Video: hands-on with alleged iPhone 8 dummy makes us crave the real thing
The iPhone 8 is getting leaked a lot recently and rightly so — it's shaping up to be the hottest phone to be announced in the second half of this year. Well, we could say the same about the Galaxy Note 8, but we'd have to avoid that exact adjective. 

Enough going on tangents. We can't expect all of the rumors about the next Apple flagship to be true, but there are a lot of sources reaffirming each other's leaks. Everyone agrees that the “premium edition” iPhone that's going to be unveiled this September will have super-thin bezels, a very compact body for its 5.15-inch display, and a dual camera module in a vertical setup.

Now, we've seen renders, cases, and some crude dummy units leak in pictures below. But tech journalist Shai Mizrachi has actually recorded a video with a pretty nice dummy unit, which is allegedly modelled after the real thing (meaning – the iPhone 8, as it's going to appear when launched).

Mr. Mizrachi has leaked some information about the iPhone 7, LG G6, LG G5 in the past and his sources have been more or less on point. So, we would say that there's a huge chance this dummy is legitimate.

The phone looks really, really sleek with the rumored glass sandwich design reaffirmed. It is said that Apple is finally adopting wireless charging, which is why the iPhone 8 will need a glass panel on its back — the feature can't work with bare aluminum. There is no fingerprint scanner on the back — thankfully — refuting earlier rumors that there might be one just below the Apple logo. The dual camera module is wider, but protrudes less than the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. We'll see if that's how it turns out on the actual iPhone 8.
