We have already seen numerous rumors that the Apple iPhone 8 will have an OLED display with an embedded scanner and a vertical dual-lens camera. A series of alleged case render leaks from /LEAKS shows the dedicated module space for the vertical dual-lens camera as the previous rumors.
The new case renders also showcase a dummy smartphone which may or may not be the actual design of the iPhone 8, so do take it with a grain of salt. That said, the dummy smartphone used in the case doesn’t feature the Touch ID sensor since previous rumors have suggested that the new fingerprint scanner will be embedded within the main display. A recent report from DigiTimes reveals that the new 3D Touch components for the iPhone 8 will be 150% more expensive than the current generation components used in the iPhone 7.
Recently, analyst Simona Jankowski from Goldman Sachs claimed that the Apple iPhone 8 will have a starting price of $1000. Another long-running rumor claims that the device will feature a bezel-less design with an OLED display that’s produced by Samsung. It happens so that Apple and Samsung had reportedly signed a $9 billion-dollar deal for the OLED panels. Apple is also expected to feature the device with wireless charging, according to certain leaked sketches. The iPhone 8 is expected to be unveiled in September 2017. While early reports say that the mass production of the smartphone might get delayed, the latest report claims otherwise, that Apple has already ordered its component manufacturers to start the production by June.
