Apple iPhone 8 was said to hit mass production last week, which made it obvious that soon we will begin to witness more details on the smartphone’s final design. The latest image coming from tipster Evan Blass shows the alleged iPhone 8 encased in a third-party case, and it all but confirms the smartphone’s all-screen design.

The encased iPhone 8 continues to show minimal bezels and end-to-end stretched display with a cut out a top for the front camera, earpiece, and other sensors. There is no physical home button to be seen in the image. Also, it is not clear if the iPhone 8 will feature a rear-mounted Touch ID or the rumored power key with integrated biometric authentication sensor.

According to 9to5Mac, the third-party case is believed to be manufactured by UAG. The case makers are known for manufacturing iPhone 7 cases. Also, iPhone 8 cases from another case manufacturer, which goes by the name of Olixar have leaked months ago revealing similar design of the smartphone. The Olixar cases were claimed to be based on schematics, and information acquired from a factory in charge for iPhone 8 production. As amusing as it may sound, iPhone 8 cases are already on sale or up for pre-orders even when the device has not been officially announced by the company. Many case makers even have iPhone 8 case listed on e-commerce platforms. These cases are primarily based on leaks and renders of iPhone 8 that we have come across so far.
