As many have come to anticipate every September, a new Apple iPhone flagship smartphone is heading our way and this 2017 things are looking eccentric than ever.
From chopping down the size of the bezels to ditching out the physical home button, it looks like the iPhone 8 will receive a radically drastic overhaul from the previous generations. Here are all the leaked details as well as countless rumors and speculations circulating over the Internet about what we can expect to see from the Cupertino-based tech giant later this year.
One of the interesting characteristics of this year’s iPhone 8 rumors has been the unpredictability generated by contradicting rumors and speculations regarding exactly how the next-iteration iPhone will take shape, though many of those skepticism are starting to vanish now.
A new purported image, newly posted by the notorious smartphone leaker Evan Blass, which was picked up Centrio News, gives us a better understanding of what the screen-dominated front panel of the much-awaited iPhone 8 will look like. There’s the now-familiar chunk of area at the top of the panel to house the earpiece, front-facing camera and a number of sensors, and then just a huge stretch of screen display.

The iPhone 8 is framed inside sturdy case from Urban Armor Gear, a company that has the same case for the existing iPhone 7 and other brands’ devices. The March date on the display might suggest that it’s an old render and not strictly prototypical object of Apple’s latest or final iPhone 8 design, however Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is notoriously famous for his insider sources at Apple, has added weight to this leak and describe this as “a good look at the notch” of the upcoming iPhone 8.
