Apple iPhone 8 has taken on everybody to be the most rumoured smartphone of this year and we have another one in the basket. There is a handsome amount of time until we witness Apple dropping the curtains off the next iPhone but the rumour world is doing its rounds on regular basis. A new schematics have been leaked online which supposedly was first posted on Weibo and then by famous other tipsters like Benjamin Geskin and OnLeaks.
The latest schematics now highlight more details about the inside of the upcoming iPhone 8. Evident from the picture, there is no compartment for a home button and the device does sport a vertical dual camera setup. Also, interestingly there is no cut out for fingerprint scanner at the back in this one which is line with the latest rumours from Geskin but contradictory to previous schematics which did show a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner compartment. However, no fingerprint compartment at the back means Apple might implement the fingerprint scanner underneath the display, at the front, which has also been in the list of rumours which the next iPhone has gone through this season.
Apart from this, a huge circle can also be spotted at the back of the device which most likely is for the wireless charging.
Recollecting some previous rumours, Apple is said to launch three new iPhones this year. The 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone (probably iPhone 7s and 7s Plus) devices will be up much before, probably in September. Further, as per Brian White (analyst), the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be available for pre-orders along with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone devices, however, the availability of the 5.8-inch variant is likely to happen sometime in October-November.
Another important area where Apple is likely to work is the display. As per previous reports, Apple is planning to implement a bezel-less curved OLED display on the next iPhone but some unsuspected delays in the development recently pointed out that Apple might, in fact, shift to normal OLED displays. Nevertheless, design schematics are not meant to be taken as the final draft so we request you to take all this information with a pinch of salt.
