Images of the iPhone 8 mock-up leaked; alleged final design revealed

Apple's much-anticipated flagship device for 2017, the iPhone 8, had its alleged final design leaked in images. It revealed the phone's all glass and stainless steel sandwich design and dual rear camera setup.

The iPhone 8 is certainly one of the most-awaited smartphones for this year. It seems like most of us, if not everyone, would like to know what the upcoming Apple's flagship will look like. We have heard previously that the company will make a major redesign on the phone. This time, we have the chance to take a closer look thanks to the leaked mock-up photos of the impending device. The images are said to reveal the final design of the iPhone 8. Nevertheless, it is still advisable to take this information with a pinch of salt.

Going back to the photos, the phone was shown with no physical home button. The fingerprint scanner that is once embedded in the button will be relocated under the screen. The 5.8-inch display will be using an OLED panel and will be protected by a 2.5D curved glass. At the back, we can find the vertically-placed dual camera configuration on the upper left corner that is very noticeable due to its oversized camera bump. The back panel, just like the front, is covered with glass while the sides of the phone are rounded stainless steel which makes it somewhat similar to the design of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4s. The power button is positioned on the right whereas the volume rocker is located on the left. Looking at the bottom, we can spot a lightning port between a pair of speaker grills but still no signs of the 3.5mm audio jack.

The iPhone 8 is expected to be launched alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in September. However, its launching might be pushed back to either October or November if the previous rumors were to be believed. Well, if the iPhone 8 will really sport wireless charging and iris scanning, it will be definitely worth the wait.
