'Final' iPhone 8 design leak depicts 4mm bezels, tips $1100 release price


Whenever a popular phone approaches its announcement date, there is a barrage of case makers that advertise their brands by pushing concept images of the handset snug tightly in their own wrappers. In the best-case scenario, such renders are based on leaked factory schematics and tips from industry sources, rather than just rumors and educated guesswork, so sometimes these leaks depict what turns out to be very close to the real deal. The latest in these installments comes courtesy of a luxury case maker that pushed some info about the iPhone 8 already, but now has managed to issue a "final" design, and has some tips to flesh out the handset a bit further than what we already think we know about it. 

First off, it seems that there might be about 4mm bezel all around the 5.8" panel of the soapy-shaped device, in order to keep the user from inadvertent edge presses. The cutout at the top middle of the panel will host the physical sensors and cameras that usually reside at the front, while the rest is an active OLED panel to show battery, network, and other info that's found at the very top segment of our screens. Notifications and switches will likely be moved in the bottom "function" area of the display, along with on-screen buttons of sorts.

A larger power key on the side, stereo speakers, and a Lightning port round up the rest of what's visible in these images, while the source also confirms a dual vertical camera on the back, though they aren't aware of the exact sensor/lens configuration details just yet. The rumored L-shape battery that is supposed to extend the iPhone 8's battery life significantly when compared to the iPhone 7, is apparently also in play indeed. 

Last but not least, these goodies are about to bring along a $1100 to $1200 starting price, perhaps depending on the storage configuration, so tell us what you think about these images, and the accompanying info that has leaked about the iPhone 8 so far - will it be a success story for Apple?
