Would you give $170 for a 3D-printed iPhone 8 mockup?


The Chinese mockup industry has been churning plastic dummies of upcoming iPhones for as long as the handset has been popular, but with the 10th anniversary iPhone 8 nearing its unveiling, the game has been brought up to a whole new level now. 

Besides the usual dummies based on rumors and leaked specs, some of which you can see above, below is an elaborate 3D-printed model made by a graphics aficionado who has had some success this year with accurately depicting the Galaxy S8 based on leaked schematics. 

He is selling the fruit of his labor for $170.90 online, and, while it is seemingly of a better quality compared to the Chinese efforts, it is still a mockup, It looks good, though, and faithfully represents what we have heard about this unique upcoming iPhone, dual vertical camera and all, so some may be tempted to pass it for the real thing, or at least pretend it's a prototype they have exclusive dibs on, so be forewarned. Would you shell out almost two Benjamins for this convincing iPhone 8 mockup? Hey, it's "3D printed," after all.
