Purported iPhone 8 dummy unit pictured with vertical dual cameras and under-screen fingerprint scanner

Purported iPhone 8 dummy unit pictured with vertical dual cameras and under-screen fingerprint scanner
Designer and occasional leaker Benjamin Geskin claims to have obtained a dummy – more precisely, a CNC-machined model – of the upcoming iPhone 8. However, it's difficult to discern which photos depict a physical unit, and which are a very good modeling job.

We are only certain about the pic showing the iPhone's display, because Geskin 'shopped it over a purported photo of the dummy unit. Do note that the screen he envisions covers the entire front, although there's an overlay depicting the bottom bezel typical of all iPhones up to now.

Although the phone appears rather thick, Geskin claims it measures the same as the iPhone 7 in thickness and size. There's also a Lighting port, and the fingerprint scanner is supposedly built into the display. Geskin also mentioned 4mm bezels, dual front & dual rear cameras, and 2.5D curved glass on the back and front panels. Many of these specs have been listed before.

Despite the leak's questionable nature, most of it could come close to what we'll be seeing in September. But with the variety of schematics and whatnot floating on the web, showing iPhones with fingerprint scanners on the back and different variations of the "edgeless" screen concept, we'd hesitate to bet on anything right now. So treat this one as another wild card.

Yuck this is the the ugliest looking iphone i have ever seen no matter what features or changes it offers we all know looks also do matter to satisfy us as we are paying a premium money for a premium device. Looks like it's time to change or look for some other smartphones!

"what features or changes it offers we all know looks also do matter to satisfy us as we are paying a premium money for a premium device." Speak for yourself. And of course it's ugly... it's a dummy unit.

I bought a 128 douchebag. I be at said the iPhone was ugly. I did say I like how the smaller model looks VS the Plus. But I've been using a 5"+ phone to long to go back. Oh and compare to the S6's, the S7' and the S8's, the iPhone is "ugly. But VS other phones it's not do bad. U should learn to read VS a douchebag troll. I just jealous because I own both and you can't with your broke add. This year alone I will have bought $3000+ with of phones and they will only cost me 1/2. What's you gonna own...douchebag?

Not getting annoyed by capital letters doesn't mean he likes them. Just nothing worth having a temper tantrum over...

the fingerprint scanner will not be underneath the screen,its "too expensive" for Apple to use the tech and they are known for using old tech to cut cost.

We are not talking about Samsung buddy! The company that made plastic phones up until 2014. The company that decided not to do dual cameras and put the FPS on the back instead of behind the screen.......

Samsung phones cost more to make than apple flagships and yet they sell for less than apple flagships. I don't know why they haven't used dual cameras but sure single camera beats iphone 7 plus camera. They couldn't place FPS behind the screen because of technology limitations, not due to cost

The S8 cost more than the IP7 due to the fact that the iPhone 7 is 7 months old. As for the FPS behind the display, they couldn't figure out how to do it that's why. from a innovative standpoint, the S8 has nothing! The simply took the S7/note 7 and stretched the screen. Innovation is putting the dual front cameras and the FPS behind the screen. The advance 3D capabilities are as wel. You better hope the ip8 doesn't have distant charging. Don't write it off. Remember Touch ID was pretty much written off for the ip5s? You saw what happened right?

All the last 3 iPhone costs $×30 or less ro.make from day one. Has nothing to do with how old the phone is. It has to.do.with all the parts being old except the FLU and YOU. If you have to lie...then shut up!

Hey, 3d sensing facial recognition, dual ff cameras, underglass fps, dual rear camera with AR capabilities, 3d touch, oled, A11 procesor, stereo speakers, water resistance, stainless steel frame, crazy battery life, edge to edge screen without accidental touches, stay mad bro!

Lol, some people sure have short term memory. Ever since the iPhone was unveiled, they've never made significant hardware changes over last years model. But alas, stay delusional iSheep.

Yeah, it sure hurts to see the materialization of Einstein's good old saying in you... "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

So I have a question. How is 3D facial recognition any better than any other facial recognition? Dual front cameras. So? Samsung's one camera can take wife angle shots with a second lens. Dual cameras have been proven to be garbage on all phones with them. Samsung screwed up going to a 12MP 4:3 camera VS sticking with 16:9. Even though you can switch it to 16:9 which will take a wife shot without a second lens. The iPhone 7+ has dual cameras and stop doesn't take better pictures than the S7 and the S7 is older than the iPhone 7. 3D touch is limited garbage, stereo speakers on a tiny phone is stupid no matter who does it. IP67 is lower than IP68. Stainless frame. On what model? They one that isn't bear yet? The Samsung edge phones don't have accidental touch issues. You just don't k ow how to use one. ARE? Have you seen it? We have VR already starting 3 years ago. Why should we be mad? Be mad you might get something we had 3 years ago? As much as you fools basnmhed OLED, even though DisplayMate has rates Samsung displays the best since the S4, and is you looking forward to it? You guys are such hypocrites. All those things you mentioned were gimmicky stand useless on Samsung devices, but you wwwa t them on iOs? You guys are a complete and uttered joke. Since all.that you mentioned is it rumors, you have no.kdea what it will.have. Apple Apple of tons of things the Apple Watch was gonna have. How did that turn out? Ended up being worse that the original Gear Apple Watch...$400-$10000 and last 6 hours or less No 3G, nothing. An expensive joke like all their products. Like Windows I buy them because I need them. Of I didn't I would never use Windows or today's Apple products .
