A new leak has surfaced online, which claims to unveil the final design of the upcoming iPhone 8. The details about the smartphone were leaked by Forbes’s Gordon Kelly who earlier also worked with case maker Nodus to reveal the design. But now Gordan claims to reveal greater detail about the all new chassis.
According to Gordan, iPhone 8 will feature a 5.8-inch OLED display with 4mm bezels on all sides to make the device less prone to accidental damage. At the bottom, the smartphone has Lightning port similar to its predecessor, but may have fast charging capabilities as the other end of the charging cable could have a USB-C support. Renders also confirm that there will be no 3.5mm headset jack in iPhone 8 also.
The smartphone will boast dual stereo speakers with a combination of the bottom speaker and an amplified earpiece similar to iPhone 7. The company will keep the enlarged power button because if Apple fails to integrate Touch ID fingerprint sensor on to the display then power button will also work as a fingerprint sensor similar to Sony’s handsets.
The Company will redesign iOS 11 to accommodate the cutout at the top of the display, which consists of a front facing camera and sensors. As shown in pictures top bar will only show connectivity and battery status and the notification will be shifted to the bottom where a new functional area will reside.
As for specification, the handset will sport vertical dual camera setup with 12MP wide-angle and telephoto modules with better aperture. It will also pack an L-shaped battery which will be manufactured by LG and have better battery capacity without increasing the size of the device. Apple iPhone 8 will start from $1,100 to $1,200 and will be available in two storage variants 128GB and 256GB.
