Here’s your best look at the iPhone 8 based on all the rumors by Antonio Villas-Boas- Business Insider

Here’s your best look at the iPhone 8 based on all the rumors

iPhone 8 MKBHD (3)MKBHD/YouTube

Tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee, also known as MKBHD, got his hands on a dummy model of Apple’s next-generation iPhone, which has so far been known as the iPhone 8.The dummy iPhone 8 model is a culmination of all the rumors and “leaked” details surrounding the iPhone 8’s design. It’s essentially a physical rumor.

As credible and reputable as the rumors’ sources are, this is not the iPhone 8. It’s just a dummy, and the special iPhone that Apple will reportedly unveil during its iPhone event in September could be totally different.

Still, it’s interesting to see a physical manifestation of the rumors we’ve heard.

Check out Brownlee’s iPhone 8 dummy, and his video at the bottom:

Brownlee edited the iOS 11 home screen onto the dummy model using Adobe’s After Effects software to see what the phone might look like while powered on.

The screen is supposedly an OLED display, which looks a lot better than the LCD display on previous iPhones. We know OLED displays are better because Samsung’s Galaxy S8 has an OLED display, and it’s much nicer than the iPhone 7’s display. The colors on OLED displays are more vivid and the color black is deeper, which makes for astounding contrast.

The iPhone 8’s display will purportedly have a 1125 x 2436 resolution, which is sharper than the 1080p resolution on the iPhone 7 Plus.

As rumors claim, the iPhone 8 will have an edge-to-edge display that does away with the majority of the borders around the current iPhone’s display. It makes for a higher screen-to-body ratio that’s becoming more prevalent in flagship smartphones, like the Galaxy S8.

Brownlee also noted how recent rumors are pointing towards a 3D facial recognition system for unlocking the iPhone 8 instead of a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

And it’ll have a “notch” at the top for sensors and the front-facing camera. This is probably where the rumored 3D facial-recognition camera would be located.

As the rumors claim, the iPhone 8 is said to come with a glass back, much like the iPhone 4 and 4S, versus the metal backs we’ve seen since the release of the iPhone 6.

Apart from being a throwback to the glass-backed iPhone 4 and 4s design, the glass back on the iPhone 8 would allow for wireless charging, which has been one of the biggest rumors as of late.

Having a glass back also eliminates the need for antenna lines, which are one of the least popular design features in the iPhone 6, 6s, and 7.

Some rumors say the iPhone 8 will have metal edges.

We’ve also heard about a new vertical design for the dual-lens camera system. On the iPhone 7 Plus, the dual-lens camera is oriented horizontally.

Remember, this is only a dummy, and it’s essentially the same thing as a rumor.

Nothing about the iPhone 8 is certain until Apple itself reveals the final details. We expect Apple to announce the device during its annual iPhone event in September.
