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

It seems that there might be about 4mm bezel all around the 5.8" panel of the soapy-shaped iPhone 8, 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...

To bad all the subsidies went away. I'm not one for making installment payments on a phone. Looks like I will do 3 years on current device. Does what I need it to anyways. Maybe if Note 8 drops in price after 6 months may look at it. But not sure where the price will land on that either.

I think it looks pretty nice, but perhaps not 1100 dollars nice. Phone prices are getting silly.

Nice! I really dig the design. But still.. it's like a IPhone 8S beta build without the embedded fingerprint scanner.

No iphone has big screen no iphone has small bezel. Yeah good design, but people buy iphone because it's iphone, whatever how the actual product is.

Its a good design not as aggressive as the prior renders and IMO looks like an S8 mini with no curves. Again that's my opinion. Its still a good design. However if that is the price, then for me, its not justifiable - but I guess we will have to wait and see when announced.

No matter what whether iphone 8 or note 8.....no phone justifies the price tag of more than 1000$. it is just a phone after all. It doesn't take me to mars!!!

That is a really good looking device. As someone who's really grown to love the second screen of my V20, this intrigues me.

1200$ for a phone?!? Are they insane? Who can pay that s**t. A decent smartphone no matter what brand shouldn't cost more than 550 or 600$

I don't know about "phone of the year" but naturally it will be a success it is an apple, put that half eaten fruit logo on the back of a polished turd and it will sell out.
