New leaks reveal Apple iPhone 8 back and front panels, live renders, and more
by Alan Friedman / Jun 12, 2017, 10:13 PM
One of the images gives us a tasty look at all three 2017 iPhone models, which we can tell apart by the camera each unit is sporting. The Apple iPhone 7s will come with a single lens 12MP camera. The Apple iPhone 7s Plus features a horizontally mounted dual-camera setup, and we've already discussed the rear snapper on the Apple iPhone 8.
The interesting thing about these images is the lack of a Touch ID button on the rear cover of the phone. That could indicate that the iPhone 8 will have its fingerprint scanner embedded under the screen, which was Apple's intention from the get-go.
Check out all of the new images by clicking on the slideshow below. And if it makes you desire the Apple iPhone 8 even more, just remember that September is just a little more than 12 weeks away.

I must be the only person who actully likes bezels. This phone looks difficult to hold.

I'd rather have them than not. My g6 is fine but less bezel is not going to sway my decision on buying (u11 gets here Wednesday).

We don't know how the real power button will look like since so far, reliable leaks were only for the print panel and the back panel. What would be cool if Apple enlarges the Power Button to make it capacitive so that one could use it for scrolling or so.

I like Samsung S8 approach leaving minimal bezels for the sensors and over all symmetry(Top&Bottom).I also commend Apple for trying to be bezel less as possible but this phone is not symmetrical and the black top is very ugly and is turning me off. I guess i have 2 options now either SG note8 or the Pixel2.

Just that a lot of real estate will be put to waste. You'll now have same overall size but bigger screen which I like. Only thing that I don't like is the stupid 18:9 aspect ratio that all OEMs are against, these days, it just doesn't make sense with such less width. Netflix to take the major blame here. This is one reason why I am not going to buy this year's flagships and might not buy next year as well if it doesn't change.

I like the bezel less design. However, that black thing in the middle looks ugly af

I'm interested to see what Apple do with the status bar (and the bottom nav/touch bar) In these renders, the clock is still below the cutout, so the cutout is redundant I think they should squeeze it into the sides, maybe cycle between time and singal/wifi or battery

it will look fine if you use a black wallpaper. since it will use amoled screens, it will look flush. im also guessing that there will be a black border near the camera for when you watch videos and stuff.

I'd imagine it would be done something like this, using the space as status indicator location. Not sure how they'd do the bottom of the screen but it will probably mirror the top somehow. I made a virtual home button too, just because... :p https://s21.postimg.org/ip455f

If this is the real deal, I'm gonna love to read about how that black bar in the top, suddenly is the new thing....here on iphonearena that was very ugly on the Andy Rubin essential phone, but if it ends up on the iPhone, it will be beautiful.....

It would be a permanent black status bar across on the top with OLED and perfect blacks so it would actually blend right in perfectly across the top

There won't be a white front model, there is only like a little piece of glass that's not screen and it's the top part, everything else is all screen. They'll go the route Samsung did imo and just offer only black front but still different colors on the rest of the device, just still black front

What a nice and perfect design. This will put all the other phones down, very down.
