New Apple iPhone 8 design reveals its total dimension and more features

The iPhone 8 will by all form mark the biggest iPhone smartphone upgrade that have seen since the very first iPhone was launched. After a few years of incremental upgrades to the Apple‘s flagship smartphone, the iPhone 8 is prepping up to launch a number of exciting new devices, alongside of some features that users have been requesting for years.

Without a doubt, the most fascinating feature of the iPhone 8 will be its edgeless OLED screen display, with the surrounding bezels reportedly be as thin as 4mm. The Apple iPhone 8 display is said to be as large as that of the iPhone 7 Plus, even though in a form factor design that’s just a strand of hair bigger than the iPhone 7.

Over the past few month of endless speculations, we’ve seen a seemingly continuous flow of iPhone 8 mockup designs and renders. The most recent arrival comes from smartphone blog, Carved Blog, which posted new images of an iPhone 8 dummy model — supposedly based on a genuine schematics of the impending Apple smartphone — aligned next to existing iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models.

This is extremely helpful for the prospect buyers as it gives the consumers a better sense of what the iPhone 8 form factor and design will look and feel like.

The image below is an iPhone 8 centered between the iPhone 6s and an iPhone 7 Plus. It should be worth noting that the vertical orientation of the iPhone 8’s camera sensors is a design allegedly rooted in Cupertino-based tech giant’s AR and VR plans.

Moreover, the iPhone 8 does not have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the back panel, apparently validating the previous reports claiming that the firm will either embed the Touch ID sensor into the iPhone 8 screen display or ditch it in favor of a 3D face recognition tech.

The new facial recognition feature will be supported by a new 3D sensor, along with an iris scanner; as with the fingerprint-based Touch ID sensor, user will be able to use it to unlock your their iPhone 8, as well as confirming and authenticating payments and log in to secure apps.

Currently in testing, the 3D face scanner is outlined to be able to precisely detect a face and unlock the iPhone 8 within a few hundred milliseconds, and even works like a magic when the smartphone is laid on a flat surface.

As far as the overall depth of the iPhone 8 is concerned, the device will be little thicker than current iPhone 7 lineup. Additionally, the iPhone 8 will be slightly wider than the current iPhone form factor.

Apple’s iPhone 8 will come packed with a number of captivating features, including a wireless charging, a better battery life, improved water resistance, 3D facial recognition technology with Iris Scanner. There is also a 3D laser system intended to enhance augmented reality apps.
