As you can see in the image below the smartphone features a top and bottom bezel that are much smaller than the current generation iPhone. The Home button is gone from the bottom of the device and the earpiece, front camera, and proximity sensor are squeezed into the smaller top bezel. At the back of the device, dual-cameras are arranged in a vertical orientation, similar to previous reports.
The Engineering Validation Test dimensions are listed as 149.501 length, 72.497 width, and 8.624 thickness.
While we can't confirm the image is authentic, similar leaks have been legit in the past. Apple is said to be deciding between multiple prototype designs so this may not be the design we see this fall.
It's widely expected that the 10th anniversary iPhone will be a massive update. It will purportedly have a chassis made of reinforced glass with a stainless steel metal frame and an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display. Another report claims that the device would be a clear piece of glass with a next-generation OLED screen. The 5.8-inch screen is said to feature a main 5.15-inch display area with a reserved 'function area' below for virtual buttons. The device may use a stacked logic board design freeing up space for a larger battery pack. More recently, Apple is said to be equipping the phone with wireless charging, an iris scanner or face scanner, and a 3D camera.
