There’s a new iPhone 8 concept video which shows off the purported new phone from every angle.
Here’s what you can see from the video:
- An all-glass back A screen which almost goes edge to edge Two cameras in a vertical arrangement, with an accompanying bump Someone measuring the phone with a ruler, with the phone coming to 143.50 x 71.03 x 7.46 mm
To be clear, this is a dummy version of the iPhone 8, and not the real deal. The design is based on leaked factory 3D CAD drawings. That means the final iPhone 8 might look different.
But all of the details stack up with earlier iPhone 8 rumours. These current measurements suggest the iPhone 8 might be smaller than earlier reports claimed, but it will still be bigger than the iPhone 7, which measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. The iPhone 7 Plus is 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm.
There is something noticeably missing from the video render of the iPhone 8, and that’s the Touch ID sensor. Multiple reports suggest Apple will put its fingerprint scanner under the screen for the first time, meaning you won’t have to fiddle about with the home button. Killing the home button seems difficult to pull off, but a Chinese phone company called Vivo is already demoing under-screen sensor tech. So it’s possible Apple will have the tech ready in time.
