This year’s range of iPhones will arguably be Apple’s most impressive smartphones yet, and recent renders of the iPhone 8 look to be very, very promising. So much so, in fact, that it may just be even more impressive-looking than the Samsung Galaxy S8 devices’ Infinity Displays.
These new renders of the iPhone 8 come from Forbes’ contributor, Gordon Kelly, who has worked with premium case maker Nodus to get a look at the finalised hardware design of the upcoming iPhone. The highlight here is definitely the iPhone 8’s display: it’s said to be an elongated 5.8-inch display with very minimal bezels. Only 4mm of bezels, apparently.
Aside from that, the renders also reveal that the iPhone 8 will in fact come with an enlarged power button. While Kelly can’t confirm why this is the case, many believe that Apple will integrate Touch ID into the power button should the company not manage to integrate it into the display itself.
Finally – but definitely not least – is a cutout at the top portion of the display to accommodate the front-facing camera, sensors and earpiece. Both Kelly and Nodus believe that the remaining corners of the display will show battery status and signal strength, which is actually pretty similar to the Essential Phone‘s approach.
These renders definitely show a very interesting design of the iPhone 8, but they are still based on leaked information; there may still be changes down the road. Nonetheless, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 8 sometime in September 2017; we’ll find out then if this is truly the phone’s final design.
