Unofficial renders show how the iPhone 8 may look like.
A new unofficial render claims to show us the final dimensions of the upcoming iPhone in September. According to the drawings, iPhone 8 is almost identical to the current iPhone 7, measuring at 137.54mm x 67.54mm. For comparison, iPhone 7 is 138.3 mm tall and 67.1 mm wide. However, there is no physical home button in the drawings, which is in line with multiple rumors suggesting that Apple has finally ditched the button in favor of a more sophisticated fingerprint recognition. But another report claims that Apple is facing issues with putting the Touch ID sensors under the screen.
According to the new render, iPhone 8 has a 5.768 inch screen across the diagonal, but the same body size as the iPhone 7 thanks to the removal of the home button and tiny bezels around the screen. There is an earpiece at the top, sensors and cameras up front and a microphone hole. All these sensors and components should be integrated into the screen, but their actual number and type remains a mistery.
Apple is currently evaluating different options for facial recognition that may complement the Touch ID if the company manages to put the fingerprint reader underneath the screen. On the back we can see a dual-lens camera configuration, with LED flash between the two lenses.
