By now, it’s no secret that Apple intends to do a complete 180 degree turn this fall when it comes to iPhone design. The Cupertino giant is set to release an almost bezel-less iPhone 8 with no home button and glass casing. But renders have been scarce, even if the fall debut is approaching. Thankfully, recent schematics and talented designers made it possible for us to see the handset up close, in white nonetheless #mobilemagic
So far, mock-ups have shown iPhone 8 in black. With a metallic frame, black glass covering the front and black, it kind of reminded of us iPhone 4. Even the camera bump, which is now vertical and covers a dual camera module, wasn’t so disturbing anymore.
But how would Apple’s design look in white? Designer Martin Hajek gave us the first preview; technically, the body of the iPhone 8 has a more silver hue. It doesn’t look nearly as good as the black version, making us even more painfully aware of Apple’s refusal to make the module sit flush with the back of the phone.
The front is almost bezel-free, with the except of a cutout for FaceTime camera and speaker. Thankfully, there’s no home button to speak of. All in all, the images are faithful renditions of convincing schematics that have leaked on the Internet of late.
@OnLeaks revealed that iPhone 8 will actually be smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, coming at 5.-8-inches. It will just appear bigger thanks to the thinner bezels.
