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

Posted: , by Daniel P.

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?

Best render so far! Only the price tag is highly unjustified

Agreed. This is certainly a very well designed phone. Pricing is more than high though. I can only hope that Apple will allow picture in picture with the new iPhone.

Looks like Apple have been surpassed by Samsung, and now (if the renders are correct) will be replicating Samsung..

Let the war begin!

iPhone removes headphone jacks, removes fingerprint scanner, copies the 100% proven trend of the breezeless screen and you think they are even in the top 5 of phones of the year? lol

Apple is poop and will be a joy to short, Aint no better money than sheep money.

RIP APPLE

There might be nicer ways of writing it but grammatically speaking his sentence is correct. The only mistakes would be the use of "jacks" rather than the singular and "breezeless" meant as "bezel-less", both of which I can almost guarantee are auto-corrected mistakes.

I just hate how these fanboys declare their favorite phone as if it is THE best for everyone, like what You_Dont_Say did.
He could have just said "the iPhone 8 will be the best phone for me", I would have no problem with that.

Me too. They need to learn the significance of personal opinion and that they can't force their opinion upon others.

Btw, are you facing some sort of glitch on this site due to which the likes on comments are disappearing or not showing properly? It started occuring to me since last week.

Just like the guy who replied to you, that "Flash" guy has serious fanboy problems, he considers his personal opinion as absolute truth, and forces it on people who has a different opinion from him.

Yes I am experiencing it too, comments either have no likes or 1 like, nothing else.

Once again Apple has to keep it's proprietary lightning crap. Instead of going with a much better faster charging, and faster throughput USB-C ​port. Apple has to keep in control of it's lightning port so it can make more money off of third party lightning manufacturers as well. Apple doesn't make any money off of USB-C. Yet Apples laptops all use USB-C ports now, but Apple doesn't even include a dongle or cable to talk to it's own iPhones. You have to layout more money for that. When are people going to wake up and see the greed in this company.

The other thing is the iPhone 7s's are still going to have the low resolution displays​. Other than a newer A11 chip. It's basically a way for Apple to keep charging the same flagship pricing for a 4 year old design.

They can't get away with putting same low resolution panel inside the 8 because it would be even less sharper than the current 326 PPI panel on the smaller 7 due to pentile pixel structure. So I highly doubt the 8 will have anything lower than 1080p

OLED, especially lower res OLED, doesn't have to be penile. Samsung could produce an RGB 5.8" AMOLED at 720p.

However, since the 7s Plus is 1080p, there is no way the 8 will be lower.

Yeah they don't have to use Pentile but the reason why they use Pentile over RGB still at the moment is because Pentile OLED displays last considerably longer than RGB OLED panels do, so they won't be using an RGB layout, which pretty much rules out a 720p OLED iPhone 8. Small i8 will have minimum 1080p and the big 8 1440p possibly, or some weird resolution like 1350p or something

Plus seems like both models are gonna get bigger screens so I think Apple finally drops 720p

Why doesn't the competition create devices that make people switch to the competition? There is nothing wrong with Apple trying to succeed with their proprietary solution. But there is something wrong with the competition letting Apple get away with this. As soon as Apple's sales drop, Apple will change their way doing business.

There's is nothing wrong with the competition. Competition is the only reason we are seeing oled screen on iPhone 8. Otherwise apple would have sold that same design for next 10 years.

But competition cannot change the psyche of people overnight. Apple is responding to the demand of the consumers. If iphone consumers don't care about better screen resolution on iPhone, why would apple give a s**t.

Consumers are getting more conscious due to good products available from other manufacturers. But it will take time.

But this leaked design is absolutely stunning. I hope it is true.
