Apple tenth anniversary is approaching soon, and iPhone 8 is expected to be launched that day, here is the iPhone 8 finial design that leaked out!
The iPhone 8 or the iPhone Edition has been one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of the year with leaks, rumours and renders flying all over the internet.
Apple did not overhaul the design of the iPhone 7 so that they could introduce a radical new design with the tenth anniversary model. The iPhone 7 was thus a relative disappointment with its three year old design and huge bezels.
All this is set to change. Apple is about to radically overhaul the iPhone’s design with the iPhone 8. The tenth anniversary iPhone is also expected to come with a new TrueTone OLED display with a screen to body ratio even better than that of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Last month, sources close to Bloomberg had hinted that the design of the iPhone had not been set in stone and that Apple was experimenting with a few different design options – one with an aluminium back, one with a symmetrical, slightly curved glass on the front and the back and one with a design similar to the original iPhone.
Now, BGR has obtained photos of a new mock-up that is believed to feature the final design of the iPhone 8. The mock-up is is said to have been constructed using actual finalised schematics leaked from factories tasked with building the iPhone 8.
The new mock-up points towards a design with 2.5D curved glass panels on the front and back sandwiched between a rounded polished stainless steel midframe . The rear houses the vertical dual camera setup which sadly seems to feature an oversized bump.

The iPhone 8 is expected to carry forward the dual cameras introduced with the iPhone 7 Plus with improvements here and there. The camera system is expected to come with the iPhone 7 Plus’s 2X optical zoom capabilities along with new augmented reality features.
The mock-up also confirms several rumours floating about pointing towards Apple ditching the physical home button in the iPhone 8. Not only does the mock-up not have a home button, there is no fingerprint sensor to be found as well. This further confirms rumours that Apple is set to embed TouchID underneath the display.
In addition to the iPhone 8 final design, TrueTone OLED display and camera system, the iPhone 8 is expected to come with an IP68 waterproofing, a smart connector for AR and VR, iris scanner, and updated 3D Touch.
