All-screen iPhone 8 design looks fly in leaked case render

Everyone loves a good spoiler and prolific leaker Evan Blass is always happy to oblige us with some (generally) accurate renders of the latest handsets. His latest is a render of Apple’s 10th anniversary handset – what is been dubbed the iPhone 8 – enveloped within a rather rugged-looking third-party case that is currently available for the iPhone 7.

It’s perhaps the best render we’ve seen so far, clearly showing the front of the phone, and all but confirming Apple’s accidental leak of the all-screen design. Dual sensors at the top, the usual in-ear piece and a front-facing camera are also clearly visible.

So long, Home Button

The render also seems to confirm that Apple may well have done away with the iconic Home Button at the base of the 5.8-inch display. 

So there’ll probably be another way to unlock the phone. Perhaps the infra-red Face ID that Apple accidentally told us about or a fingerprint scanner on the rear.

Given we’ve only got a render of the front of the handset, with a date stamp of March, this may not be the latest design of the handset that Apple will launch next month. So it’s best to wait and see what will come our way when the latest flagships are launched, hopefully in mid-September.

  • Think the iPhone 8 is overrated? A cheaper iPhone 7S could be arriving in September, too.
