Several photos of what is claimed to be the #iPhone 8’s #Final #Design have been leaked. Case-maker Nodus and technology journalist Gordon Kelly have teamed up to render these alleged iPhone 8 designs, stating that these new photos were based on Apple’s current supply chain.

Bezel-less!

The leaked iPhone 8 photo confirms a 5.8-inch screen and a significantly reduced amount of bezel (4mm). This is definitely a huge design change compared to the last 3 incarnations of the Plus sized iPhones. In fact, the difference is night and day, as the iPhone 7 Plus only has a 67.7 percent screen-to-body ratio, a far cry from the new iPhone 8’s monstrous screen.

Still no USB Type-C

Other details of the said leak are that Apple stands firm in removing the 3.5mm headphone jack for good, as well as sticking to the Lightning cable. A lot of criticism has been thrown Apple’s way, as the inconsistency of their products’ port selection has been quite a mess. This problem is not just present on their smartphones, but also on their popular MacBook and MacBook Pro line as well. Removing the headphone jack from the iPhone while keeping them on laptops and adding USB Type-Cs on MacBooks but refusing to place them on phones.

The positives are here to stay

On the sweet side of things, Apple looks to bring back the stereo speakers found on the iPhone 7. Also, the rumored L-shaped batteries sourced from LG, are a go for the iPhone 8. For a long time now, the iPhone’s battery life has been suspect, I mean, how good is a phone if it’s turned off due to a drained battery? Good thing, these bigger batteries are here to solve such issue.

Dual cameras are also here to stay and are confirmed to have a slight design overhaul as shown in past renders. The new dual camera set-up for the iPhone 8 is now vertically aligned and as for the resolution, it is still unknown but is predicted to stay put at 12MP.

Touch ID placement and pricing

Lastly, the Touch ID placement and the pricing of the 10th anniversary iPhone. Both of these key details are still uncertain as of the moment, and whether Apple would place the Touch ID on the back of the iPhone 8 or would continue with its screen integration is still a mystery. Though reports confirm that Apple does have the technology to do so, applying it on a huge scale just like the iPhone 8 is its biggest hurdle.

Pricing on the iPhone is predicted to be at an all time high, starting at $1,100 or $1,200. Several reports also claim that Apple, only plans to produce 128GB and 256GB variants of the smartphone, thus the high price tag. Stay tuned to Blasting News for your daily dose of tech news and updates.
