Apple iPhone 8 has leaked in multiple images in the past, but the latest video gives us a close up look at what is said to be the dummy model of the upcoming Apple device. The video not only details the iPhone 8’s design, but also shows us certain features and specifications of the device. Along with the video, there are also certain images that have emerged, comparing the iPhone 8 to the iPhone 7 Plus. The video is not the first of its kind, though the overall look does seem very similar to all previous leaks.

The video was first uploaded on YouTube by 9to5Mac, and the leaked images are a continuation of what we saw in the past. The leaked images show the phone just like it is expected to come – with no physical home button, no rear Touch ID, a vertical dual camera setup on the rear panel, and extremely slim bezels. The images show the phone in all black with silver accents in the dummy model but on launch, the phone is expected to be all black, unless Apple is experimenting with a new color option. The images were shared by Facebook user Shai Mizrachi. He also posted comparison photos with the iPhone 7 Plus.

In the comparison images, iPhone 7 Plus is clearly the larger device. The iPhone 8 is expected to be sized somewhere between iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The top of the iPhone 8 features a cutout for the earpiece grille and the front camera. The bottom part of the display is supposed to house the Touch ID sensor though, the area is yet to be specified in any of the leaks. The image comparison shows no differences except for the lack of the home button and the change in the camera placement.
Apple is reportedly facing multiple issues with the display embedded sensor as recent reports hinted at. The issue might lead to Apple pushing back the launch of the phone. While the phone is expected to be announced something in September or early October, if the issues continue to persist, the sale and shipment of devices will not commence till much later in the year. iPhone 8 being the 10th anniversary special phone has a whole lot of expectations and Apple is anticipating high demand for the device. Issues in the flagship phone might cause hassles for Apple and lead to complications in the sale.
