Apple iPhone 8 is not new to the leaks, but no render has revealed the upcoming iPhone in such detail as the latest one. The video, which shows what is believed to be the dummy model of the iPhone 8 reveals every design element of the device. From edge-to-edge display to the glass back, the video gives a closer look at the tenth-anniversary special iPhone edition. The iPhone 8 model in the video has been designed keeping all the leaks and renders in mind and it is models like these that help case-makers design the cases for the device before the smartphone is launched.

The video was created by YouTuber Marques Brownlee and the iPhone 8 dummy model was provided to him by Sonny Dickson, the popular tech tipster. The first thing noticed in the video is that the smartphone will come with an edge-to-edge display with higher screen to body ratio. Along with negligible side bezels, the top and bottom bezels are done away with too. The smartphone comes with a 2.5D curved glass, and features a top cutout for the front camera and the sensors. Apart from the earpiece grille and the front camera, there is also another sensor prominently displayed – likely to be the facial recognition scanner. Apple iPhone 8 is rumored to come with a feature to help the user unlock the device even if it is on a table – without touching the phone at all.

Clearly, there is no home button below the display. The entire smartphone looks compact compared to the iPhone 7 Plus. As it is all glass and display with no bezels the device looks extremely small despite having the same display size as the iPhone 7 Plus. On the back of the smartphone is the vertical dual rear camera setup with the flash module placed between the camera lenses. The back is completely bare except for the camera module and the Apple logo, and it is covered in glass confirming that Apple iPhone 8 will most likely support wireless charging.

As the smartphone is only a dummy model, there is no idea of how the device will work. But the video has tried to give a fair idea of what the home-screen will look like. The status bar on the top will be split into two – with the top bezel cut out in the center. The battery and the timing will be on the right edge whereas the signal and notification icons will be on the left. Unfortunately, the video does not give any idea of where the fingerprint scanner will be placed under the display and how will it function.
