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.
