Leaked Engineering Design Drawings of the iPhone 8?

Posted April 13, 2017 at 2:33pm by iClarified
Engineering design drawings of the iPhone 8 have alleged been leaked on Weibo. The drawings are said to come from within Foxconn.

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.

I hope that is not the touch id sensor on the back... looks like an android phone with Apple logo.

Hope the next iPhone doesn't go Wu-Tang... Homies will be so mad, Apple so done and Samsung so amused. I'm so entertained writing this sh*t :P

Yeah it's too bad Apple's only making the iPhone 8 to appease you. Oh wait...
