Here’s what Apple’s final iPhone 8 design likely looks like

“After months of rumors, leaks and renders, we just might have our first look at how Apple’s iPhone 8 will look,” Michael Andronico reports for Tom’s Guide.

“The folks at BGR claim that they got their hands on photos of a physical mockup of the iPhone 8’s final design, which was put together using leaked schematics,” Andronico reports. “The device’s appearance lines up with most of the more prominent iPhone 8 rumors; there are glass panels on the front and back, a seemingly borderless display and a vertically oriented iSight camera.”

“This mockup doesn’t quite confirm the existence of a Touch ID sensor being built into the display, but considering the front panel doesn’t appear to have any bezels, it’s very likely,” Andronico reports. “Overall, the mockup looks pretty slick — the rear glass panel in particular could go a long way in making Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone stand out.”

MacDailyNews Take: If this is it, it’s certainly a beautiful device, however, as far as standing out in the exterior looks department, what we have in our hand right now – iPhone 7 Plus in Jet Black – looks very similar and at least as gorgeous (at least when displaying an image on black, so the non-edge-to-edge display isn’t visible):

It’s that expected OLED edge-to-edge display that will really make iPhone 8’s exterior stand apart from all previous iPhones.

  1. So it looks like the previous design, which looked like the previous one before that, which looks like the previous before that, and the previous design before that.

    Repeat.
