Before every new iPhone launch, there is always huge amount of speculations and rumours surrounding its release. This year is no exception, more so because it’s the 10th year of the revolutionary device. Many leaked renders have surfaced on the web lately but a new video seems to be the closest look of the much anticipated iPhone 8.
Looking at the footage, we can notice that the iPhone 8 has no bezels at the bottom and it takes a unique approach for the top bezels. The top portion is a blend of display and other necessary hardware such as the earpiece, selfie camera and sensors. As per some rumours, it is also being said that the iPhone 8 will have an iris scanner as a biometric authentication option, similar to the Galaxy S8.
In the video, it can be seen that the rear camera now has a huge bump. Even the dual camera setup is aligned vertically, diverting from last year’s iPhone 7 Plus design. In terms of size, last year’s iPhone 7 seems to be slightly thinner than this rumoured render of iPhone 8.
According to the video, the home button seems to have been ditched and there is no fingerprint scanner to be spotted on the back either. Thus, it seems like Apple has cracked the solution for placing the fingerprint scanner under the display. Earlier this week, Qualcomm launched its new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor at the MWC Shanghai. It has the ability to be placed under display, metal and glass. Considering this, Apple must have figured out an efficient way to do this as well.
Irrespective of Apple’s high-guarded secrecy regarding products, many renders of the iPhone 8 have been leaked over the months. If the iPhone 8 will look like the video portrays it to be, this shall mark a new trend in smartphone design – the bezel-less display. Let’s see what Apple holds for the world of smartphones with its 10th anniversary edition iPhone.
