iPhone 8 prototype images surface on Twitter, but it’s most probably a fake or an old prototype
The iPhone is one of the devices that spark the most rumours, attract the most attention and always enjoy spectacular interest from leakers and tipsters, prior to their launch every year. However, this year is even more special for Apple fans and tech guys from around the globe, as iPhone turns 10 years of age, since it was unveiled in 2007 for the first time.

We have had numerous renders, schematics and dummy-iPhone 8 images circulating the feeds in the last few weeks, as we saw one too many different versions of what the next iPhone would look like. However, Benjamin Geskin, who has shared with us a fair deal of renders for the new iPhone, has recently posted on Twitter alleged prototype images that opt to resemble one of the devices Apple preps to launch in September. However, it’s extremely unlikely that it does, as even Geskin himself seems skeptical.


The images show a device that features rather notable bezels around the sides, with thicker top and bottom parts that still seem a lot slimmer than those on current iPhone models. Nonetheless, this should not be taken as a reliable indication of any kind, as we have seen a sleek edge-to-edge screen iPhone in previous, more legitimately looking renders.

The post does not give info about the device’s measurements and neither does it reveal whether the fingerprint scanner is indeed embedded in the front, or has been moved to the back, as the images only show the device’s front. Therefore, they also don’t provide detail, as to whether the back of the device will feature a vertically arranged camera, like the one we have seen in prior speculative photos.

The prototype is very doubtfully something to go by, as it departs from what we saw in most previous renders. Furthermore, the images show a close shot of the documentation included in the device’s box that reveal an LCD display, instead of the much-anticipated OLED setup for the next iPhone.

As a final note, even if this prototype is a closer-than-not resemblance of an upcoming Apple handset, we can’t know whether it’s an iPhone 7s Plus, iPhone 8, or some other fancy iPhone anniversary name that we don’t know of. In any case, we are bound to get hold of more attractive and legitimate leaks in the months before the official announcement, and will take Gaskin’s latest renders with a whole bag of salt.

The iPhone is the singular most popular line of phones, and a new 10th anniversary model is on the horizon. Just put 2 and 2 together dude.

I am sure this 'prototype' was brought out just to scare potential buyers into getting the Note 8.

I'm amazed you can say that with a straight face after the iPhone 6-7 VS the Galaxy S6-8.

Just because the Apple gods give you a gallon of Kool AId it does not mean you drink all at once. Treat it more like commuion take a shot and return to your seat. No one likes a drunk at church, even at the Church of Apple.

It's slightly uglier than the current iPhone 7,which makes it significantly uglier than most phones .

This is probably fake. It's going to either a Jet white iPhone 7 or just like the iPad 10.5 vs the iPad Pro 9.7. Slightly smaller bezels but same fps as the iPhone 7.

No way that's it. If it is Jony needs to be put out to pasture.
