iPhone 8 case shows us the device's size compared to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus


We've been hearing for a while now that the 10th anniversary iPhone 8 will follow in the footsteps of "bezel-less" phones released earlier this year — the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 — and have an extremely high screen-to-body ratio. We've seen schematics, renders, and dummy device leaks that affirm this and show us a dual camera module, a-la iPhone 7 Plus, on the device's back, though, a vertically-oriented one.

According to the rumor mill, the iPhone 8's display diagonal will be about 5.1 inches, placing it right between the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus' screens, in terms of size. However, due to the new handset's extremely high screen-to-body ratio, it is believed that the phone's physical size will be just barely larger than the compact iPhone 7's.

A case that has been allegedly made for the iPhone 8 has been caught in the wild, giving us some more insight into the phone's proportions and features. It has been compared in hands-on pictures with the currently available iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and we can draw a couple of conclusions from what we see (assuming the case is the real deal!).



So, first off, we definitely see the shell being a fit for a phone that is a bit larger than the current iPhone 7, but definitely a lot smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus. There is no opening for a fingerprint scanner on the back, reaffirming yet again that this questionable design decision may just turn out to be either a false rumor or a ditched prototype decision.

A very interesting thing to note is the opening for the dual camera on the phone's back. As we've seen in other reports — it's a vertically-oriented setup for reasons yet unknown. However, we can't help but notice how enormous the opening is — it definitely looks like it's made for a camera bump, larger than the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. What could this be about?

If you follow leaks often, you probably know that case manufacturers like to jump the gun early and start developing case models for upcoming hot phones. Some design theirs on speculation, others get exact dimensions of the unreleased phone and make a legit case for it, and there are even the lucky ones who get an official dummy to design their case around. Whether the case we are looking at here is one that is backed by official data, or a test unit built on speculation and leaks, we don't know for sure. So, nothing's final yet!

Expect really amazing pictures with the iPhone X or 8 or whatever its gonna be named ! I Like the thicker (hopefully big battery) design with a big camera bump. Should be a great device ! If the leaks are anything to go by , will make the switch to IOS after 6 years of android !

Not just pictures , bigger , better displays , better battery life , oled , better cameras to name a few. I feel all these will be put together solidly back in the iPhone 8. Im using the S8 right now and i absolutely love it. Will make the switch to iOS if it lives up to my expectations. I am not biased toward any manufacturer or OS. I love tech .

iPhone has consistently been the worse phone ever since Steve Job stopped making the calls. They remove good features and add terrible ones. Like removing the headphone jack. Adding a 2nd camera that doesnt do much. Tim cook adding the rainbow color stuff which does nothing but promote his agenda. They still have the terrible big bezels. They still have terrible software that doesnt have half of the features of the note series. The note 8 will RIP apple. Tho samsung is failing ever since they stopped using the removable battery feature. Hopefully, the LG V30 will still have it

The camera has seemingly been moved to the top right at the back of the iPhone...

In that one picture, they've just turned the case sideways to line up the vertical cut out with the horizontal dual lens on the 7 plus. The video clarifies this.

Your orientational view is as bad as most of your comments.

Camera module so freaking big and protruding? What happened to their style and symmetrical design language?

Symmetrical design language? The iPhones have ALWAYS had the camera in the top left corner.

He's talking about how big it is. And how much it protrudes. But I guess you didnt read that. Blind fanboy!

No, I read it. My point still stands. The design was never symmetrical. He said "symmetrical design language". But you can't take anyone defending the iPhone in any way, so you decided to attack me. Who's REALLY the fanboy?
