may provide an accurate look at the handset

New iPhone 8 renders may provide an accurate look at the handset
There's no shortage of iPhone 8 renders out there, but it's hard to tell if any of them provide a truthful look at the real handset (which should be unveiled by Apple later this year). Today, however, we can inspect a new series of renders that may give us the best look at the iPhone 8 thus far.

The renders are based on factory CAD images, and come from GearIndia and @OnLeaks. Up to this point, @OnLeaks unveiled many renders of unannounced handsets that turned out to be accurate, so it's obviously possible that these new iPhone 8 renders are accurate, too. 

At the same time, we have to mention that Apple reportedly experimented with multiple iPhone 8 prototypes, and the final version of the smartphone could look different than the device seen below.

The iPhone 8 allegedly measures around 143.5 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm, and manages to squeeze in a 5.8-inch OLED display in this rather small body - thanks to the fact that there's almost no bezel around the screen (and no physical home button on the front, or anywhere else on the device). On the back, the iPhone 8 seemingly has a vertical dual camera, and there may be a good reason for that.

All in all, if this is what the iPhone 8 will really look like, the design would be more or less in line with what current rumors are saying about the handset.

Mind you, Apple is expected to release a total of three new smartphones this year. Alongside the iPhone 8, we should also see an iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus - these will likely look a lot like the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models.

One analyst believes that Apple could showcase the iPhone 8 as soon as June (at WWDC 2017). However, there's a higher probability that the device will be unveiled in September, when Apple traditionally announces new phones. In any case, we certainly have to wait and see if these new renders resemble the real iPhone 8.

Not bad. Still think the vertical camera setup kooks stupid, but hey... I use a case.

I think it looks pretty stupid also, but maybe because we aren't used to seeing that, let alone dual cameras. But hey, if it means better landscape videos, then by all means go ahead. Either way, I miss the iPhone 5's flush lens. Will always be in my heart lol

Don't be fooled. They're only rotating the camera so that people will see your phone and know it's not a 7plus or God forbid ...a 6Plus. The phone looks the same to the average person while it's in a case, but for some strange reason people like to show off that they have the latest apple tech ...and apple knows and capitalizes on that.

It would look fine if the camera bump wasn't so big If only they made it flush and put a bigger battery Its gonna be so annoying to use flat on a table

Dude, you write as if this is official. Even if it is, it's going to be no more more annoying than the currnrt iPhone with a camera hump.

There's too much smoke, its probably true especially given onleak's track record It will be worse than the current iPhone cause its lower Just use your finger if you can't visualize it

Who uses a phone while it's laying on a table? Picking it up a couple inches can't seriously be that difficult

There are still people who use their phones on a table!

Students, office workers, people who use desks, people who eat at tables, ... Its the reason Samsung, Apple, Google, Qualcomm, etc are trying to get the fingerprint reader under the display

It's a weird change but there's likely a good reason, as you suggested. As long as there are good stereo speakers, water proof, good camera, and OLED, it'll sell like crack cocaine.

I think it looks stupid too but thats probably because we arent used to it. I imagine we'd be saying thesame if vertical cameras were the norm. Its about perception most times. Nevertheless i think it looks damn ugly tbh, at least on these renders even though the final product will definitely look better.

Were you trying to troll or make a joke? You might want to give that another go.

i think it looks like my gs8 but without the stupid fps but they think that horrible massive camera hump will be ok somehow, but i really think the fps will be in the mid back of it

I have actually grown to love the vertical dual camera look. Holding my 7 Plus up next to the screen, I'll even go as far as to say that I prefer the vertical camera. What I'm not fond of is the hump...it's alright looking on my 7 Plus, but the hump in these iPhone 8 renders actually looks terrible. (Mainly because the flash is now part of the hump, so it's more elongated and actually looks like a thicker hump)

My toughts exactly. It looks like a thicker hump tbh. I just hope the final product looks better (they always do anyway).

curved edges.....Wish the phone can be protected be the cases.

It's a 2.5D curve. It's not like Samsung's curved glass. It looks eased because the side bezel is thinner than in the IPhone, so the glass appears to sit higher up. Overall it looks cool. But let's see if this happens, we will see if PA drags the concept of dual glass in the wringer like they do Samsung and let's see if they me tion it being a fingerprint magnet too. That's the one thing I hate especially about so much glass. Fingerprints really ruin the look.

Me: (looking at photos while scrolling) "wow, sleek, clean design, solid...," (sees the rear camera design) "DaFQ is dis?"
