New iPhone 8 concept images by Hajek envision Jet Black and Rose Gold side bands

Rendering future phones as image concepts is an ungrateful job, as rumor alterations are pouring in every day, so you have to always adjust and rework. When it comes to depicting all things future Apple, however, there is barely a more prominent graphics artist than one Martin Hajek. His designs are usually top-notch not only in terms of 3D-rendering mastery, but also in conveying the main rumors and leaks about an upcoming phone in the most plausible manner.

Especially adept at visualizing iPhones (artists and their love for all things Apple and Mac, you know), Martin Hajek has this time taken upon himself the heavy task of depicting the iPhone 8 based on the latest design leaks. So far, most renders envision a black or white iPhone 8 concept, as these are said to be the only basic colors for it, but this graphics artist takes it up a notch, and imagines what the iPhone 8 could look like with colored metal bands around it in piano black, rose gold, and other pertinent iPhone colors.

The rumored dual camera in a vertical setup with slightly protruding lens is here, as is the small cutout at the top for the relevant Face ID sensors and front camera. Needless to say, the phones are running iOS 11, as can be deduced by the DND-while-driving feature depicted here. What do you think, could the eventual iPhone 8 look anything like this, or are those steel bands too colorful for yours or Apple's tastes?

I don't think it looks real. The leak on the phone structure and the leak concept art does not add up. However, I could be wrong and the iPhone 8 turn out to be gorgeous which I hope it does. iOS user pays a lot of money for their phone so they do deserve the best Apple can offer them.

I sure hope they DO NOT color that notched area at the top white. It looks horrible IMO.

Looks nice - IMO, the jet black is the best as the cut out on the white model ruins the bezz -less effect. Anyway nice looking device.

I think the iPhone 8 will arrive before the Essential phone. It's taking too long to get released.

How are these graphic artists make money from these envisions lets say... Would apple hire them in the future to design their phones?

Pretty simple things to model really. Just a rectangular block with rounded corners and the odd button. You're not going to make a living drawing them. Probably just a bit of a hobby done in their free time.

For how long will you show these concepts images. Its time for the real ones .

Sadly this is how it will probably look and though these renders will be described as ugly, when the exact same thing is released they'll call it beautiful.

Overall it looks good, but to me that cutout will look terrible in colors other than black.
